CHICAGO - An Agreed Order of Rehabilitation by the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, has been entered against Millers First Insurance Company (“Millers First”) with the consent of its Board of Directors.  During the time that Millers First is in rehabilitation, the Illinois Department of Insurance (DOI) Director, as Rehabilitator, will continue the payment of policyholder claims and policies will remain in force until the expiration of their term.
