USF&G INSURANCE CITED INCORRECTLY IN GREENVILLE, S.C., NEWS ARTICLE; CLARIFICATION REQUESTED

USF&G INSURANCE CITED INCORRECTLY IN GREENVILLE, S.C., NEWS ARTICLE;
 CLARIFICATION REQUESTED
 USF&G Insurance issued the following:
 In today's Greenville News, an article titled "Auto Insurers Get Rate Hikes" appeared and mentioned that USF&G Insurance is withdrawing from South Carolina. USF&G will indeed stop writing only new Personal Lines policies (auto and homeowners insurance) effective Jan. 15, 1992. Current policies will be renewed based on the company's underwriting standards for the calendar year.
 Because the article dealt with auto insurance only, the author deleted the term "Personal Lines." Some have interpreted the story to mean that USF&G is ceasing all of its operations in the state. That is incorrect. USF&G will continue to be a Commercial and Life Insurance carrier in South Carolina. The paper plans to run a clarification in its Saturday edition.
 The company has received calls from agents and insureds who heard this incorrect inference from other media outlets.
 If your paper or station aired a story based on the above article, please follow up with the fact that USF&G will remain an insurer in South Carolina.
 Thank you for your cooperation.
