About the Guaranty Fund

Pursuant to Indiana Code § 23-2-4, the Indiana Securities Division regulates the offer and sale of Continuing Care agreements in the state. The Act also establishes the Indiana Retirement Home Guaranty Fund, designed to protect the financial interests of Indiana citizens who enter into continuing care agreements with providers, should the provider declare bankruptcy.

The Fund consists of a $100 fee levied upon each contracting party and is administered by a board of directors. There are five (5) members of the Board appointed by the Governor from a list submitted by the Secretary of State. Two (2) members must be Continuing Care residents, one (1) must be a Continuing Care provider representative, one (1) must have experience in banking and finance, and one (1) must have experience in insurance. The Indiana Securities Commissioner also serves as an ex officio member.
