AS 21.78.291. Duties of Agents.

(a) A person who receives notice in the form prescribed in AS 21.78.290 that an insurer that the person represents as an agent is the subject of a liquidation order, shall, within 15 days after receipt of that notice, give written notice of the liquidation order as provided in this section. The notice must be in writing and shall be sent by first class mail to each policyholder or other person named in a policy issued through the agent by the insurer, at the last address contained in the agent's records. A policy is considered to be issued through an agent if the agent has a property interest in the expiration of the policy, or if the agent has had in the agent's possession a copy of the declarations of the policy at any time during the life of the policy, unless the ownership of the expiration of the policy has been transferred to another. The written notice issued under this section must include the name and address of the insurer, the name and address of the agent, identification of the policy impaired and the nature of the impairment, including termination of coverage as specified in AS 21.78.100(d) - (g). Notice under this section by a general agent satisfies the notice requirement for an agent under contract to the general agent. Each agent obligated to give notice under this section shall file a report of compliance with the receiver.

(b) An agent failing to give notice or file a report of compliance as required in (a) of this section is, after a proceeding under AS 21.06.070 - 21.06.240, subject to a penalty of not more than $1,000 and suspension or revocation of the agent's license issued under this title.

(c) The receiver may waive the duties imposed by this section if the receiver determines that other notice to policyholders of the insurer under liquidation is adequate.
