17:46B-14. Statutory premium reserve
a. Every domestic insurance company shall, in addition to other reserves, establish and maintain a reserve to be known as the "statutory premium reserve" for title insurance, which shall, at all times for all purposes, be deemed and shall constitute the unearned portions of premiums due or received and shall be charged as a reserve liability of such title insurance company in determining its financial condition.
b. The statutory premium reserve shall be retained and held by such title insurance company for the protection of the policyholders' interest until released as prescribed in section 15 f. of this act in policies which have not expired. Except as provided in section 17 of this act, assets equal to the amount of such reserve shall not be subject to distribution among creditors or stockholders of such title insurance company until all claims of policyholders or holders of other title insurance contracts or agreements of such title insurance company have been paid in full and all liability on the policies or other title insurance contracts or agreements, whether contingent or actual, has been discharged or lawfully reinsured.
