§ 83-20-5 - Continuation of certificate of authority and other approvals

MS Code § 83-20-5 (2013) What's This?

The certificate of authority, agents' appointments and licenses, rates, and other items which the Commissioner of Insurance allows, in his discretion, which are in existence at the time any insurer licensed to transact the business of insurance in this state transfers its corporate domicile to this or any other state by merger, consolidation or any other lawful method shall continue in full force and effect upon such transfer if such insurer remains duly qualified to transact the business of insurance in this state. All outstanding policies of any transferring insurer shall remain in full force and effect and need not be endorsed as to the new name of the company or its new location unless so ordered by the Commissioner of Insurance. Every transferring insurer shall file new policy forms with the Commissioner of Insurance on or before the effective date of the transfer, but may use existing policy forms with appropriate endorsements if allowed by, and under such conditions as approved by, the Commissioner of Insurance. However, every such transferring insurer shall notify the Commissioner of Insurance of the details of the proposed transfer, and shall file promptly, any resulting amendments to corporate documents filed or required to be filed with the Commissioner of Insurance.
