|Illinois Proposed Rules for Insurance Company Bonds Contain Provisions SFAA Sought|
The proposed rules that the Illinois Department of Insurance has issued contain provisions implementing changes SFAA has long sought to make the bonds required for insurance companies to cover their employees and officers more workable. The proposed rules would eliminate the minimum discovery period in the bond and would instead require the coverage to be on a “discovery basis.” The proposed rules also would change the required bond amount so that it would be based on the guidance in the National Association of Insurance Commissioners Financial Condition Examiners’ Handbook. Currently, the bond amount is based on the amount of admitted assets of the company (as determined from year to year) filed with the Department in the company’s annual statement.
