Virginia Administrative Code
Title 14. Insurance
Agency 5. State Corporation Commission, Bureau of Insurance
Chapter 300. Rules Governing Credit for Reinsurance

14VAC5-300-110. Asset or reduction from liability for reinsurance ceded to an assuming insurer not meeting the requirements of 14VAC5-300-60 through 14VAC5-300-100.

A. Pursuant to § 38.2-1316.4 of the Act, the commission shall allow a reduction from liability for reinsurance ceded by a domestic insurer to an assuming insurer not meeting the requirements of § 38.2-1316.2 of the Act in an amount not exceeding the liabilities carried by the ceding insurer. The reduction shall be in the amount of funds held by or on behalf of the ceding insurer, including funds held in trust for the exclusive benefit of the ceding insurer, under a reinsurance contract with such assuming insurer as security for the payment of obligations under the reinsurance contract. The security shall be held in the United States subject to withdrawal solely by, and under the exclusive control of, the ceding insurer or, in the case of a trust, held in a qualified United States financial institution as defined in § 38.2-1316.1 of the Act. This security may be in the form of any of the following:

1. Cash;

2. Securities listed by the Securities Valuation Office of the NAIC, including those deemed exempt from filing as defined by the Purposes and Procedures Manual of the NAIC Investment Analysis Office, and qualifying as admitted assets;

3. Clean, irrevocable, unconditional, and "evergreen" letters of credit issued or confirmed by a qualified United States institution, as defined in § 38.2-1316.1 of the Act, effective no later than December 31 of the year for which filing is being made, and in the possession of, or in trust for, the ceding insurer on or before the filing date of its annual statement. Letters of credit meeting applicable standards of issuer acceptability as of the dates of their issuance (or confirmation) shall, notwithstanding the issuing (or confirming) institution's subsequent failure to meet applicable standards of issuer acceptability, continue to be acceptable as security until their expiration, extension, renewal, modification or amendment, whichever first occurs; or

4. Any other form of security acceptable to the commission.

B. An admitted asset or a reduction from liability for reinsurance ceded to an unauthorized assuming insurer pursuant to this section shall be allowed only when the requirements of 14VAC5-300-150 and the applicable portions of 14VAC5-300-120, 14VAC5-300-130, or 14VAC5-300-140 of this chapter have been satisfied.
