OPINIONS OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

Editor's notes.

- In light of the similarity of the statutory provisions, an opinion under former Code 1933, § 22-101 et seq. and Article 13 of former Chapter 2, which was repealed by Ga. L. 1988, p. 1070, § 1, effective July 1, 1989, is included in the annotations for this Code section.

Proper method of disposing of accumulated and undisbursed receivership funds held by the Insurance Commissioner when creditors or claimants of defunct domestic stock and mutual insurance companies cannot be located, or when checks issued to them for their pro rata portion have been for any reason returned unpaid, is to turn such funds over to the Fiscal Division of the Department of Administrative Services (now the Office of Treasury and Fiscal Services), which shall ultimately remit the funds to the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia; in cases involving all other types of defunct insurance companies, the Insurance Commissioner should petition the superior court that supervised the particular insurance company's dissolution proceedings for leave to deposit the accumulated and undisbursed receivership funds in its registry to be subsequently dealt with by order of the court as it deems advisable. 1975 Op. Att'y Gen. No. 75-83 (decided under former Code 1933, § 22-101 et seq.).
