§ 27-2.2-2. Effects of domestication.
Upon domestication in accordance with § 27-2.2-1, the foreign insurer shall become a domestic insurer organized under the laws of this state and have all the rights, privileges, immunities, and powers, and be subject to all applicable laws, duties, and liabilities, of domestic insurers of the same type. The domestic insurer shall then and after this possess all rights that obtained prior to the domestication to the extent permitted by the laws of this state, and be responsible and liable for all the liabilities and obligations that obtained prior to the domestication. The certificate of authority, insurance producers, appointments and licenses, rates, and other items that the insurance commissioner allows, in his or her discretion, which are in existence at the time any insurer licensed to transact the business of insurance in this state transfers its corporate domicile to this or any other state or jurisdiction by domestication, shall continue in full force and effect after the transfer if the insurer remains duly qualified to transact the business of insurance in this state. All transferring insurers qualified in this state shall notify the commissioner of the transfer of domicile and shall provide the commissioner any information and documentation that the commissioner may request. All outstanding policies of any transferring insurer shall remain in full force and effect.
