41-2858.  Bulk reinsurance — Mutual insurers. (1) A domestic mutual insurer may reinsure all or substantially all of its business in force, or all or substantially all of a major class thereof, with another insurer, stock or mutual, by an agreement of bulk reinsurance after compliance with this section. No such agreement shall become effective unless filed with the director and approved by him in writing.
(2)  The director shall approve such agreement within a reasonable time after filing if he finds it to be fair and equitable to each domestic insurer involved, and that such reinsurance if effectuated would not substantially reduce the protection or service to its policyholders. If the director does not so approve, he shall so notify each insurer involved in writing specifying his reasons therefor.
(3)  If for reinsurance of all or substantially all of its business in force, the plan and agreement for such reinsurance must be approved by vote of not less than two-thirds (2/3) of each domestic mutual insurer’s members voting thereon at meetings of members called for the purpose, pursuant to such reasonable notice and procedure as the director may approve. If a life insurer, right to vote may be limited to members whose policies are other than term or group policies, and have been in effect for more than one (1) year.
(4)  If for reinsurance in a stock insurer of all or substantially all of the insurance in force of a mutual insurer, the agreement must provide for payment in cash to each member of the insurer entitled thereto of his equity, if any, in the business reinsured as determined under a fair formula approved by the director, as based upon the reserves, assets (whether or not "admitted" assets) and surplus, if any, of the mutual insurer to be taken over by the stock insurer.
(5)  No director, officer, agent or employee of any insurer party to such reinsurance, nor any other person, shall receive any fee, commission or other valuable consideration whatsoever for in any manner aiding, promoting, or assisting therein except as set forth in the reinsurance agreement.
