Maintenance of solvency.
(a) In the event a domestic society has an authorized control level event described in Section 35A-25 of this Code under circumstances the Director determines will not be promptly remedied, the Director may, in addition to all other actions required or permitted by subsection (b) of Section 35A-25 of this Code, issue an order declaring the domestic society to be in hazardous condition and ordering that all steps be taken to remedy such condition pursuant to this Section.
(b) A domestic society may negotiate an agreement to transfer members, certificates, and other assets and liabilities of the society, in whole or in part, to another organization through merger, consolidation, assumption, or other means. Such transfer shall be concluded within the timeframe established by the Director and subject to approval by the Director. Such transfer agreement shall be deemed fully approved by the domestic society upon majority vote of its board of directors. Such transfer shall be effective notwithstanding the provisions of Section 295.1 of this Code or any other law or regulation or laws of the domestic society requiring another form of notice to or approval by members, which shall be superseded by this Section.
(c) In the event of an agreement to transfer under this Section to an organization without a certificate of authority in this State, the Director may grant a limited certificate of authority to such organization, upon request, if the organization does not apply for and obtain a certificate of authority to transact business in this State. Such limited certificate of authority shall grant the organization authority to service the certificates following the transfer and fulfill all obligations owed to certificate holders but not to otherwise transact insurance business in this State.
(d) The board of directors of a domestic society may suspend or modify its qualifications for membership as necessary or appropriate to facilitate an agreement to transfer under this Section, notwithstanding the laws of the society, or any other law or regulation to the contrary.
