§ 27-14.3-49. Unclaimed and withheld funds.
(a) All unclaimed funds subject to distribution in accordance with § 27-14.3-46 remaining in the liquidator's hands when he or she is ready to apply to the court for discharge, including the amount distributable to any creditor, shareholder, member, or other person who is unknown or cannot be found, shall be deposited with the general treasurer, and shall be paid without interest except in accordance with § 27-14.3-46 to the person entitled to the funds or his or her legal representative upon satisfactory proof to the general treasurer of his or her right to the funds. Any amount on deposit not claimed within one year from the discharge of the liquidator shall be deemed to have been abandoned and shall be escheated without formal escheat proceedings and be deposited with the general treasurer.
(b) All funds withheld under § 27-14.3-41 and not distributed shall upon discharge of the liquidator be deposited with the general treasurer and paid by him or her in accordance with § 27-14.3-46. Any sums remaining which under § 27-14.3-46 would revert to the undistributed assets of the insurer shall be transferred to the general treasurer and become the property of the state under subsection (a) of this section, unless the commissioner, in his or her discretion, petitions the court to reopen the liquidation under § 27-14.3-51.
