14VAC5-300-70. Credit for reinsurance; accredited reinsurers.

A. Pursuant to § 38.2-1316.2 C 2 of the Act, the commission shall allow credit for reinsurance ceded by a domestic insurer to an assuming insurer that is accredited as a reinsurer in this Commonwealth as of the date on which statutory financial statement credit for reinsurance is claimed. An accredited reinsurer shall:

1. File a properly executed Certificate of Assuming Insurer as evidence of its submission to this Commonwealth's jurisdiction and to this Commonwealth's authority to examine its books and records;

2. File with the commission a certified copy of a certificate of authority or other acceptable evidence that it is licensed to transact insurance or reinsurance in at least one state, or, in the case of a United States branch of an alien assuming insurer, is entered through and licensed to transact insurance or reinsurance in at least one state;

3. File annually with the commission an electronic copy of its annual statement filed with the insurance department of its state of domicile or, in the case of an alien assuming insurer, with the state through which it is entered and in which it is licensed to transact insurance or reinsurance, and a copy of its most recent audited financial statement; and

4. Maintain a surplus as regards policyholders in an amount not less than $20 million, or obtain the affirmative approval of the commission upon a finding that it has adequate financial capacity to meet its reinsurance obligations and is otherwise qualified to assume reinsurance from domestic insurers.

B. If the commission determines that the assuming insurer has failed to meet or maintain any of these qualifications, the commission may upon written notice and opportunity for hearing, suspend, or revoke the accreditation. Credit shall not be allowed a domestic ceding insurer under this section if the assuming insurer's accreditation has been revoked by the commission, or if the reinsurance was ceded while the assuming insurer's accreditation was under suspension by the commission.
