Universal Citation: MT Code § 33-20-1106 (2021)

33-20-1106. Credit union groups. The lives of a group of individuals may be insured under a policy issued to a credit union organized pursuant to the laws of the state of Montana or the Federal Credit Union Act, which shall be deemed the policyholder, to insure eligible members for amounts of insurance not in excess of the share balance of each member, based upon some plan which will preclude individual selection, for the benefit of someone other than the credit union or its officials and subject to the following requirements:

(1) The members eligible for insurance under the policy shall be all the members of the credit union who meet standard physical requirement conditions of the insurer or all of any class or classes thereof determined by conditions pertaining to their age or to membership in the credit union or both.

(2) The premiums for the policy shall be paid by the policyholder, either wholly from the credit union's funds or partly from such funds and partly from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance. No policy may be issued on which the entire premium is to be derived from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance. A policy on which part of the premium is to be derived from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance may be placed only if at least 75% of the then eligible members, excluding any as to whom evidence of individual insurability is not satisfactory to the insured, elect to make the required contribution. A policy on which no part of the premium is to be derived from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance must insure all eligible members or all except any as to whom evidence of individual insurability is not satisfactory to the insurer.

(3) The policy must cover at least 25 members at the date of issue.
