17:30C-31. Proposal for disbursement of assets of insolvent companies; application for approval; notice of application
a. Within 120 days of a final determination of insolvency of a company by a court of competent jurisdiction of this State, the commissioner shall make application to the court for approval of a proposal to disburse assets out of such company's marshaled assets, from time to time as such assets become available, to the New Jersey Property-Liability Insurance Guaranty Association and to any similar organization in another state having substantially the same provision of law.
b. Such proposals shall at least include provision for:
(1) Reserving amounts for the payment of the expenses of administration and the claims falling within priorities established in section 26 of the act to which this act is amendatory.
(2) Disbursement of the assets marshaled to date and subsequent disbursements of assets as they become available.
(3) Equitable allocation of disbursements to the New Jersey Property-Liability Guaranty Association and similar associations established in other states which are entitled thereto; and
(4) The securing by the receiver from each of such associations entitled to disbursements pursuant to this section of an agreement to return to the receiver such assets previously disbursed as may be required to pay claims of secured creditors and claims falling within the priorities established in section 26 of P.L.1975, c. 113 (C. 17:30C-26), in accordance with such priorities. No bonds shall be required of any such association.
c. The receiver's proposal shall provide for disbursements to the associations in amounts at least equal to the payments made or to be made thereby for which such association could assert claims against the receiver and shall further provide that if the assets available for disbursement from time to time do not equal or exceed the amounts of such payments made or to be made by the associations then disbursements shall be in the amount of available assets.
d. Notice of intention to apply for approval of a disbursement of assets shall be given to the associations in and to the commissioners of insurance of each of the states. Any such notice shall be deemed to have been given when deposited in the United States certified mails, first class postage fee paid, at least 30 days prior to submission of such application to the court. Action on the application may be taken by the court provided the above required notice has been given and provided further that the receiver's proposal complies with subsection (b)(1) and (b)(4) of this section.
