§464.  Dissolution

A.  A self-insurer that desires to dissolve a self-insurance plan shall apply to the commissioner for authority to dissolve.  Applications to dissolve shall be on forms prescribed by the commissioner and shall be approved or disapproved by the commissioner within sixty days of receipt.  Dissolution of a self-insurer or a self-insurance plan without authorization is prohibited and shall not absolve a plan, a self-insurer, or its participants from fulfilling the plan's continuing obligations.

B.  An application to dissolve shall be granted if either of the following conditions is met:

(1)  The plan has no outstanding liabilities including incurred but not reported liabilities.

(2)  The plan is covered by an irrevocable commitment from a licensed insurer which provides for payment of all outstanding liabilities and for providing all related services, including payment of claims, preparation of reports, and administration of transactions associated with the period during which the plan provided coverage.

C.  Upon dissolution of any self-insured trust, after payment of all outstanding liabilities and indebtedness, the assets of the plan shall be distributed to all employers participating in the plan during the last five years immediately preceding dissolution.  The distributive share of each employer shall be in the proportion that all contributions made by the employer during the five-year period bear to the total contributions made by all participating employers during such five-year period.
