Insurers' Rehabilitation and Liquidation Act
§ 27-14.3-57 Ancillary formal proceedings.
(a) If a domiciliary liquidator has been appointed for an insurer not domiciled
in this state, the commissioner may file a petition with the superior court for
the county of Providence requesting appointment as ancillary receiver in this
(1) If he or she finds that there are sufficient assets of
the insurer located in this state to justify the appointment of an ancillary
(2) If the protection of creditors or policyholders in this
state requires this.
(b) The court may issue an order appointing an ancillary
receiver in whatever terms it shall deem appropriate. The filing or recording
of the order with the recorders of deeds in this state imparts the same notice
as a deed, bill of sale, or other evidence of title duly filed or recorded with
that recorder of deeds.
(c) When a domiciliary liquidator has been appointed in a
reciprocal state, then the ancillary receiver appointed in this state may,
whenever necessary, aid and assist the domiciliary liquidator in recovering
assets of the insurer located in this state. The ancillary receiver shall, as
soon as practicable, liquidate from their respective securities those special
deposit claims and secured claims which are proved and allowed in the ancillary
proceedings in this state, and shall pay the necessary expenses of the
proceedings. He or she shall promptly transfer all remaining assets, books,
accounts, and records to the domiciliary liquidator. Subject to this section,
the ancillary receiver and his or her deputies shall have the same powers and
be subject to the same duties with respect to the administration of assets as a
liquidator of an insurer domiciled in this state.
(d) When a domiciliary liquidator has been appointed in this
state, ancillary receivers appointed in reciprocal states shall have, as to
assets and books, accounts, and other records in their respective states,
corresponding rights, duties, and powers to those provided in subsection (c) of
this section for ancillary receivers appointed in this state.
