(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 3503)
  • § 3503. Deposits of domestic insurer doing foreign business

    (a) A domestic insurer may deposit with the Treasurer of this State or with the comptroller or chief financial officer of another state or country funds or securities of the insurer which the laws of such state or country require to enable such insurer to establish agencies or prosecute the business of insurance within such state or country. The Treasurer of this State shall safely keep such securities so deposited with him or her for the benefit of the policyholders of the insurer, but it may receive interest or dividends from the securities, or exchange them for others of equal value.

    (b) If such insurer discontinues doing business in such other states or countries, it may at any time bring an action in the Superior Court against the State of Vermont, provided such deposit is made with the Treasurer of this State, to enforce, administer, or terminate the trust created by such deposit. The process in such action shall be served on the State Treasurer and the Commissioner, who shall appear and answer on behalf of the State. On proof by such company that it has paid or made sufficient provision for the payment of all liabilities arising from business written or transacted in such other states and countries, the court may make such orders and decrees for the payment or return of such funds or securities, or any part thereof, as shall protect the rights of all interested parties and the State Treasurer shall comply therewith. (Added 1967, No. 344 (Adj. Sess.), § 1 (ch. 1, subch. 7, § 1).)
