2013 Mississippi Code
Title 83 - INSURANCE
§ 83-53-11 - Reinsurance and retrocession agreements

MS Code § 83-53-11 (2013) What's This?

An insurer licensed in the State of Mississippi may not enter into any reinsurance agreement or retrocession agreement, with another insurance company after May 1, 1986, whereby credit life or credit accident and health insurance on risks located within this state, would be ceded to an insurer which is not licensed to engage in the writing of such lines of insurance within the State of Mississippi, or which does not meet the statutory financial and other requirements for admission and licensing in this state. An insurer shall not enter into any such reinsurance or retrocession agreement with another insurance company which would by the terms and provisions thereof serve to, either directly or indirectly, circumvent this chapter or any other law of the State of Mississippi, or any regulation issued thereunder. The commissioner shall have the right to inspect, review and approve any reinsurance or retrocession agreement between insurance companies affecting any risks or insureds located in the State of Mississippi pertaining to credit life or credit disability insurance. Provided, however, any reinsurance or retrocession agreements between insurance companies in effect prior to May 1, 1986, shall be allowed to continue, but this chapter shall apply to any renewal, extension, endorsement or similar amendment of any such reinsurance or retrocession agreement.
