Oregon Statutes - Chapter 734 - Rehabilitation, Liquidation and Conservation of Insurers - Section 734.410 - Levy of assessment; domestic mutual and reciprocal insurers.

(1) Upon the basis of the report provided for in ORS 734.400, including any amendments thereof, the court, ex parte, may levy one or more assessments against all persons who, as shown by the records of the insurer, were members (in the case of a mutual insurer) or subscribers (in the case of a reciprocal insurer) at any time within one year prior to the commencement of the delinquency proceeding.

(2) Such assessment or assessments shall cover the excess of the probable liabilities over the reasonable value of the assets, together with the estimated cost of collection and percentage of uncollectibility thereof. The total of all assessments against any member or subscriber, with respect to any policy, whether levied pursuant to this chapter or pursuant to any other provisions of the Insurance Code, shall be no greater than the amount specified in the policy of the member or subscriber and as limited under the Insurance Code; except that, if the court finds that the policy was issued at a rate of premium below the minimum rate lawfully permitted for the risk insured, the court may determine the upper limit of such assessment on the basis of such minimum rate.

(3) No assessment shall be levied against any member or subscriber with respect to any nonassessable policy issued in accordance with the Insurance Code. [1967 c.359 §295]
