Restructuring Mechanisms (E) Working Group

2023 Membership

2023 Adopted Charges

The Restructuring Mechanisms (E) Working Group will:

  1. Evaluate and prepare a white paper that:

    1. Addresses the perceived need for restructuring statutes and the issues those statutes are designed to remedy. Also, consider alternatives that insurers are currently employing to achieve similar results.
    2. Summarizes the existing state restructuring statutes.
    3. Addresses the legal issues posed by an order of a court (or approval by an insurance department) in one state affecting the policyholders of other states.
    4. Considers the impact that a restructuring might have on guaranty associations and policyholders that had guaranty fund protection prior to the restructuring.
    5. Identifies and addresses the legal issues associated with restructuring using a protected cell.
  2. Consider requesting approval from the Executive (EX) Committee on developing changes to specific NAIC models as a result of findings from the development of the white paper.
  3. Develop best practices to be used in considering the approval of proposed restructuring transactions, including, among other things, the expected level of reserves and capital expected after the transfer, along with the adequacy of long-term liquidity needs. Also, develop best practices to be used in monitoring the companies after the transaction is completed. Once completed, recommend to the Financial Regulation Standards and Accreditation (F) Committee for its consideration.
  4. Consider the need to make changes to the RBC formula to better assess the minimum surplus requirements for companies in runoff.
  5. Review the various restructuring mechanisms, and develop, if deemed needed, accounting and reporting requirements for referring to the Statutory Accounting Principles (E) Working Group.
