34:15-105. There is hereby created a fund to be known as "the workers' compensation security fund," for the purpose of assuring to persons entitled thereto the compensation provided by this chapter, R.S.34:15-1 et seq., or the federal "Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act," 44 Stat. 1424 (33 U.S.C. s. 901 et seq.), or both, for employments insured in insolvent carriers and for the purpose of providing money for first year annual adjustments for benefit payments and supplemental payments during fiscal years 1984 and 1985 provided for by P.L.1980, c.83 (C.34:15-95.4 et al.). Such fund shall be applicable to the payment of valid claims for compensation or death benefits arising from a standard, primary workers' compensation policy heretofore or hereafter made pursuant to this chapter or the federal "Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act," 44 Stat. 1424 (33 U.S.C. s. 901 et seq.), and remaining unpaid, in whole or in part, by reason of the default, after March 26, 1935, of an insolvent carrier.  Expenses of administration also shall be paid from the fund as herein provided.  Such fund shall consist of all contributions received and paid into the fund by carriers, as herein defined, all property and securities acquired by and through the use of moneys belonging to the fund, and of interest earned upon moneys deposited or invested as herein provided. The fund shall be administered by the New Jersey Property-Liability Guaranty Association in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.

Compensation pursuant to the federal "Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act," 44 Stat. 1424 (33 U.S.C. s.901 et seq.), shall be payable under this article only with respect to coverage or risks located or resident in this State.  The insolvency, bankruptcy, or dissolution of the insured shall effect a termination of compensation provided under this article for claims arising under the federal "Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act," 44 Stat. 1424 (33 U.S.C. s.901 et seq.).
