Title 8 : Banking and Insurance

Chapter 141 : CAPTIVE INSURANCE COMPANIES

Subchapter 001 : GENERAL PROVISIONS

(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 6011)
  • § 6011. Reinsurance

    (a) Any captive insurance company may provide reinsurance, comprised in subsection 3301(a) of this title, on risks ceded by any other insurer, and may provide reinsurance of annuity contracts as defined in section 3717 of this title that are granted by any other insurer.

    (b) Any captive insurance company may take credit for the reinsurance of risks or portions of risks ceded to reinsurers complying with the provisions of subsections 3634a(a) through (f) of this title. Prior approval of the Commissioner shall be required for ceding or taking credit for the reinsurance of risks or portions of risks ceded to reinsurers not complying with subsections 3634a(a) through (f) of this title, except for business written by an alien captive insurance company outside the United States.

    (c) In addition to reinsurers authorized under the provisions of section 3634a of this title, a captive insurance company may take credit for the reinsurance of risks or portions of risks ceded to a pool, exchange, or association acting as a reinsurer which has been authorized by the Commissioner. The Commissioner may require any other documents, financial information, or other evidence that such a pool, exchange, or association will be able to provide adequate security for its financial obligations. The Commissioner may deny authorization or impose any limitations on the activities of a reinsurance pool, exchange, or association that, in the Commissioner's judgment, are necessary and proper to provide adequate security for the ceding captive insurance company and for the protection and consequent benefit of the public at large.

    (d) For all purposes of this chapter, insurance by a captive insurance company of any workers' compensation qualified self-insured plan of its parent and affiliates shall be deemed to be reinsurance.
