  • The writing of life insurance when part of an employee benefit plan under ERISA.

  • The formation and re-domestication of captives formed as reciprocal exchanges.

  • The waiver of actuarial reports under qualifying conditions

  • The formation of captive insurer entities at the Secretary of State prior to applying for a Certificate of Authority.

  • Clarification of existing provisions of the law regarding the use of adjusters and investments.
