RS 22:176     

§176.  Contributed surplus

The attorney-in-fact or subscribers of a reciprocal insurer may make contributions to surplus under agreements approved by the commissioner of insurance which may provide for the payment of interest not exceeding eight percent per annum and shall provide that the contributions and interest thereon shall be repaid only out of the surplus of such insurer in excess of the original surplus required of such insurer by R.S. 22:165.  Such excess of surplus shall be calculated upon the fair market value of the assets of the insurer, and any contributions to surplus shall constitute and be enforceable as a liability of the insurer only as against such excess of surplus.  Any unpaid balance of such contributions to surplus shall be reported in the annual statement to be filed with the commissioner of insurance and no part of such contributions shall be repaid to the contributors, except under such terms and in such circumstances as are approved by the commissioner of insurance.
