17B:21-1. Annual statement; forms
17B:21-1. a. Every insurer transacting business in this State shall annually, on or before March 1, file with the commissioner a statement subscribed and sworn to by its president or the chairman of the board if he is the chief executive officer and secretary, or, in their absence, by two of its officers and by a qualified actuary, showing the financial condition at the close of business on December 31 of the year last preceding, and its business for that year in the format adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and in use at the time the statement is due. The annual statement shall be prepared in accordance with the annual statement instructions and the Accounting Practices and Procedures Manual adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and all applicable provisions of law. Additionally, every insurer shall file quarterly statements in the format adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners covering the periods ending on March 31, June 30 and September 30, which shall be filed within 45 days after each such date. Quarterly statements shall be confidential and shall not be subject to public inspection or copying pursuant to P.L.1963, c.73 (C.47:1A-1 et seq.). All statements shall be submitted in the form and contain any additional matters the commissioner prescribes.
b. The commissioner may also address any inquiries to the insurer or its officers in relation to its condition or affairs, or any matter connected with its transactions, and the officers of the insurer shall promptly reply in writing to all such inquiries. The commissioner may, for good cause, extend the time within which the statement or any part thereof may be filed. The annual and quarterly statements of an alien insurer shall embrace only its business and condition in the United States, and shall be subscribed and sworn to by its resident manager or principal representative in charge of its United States business.
c. If an insurer domiciled in this State makes a request in writing no more than 60 days prior to December 1, the commissioner shall annually, in the month of December, furnish to such insurer one or more blanks in the form of the statement adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and in use at the time furnished.
d. Insurers issuing both participating and nonparticipating policies shall make such separate statement of profits and losses, margins and expenses, with reference to each of such kinds of business, and showing the manner in which any general outlays of the insurer have been apportioned to each of such kinds of business, as may be required by the commissioner.
e. The commissioner shall have power to make from time to time such modifications and additions in such form and the matters contained therein as he may deem desirable or necessary to ascertain the condition and affairs of the insurer.
