(215 ILCS 5/221.6) (from Ch. 73, par. 833.6)
    Sec. 221.6. Priority of special deposit claims.
    The owners of special deposit claims against an insurer for which a receiver has been appointed in a delinquency proceeding in this or any reciprocal state shall be given priority against their several special deposits in accordance with the provisions of the statutes requiring the creation and maintenance of such special deposits. If there be a deficiency in any such special deposit so that the claims secured thereby are not fully discharged therefrom, the claimants may share in the general assets, but such sharing shall be deferred until general creditors, and also claimants against other special deposits who have received a small percentage from their respective special deposits, have been paid percentages of their claims equal to the percentage paid from such special deposit, it being the purpose and intent of this provision to equalize to this extent the advantage gained by the security provided by such special deposits.
