At least four U.S. insurers won approval on Thursday to raise billions of dollars through the government’s bank bail-out plan, the U.S. Treasury Department said.
Hartford Financial , the No. 4 US insurer and beset by worries about capital, got preliminary approval to raise $3.4bn via the Troubled Assets Relief Program, known as TARP.
The three other insurers that also secured a greenlight are Prudential Financial , Lincoln National , and the Principal Financial Group , a Treasury spokesman said.
