2017 New Jersey Revised Statutes
TITLE 17B - INSURANCE
Section 17B:34-4 - Filing
Whenever any matter is required to be filed with the commissioner, the same shall be deemed to have been filed on the date it is received by mail, addressed to the commissioner, or on which it is delivered by means other than mailing. The commissioner shall not return or refuse to file any matter required to be filed with him because of any technical defect of form or content, but in any such case he shall notify the person involved of the defect or defects and of a reasonable date by which a correction, amendment or supplement shall be supplied. Unless the commissioner states that intervening rights or interests are or may be affected, or unless the person making the same shall indicate otherwise, the correction, amendment or supplement shall relate back to the date of the initial filing of the matter. In the alternative, the person filing the matter may withdraw the defective filing.
