Subchapter 002 : Cooperative Fire Insurance Corporations(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 3930)
§ 3930. Nonassessment cooperative insurance corporations to commence business
(a) When a cooperative insurance corporation reaches and thereafter maintains an unimpaired free surplus position of no less than $1,000,000, it may apply to the Commissioner for relief from the provisions of subdivisions 3925(3)-(5) and sections 3926 and 3927 of this title and may request approval to become nonassessable. The Commissioner may apply the same standards for admission as are found in chapter 101 of this title applicable to the formation of a domestic mutual insurer. Upon the Commissioner's acceptance of revised articles of incorporation, revised bylaws, and a special financial statement for the calendar year period ending with the last calendar quarter before the request, the Commissioner may allow the corporation to operate as a nonassessment cooperative insurance corporation. The Commissioner may require a statutory financial examination to be conducted at the company's expense prior to final approval.
(b) The Commissioner may prescribe additional surplus, if he or she determines that the kind of insurance to be transacted so requires. (Added 1981, No. 6, § 11.)
