AS 21.78.170. Form of Claim.

(a) All claims against an insurer against which delinquency proceedings have been begun must set out in reasonable detail the amount of the claim, or the basis upon which the amount can be ascertained, the facts upon which the claim is based, and the priorities asserted, if any. The claims shall be verified by the affidavit of the claimant, or someone authorized to act on behalf of the claimant and having knowledge of the facts, and shall be supported by documents that may be material to the claims.

(b) All claims filed in this state shall be filed with the receiver, whether domiciliary or ancillary, in this state, on or before the last date of filing as specified in this chapter.

(c) If a claim is denied in whole or in part by the receiver, written notice of the determination shall be given to the claimant or the claimant's attorney by first class mail at the address shown in the proof of claim. An objection by the claimant must be filed with the receiver within 60 days after the date of mailing of the notice. If an objection is not filed, the claimant may not object to the determination.

(d) If an objection is filed with the receiver and the receiver does not alter the denial of the claim as a result of the objection, the receiver shall ask the court for a hearing as soon as practicable and give notice of the hearing by first class mail to the claimant or the claimant's attorney and to any other person directly affected, not less than 10 nor more than 30 days before the date of the hearing.

(e) A claim need not be considered or allowed if it does not contain all the information in (a) of this section that might be applicable. The receiver may require that a prescribed form be used and may require that other information and documents be included.

(f) At any time, the receiver may request the claimant to present information or evidence supplementary to that required under (a) of this section, and may take testimony under oath, require production of affidavits or depositions, or otherwise obtain additional information or evidence.

(g) A judgment or order against an insured or the insurer entered after the date of filing of a successful petition for liquidation, and a judgment or order against an insured or the insurer entered at any time by default or by collusion, need not be considered as evidence of liability or the amount of damages. A judgment or order against an insured or the insurer entered within the four months before the filing of the petition need not be considered evidence of liability or of the amount of damages.

(h) A claim of a guaranty association or foreign guaranty association shall be in the form and contain the substantiation agreed to by the association and the receiver.
