The bond shall be executed by the attorney and by an authorized corporate surety and shall be subject to the commissioner's approval.
(2) The bond shall be in the penal sum of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000), aggregate in form, conditioned that the attorney will faithfully account for all moneys and other property of the insurer coming into his or her hands and that he or she will not withdraw nor appropriate to his or her own use from the funds of the insurer any moneys or property to which he or she is not entitled under the power of attorney.
(3) The bond shall provide that it is not subject to cancellation unless thirty (30) days' advance notice in writing of cancellation is given both the attorney and the commissioner.

(c) Action on the attorney's bond or to recover against any deposit made in lieu of the attorney's bond may be brought at any time by one (1) or more subscribers suffering loss through a violation of its conditions, or by a receiver or liquidator of the insurer. Amounts recovered on the bond shall be deposited in and become part of the insurer's funds. The total aggregate liability of the surety shall be limited to the amount of the penalty of the bond.
