Illinois Compiled Statutes 215 ILCS 5 Illinois Insurance Code. Section 114

    (215 ILCS 5/114) (from Ch. 73, par. 726)

    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2017)

    Sec. 114. Renewal of certificate of authority.

    (1) The Director shall renew for one year the certificate of authority of a foreign or alien company on the first day of July of the calendar year following the calendar year in which it is admitted to transact business in this State and annually thereafter, without application by the company, upon payment of the annual privilege tax imposed by this Code, if any, provided the Director is satisfied that

        (a) none of the facts specified in this article as

    grounds for revoking a certificate of authority exists; and

        (b) the company is complying with the conditions for

    admission in respect to capital, contingent liability, the investment of its assets or the maintenance of deposits in this or another state and maintains the surplus which similar domestic companies transacting the same kind or kinds of business are required to maintain.

    (2) Except in case of nonpayment of taxes, the Director shall give notice of his intention to refuse to renew the certificate of authority of a foreign or alien company and the grounds therefor at least twenty days before the end of the term for which the existing certificate was issued, and, the company shall be given an opportunity for a hearing before the end of such term.

    (3) In the event that a company admitted to transact business in this State prior to the effective date of this Code has been and is transacting in this State or in any other state or country the kind or kinds of business enumerated in Class 1 of section 4 and in addition thereto any of the kinds of business not enumerated in such class, the Director may for a period of three years renew annually its certificate of authority to transact such kinds of business. At the end of such three year period or at the end of any extended period as herein provided for, the Director may extend the period during which the certificate of authority of such company may be renewed annually, upon a showing by the company at a hearing before the Director that

        (a) it has made reasonable progress in the

    discontinuance of kinds of business other than those enumerated in Class 1 of section 4; and

        (b) complete and immediate discontinuance of such

    kinds of business would result in undue loss to the company and the policyholders would suffer materially thereby; or

        (c) there are other reasons for such extension deemed

    by the Director to be good and sufficient. The extension herein provided for shall be for such period as the Director may deem proper on the showing made, but the total of such extended periods shall not exceed three years.
