20th Century Insurance's Financial Rating Upgraded

June 03, 1997

A.M. Best last week upgraded its financial rating of 20th Century Insurance Co. by two grades to an A minus, up from a B plus rating.

"We are pleased 20th Century's financial strength has been continually recognized and ratings upgraded by these rating agencies," said 20th Century's chief executive William Mellick in a statement.

The Woodland Hills-based insurance company has gradually been improving its financial performance since it came close to going out of business after paying out about $1 billion in damage claims from the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
