According to Jun P. who has been contacting the Insurance Commission about Philippine Prudential Life Insurance Company (PPLIC), the Insurance Commission has started the LIQUIDATION process for PPLIC on February 7, 2018.
LIQUIDATION of PPLIC means tuluyan nang magsasara ang PPLIC at ibebenta na ang lahat ng natitirang assets and properties para merong pambayad sa mga claims against the company (claims ng planholders at creditors). Thanks, Jun, for the definition.
According to Fel M, she emailed Atty. Iris Bonifacio, the liquidator of PPLIC, on Feb 21, 2018, and this email below was Atty. Bonifacio’s response. I am guessing that this email below is the standard email that Atty. Bonifacio emails to anyone emailing her asking about PPLIC. Thank you, Fel, for sharing with us Atty. Bonifacio’s response:
Dear PPLIC Policyholder,
Philippine Prudential Life Insurance Corporation (PPLIC) had been placed under liquidation by the Insurance Commission and appointed the undersigned as the Liquidator of the company. The Liquidator took her oath of office on 07 February 2018.
With the current financial position of PPLIC, it is in the condition of insolvency as defined under Section 200 of the Amended Insurance Code, that states:
xxx “The term Insolvency means the inability of an insurance company to pay its lawful obligations
as they fall due in the usual and ordinary course of business as may be shown by its failure to maintain the solvency requirements ” (emphasis and italics supplied.)
It is for this reason that PPLIC was placed under liquidation since the Insurance Commissioner had determined that it is insolvent as defined in the Insurance Code. It cannot resume business with safety to its policyholders and creditors and as public interest requires, ordered its liquidation. The Commissioner had designated a Liquidator who, with convenient speed, reinsure its outstanding policies, convert the assets of the PPLIC to cash, sell, assign or otherwise dispose of these to the policyholders, creditors and other parties for the purposes of settling the liabilities or paying the debts of PPLIC. The Liquidator may also institute such actions as may be necessary in the appropriate court to collect and recover accounts and assets of PPLIC and to do such other acts as may be necessary to complete the liquidation as ordered by the Commissioner.
As Liquidator, I have to hire an IC-accredited external auditor to audit the financial statements of PPLIC and hire an accredited Actuary to determine the liquidation value of PPLIC’s liabilities to its policyholders and other creditors.
I must also take control of all the assets of PPLIC and convert the same to cash for its distribution according to the approved Liquidation Plan. Note that properties of PPLIC must be sold in a public auction or negotiated to at least three (3) prospective buyers so publication of the sale must be made. For club share to be sold, preferential rights of the club must be observed. For shares of stocks, the current market value will be the basis for the selling price.
In accordance with CRL Memo No. 10-2009 of the Commission, liquidation must should be finished within two (2) years from the date of appointment or within six (6) months from the date of the prescription period given through publication to claimants to file their claims, whichever comes later.
So, dear policyholder, please await the Notice that will be published in a newspaper of general circulation (usually the Philippine Star) for you to file your claim (s).
Atty. Iris L. Bonifacio

Here’s a list of troubled insurance companies as of Nov 2016.
These notes below were written in 2010
Since Philippine Prudential Life Insurance Company is associated with Danvil Plans, we’re going to write some information about this company. A lot of info here were taken from the website of the Insurance Commission.
Philippine Prudential is an insurance company; it is not a pre-need firm.
It is different from pre-need firm Prudential Life Plans Inc. whose license was revoked by the SEC in 2009. These two firms are not affiliated with each other.
Philippine Prudential is one of 35 life insurance firms whose licenses have been renewed by the Insurance Commission every year for the past years. Their newest licenses are for the license year 2009 to 2010.
Of the 35 life insurance firms, Philippine Prudential is:
- 17th in ranking based on premium income as of December 31, 2009
- 17th in ranking based on first-year premium as of December 31, 2009
- 22nd in ranking based on paid-up capital as of December 31, 2009
As can be seen on both the websites of Philippine Prudential and Danvil Plans and in SM malls, the two firms use the same sales offices in SM Pampanga, SM Fairview, SM North Edsa, SM Megamall and SM Southmall.
