Code of Virginia
Title 38.2. Insurance
Chapter 60. Viatical Settlements Act

§ 38.2-6006. Examinations; record retention; investigations.

A. Viatical settlement providers, viatical settlement brokers, and persons seeking a license under this title to transact the business of viatical settlements in this Commonwealth shall be subject to examination by the Commission pursuant to Article 4 (§ 38.2-1317 et seq.) of Chapter 13 of this title. For purposes of completing such examination, the Commission may examine or investigate any person, or the business of any person, insofar as the examination or investigation is, in the sole discretion of the Commission, necessary or material to the examination of a licensee.

B. A person required to be licensed by this chapter shall for five years retain copies of (i) all proposed, offered or executed contracts, purchase agreements, underwriting documents, policy forms, and applications from the date of the proposal, offer or execution of the contract or purchase agreement, whichever is later; (ii) all checks, drafts or other evidence and documentation related to the payment, transfer, deposit, or release of funds from the date of the transaction; and (iii) all other records and documents related to the requirements of this chapter or Article 6.1 (§ 38.2-1865.1 et seq.) of Chapter 18 of this title. This section does not relieve a person of the obligation to produce these documents to the Commission after the retention period has expired if the person has retained the documents. Records required to be retained by this section must be legible and complete and may be retained in paper, photograph, microprocess, magnetic, mechanical, or electronic media, or by any process that accurately reproduces or forms a durable medium for the reproduction of a record.

C. The Commission may investigate suspected fraudulent viatical settlement acts and persons engaged or alleged to be engaged in the business of viatical settlements.
