(a) A certificate of authority issued or renewed under this title continues in force as long as the insurer is entitled to it under this title and until suspended or revoked, or otherwise terminated, subject, however, to continuance of the certificate by the insurer each year by payment before June 30 of the continuation fee set under AS 21.06.250. The method of payment must be by electronic or other payment method specified by the director by regulation under AS 21.06.250 .
(b) If not continued by the insurer, its certificate of authority shall be suspended at midnight on June 30 following the failure of the insurer to continue it in force. The certificate of authority shall expire on June 30 one year following its suspension due to failure to continue the certificate of authority. The director shall promptly notify the insurer of the occurrence of a failure that may result in suspension of its certificate of authority.
(c) The director may reinstate a certificate of authority that the insurer has inadvertently permitted to expire, after the insurer has fully cured all its failures that resulted in the expiration and upon payment by the insurer of the fee for reinstatement in addition to the current continuation fee, set under AS 21.06.250 . Otherwise, the insurer shall be granted another certificate of authority only after filing an application and meeting all other requirements as for an original certificate of authority in this state.
(d) The director may amend a certificate of authority at any time to accord with changes in the insurer's charter of insuring powers.Section: Previous 21.09.060 21.09.070 21.09.080 21.09.090 21.09.100 21.09.110 21.09.120 21.09.130 21.09.135 21.09.140 21.09.150 21.09.160 21.09.170 21.09.175 21.09.180 Next
