Draft Reinsurance Agreement

 

Article 1

PREAMBLE

 

1.1   Parties to the Agreement

This is an agreement for indemnity reinsurance (the "Agreement") solely between US Alliance Life and Security Company, of Topeka, Kansas (the "Company") and General Re Life Corporation, of Connecticut (the “Reinsurer"), each, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”.

 

The acceptance of risks under this Agreement shall create no right or legal relation whatsoever between the Reinsurer and the insured, owner, or beneficiary of any insurance policy or other contract of the Company.

 

This Agreement shall be binding upon the Company and the Reinsurer and their respective successors and assigns.

 

1.2

Compliance

The Company represents that, to the best of its knowledge, it is in compliance with all state and federal laws applicable to the business reinsured under this Agreement. In the event that the Company is found to be in non-compliance with any law material to this Agreement, this Agreement shall remain in effect and the Company shall indemnify the Reinsurer for any direct loss the Reinsurer suffers as a result of the non-compliance, and shall seek to remedy the non-compliance.

 

1.3   Construction

This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Connecticut.

 

1.4   Entire Agreement

This Agreement shall constitute the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the business reinsured hereunder. There are no understandings between the Parties other than as expressed in this Agreement and any change or modification of this Agreement shall be null and void unless made by amendment to this Agreement and signed by both Parties.

 

1.5   Severability

The invalidity or unenforceability of any one or more phrases, sentences, clauses or sections of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any of the remainder of this Agreement.

 

1.6   Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)

The Parties represent that they are using, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to continue to be in compliance with all applicable economic sanction laws. Neither Party shall be deemed to provide cover or be liable to pay any claim or provide any benefit hereunder to the extent that the provision of such cover, payment of such claim or provision of such benefit would expose that Party to any sanction, prohibition or restriction under United Nations resolutions or the trade or economic sanctions, laws or regulations of the European Union, United Kingdom, Canada or United States of America (the “Laws”). Whenever coverage provided by this Agreement would be in violation of any such economic or trade sanctions such coverage shall be null and void. Neither Party shall be required to take any action under this Agreement that would violate said Laws, including, but not limited to, making any payments in violation of the Laws.

 

Page 4 of 39

 

 

US Alliance Life and Security

Draft Reinsurance Agreement

 

Should either Party discover or otherwise become aware that a reinsurance transaction has been entered into or a payment (including beneficiary payments) has been made in violation of the Laws, the Party who first becomes aware of the violation of the Laws shall notify the other Party, and the Parties shall cooperate in order to take all necessary corrective actions.

 

The Parties agree that such reinsurance transaction shall be null, void and of no effect from its inception, to the same extent as if the reinsurance transaction had never been entered into. In such event, each Party shall be restored to the position it would have occupied if the violation had not occurred, including the return of any payments received, unless prohibited by law.

Article 2

BASIS OF INSURANCE

 

On or after 12:01 A.M. Eastern Standard Time on the Effective Date of this Agreement, whenever the Company issues a policy providing insurance within the limits permitted by the Underwriting Guidelines of the Company as described in Schedule D and the Company retains its maximum limit of retention as shown in Schedule A, the Company shall cede and the Reinsurer shall automatically accept reinsurance in amounts not exceeding the amounts in Schedule A, provided that the policy has not been offered on a facultative basis to any reinsurer, including the Reinsurer.

 

This Agreement shall apply to policies issued on citizens or permanent residents of the United States who are domiciled within the United States.

 

The reinsurance coverage shall be issued in accordance with the policy forms, underwriting manual, claims administration procedures, rates and guidelines agreed to by the Reinsurer and the Company at the time this Agreement was entered into and more particularly referenced in Schedule D. Any deviation from these materials shall require prior written approval by the Reinsurer.

 

Except as set forth in Schedule A, the Company may not reinsure the amount it has retained on the business covered under this Agreement on any basis without the Reinsurer’s written consent, which consent may be withheld for any reason.

US Alliance Life and Security

Article 3

LIABILITY

 

The liability of the Reinsurer shall begin and end with the liability of the Company. Reinsurance shall be inforce and binding on the Reinsurer as long as the issuance of insurance by the Company constitutes the doing of business in a jurisdiction in which the Company is properly licensed and the reinsurance premiums continue to be paid when due while the insurance remains inforce.

 

The liability of the Reinsurer shall be determined in accordance with the Company’s policy issued in connection with the coverage giving rise to reinsurance. The Company shall send to the Reinsurer a copy of each policy form requiring reinsurance and no reinsurance on any policy shall be effective until the policy forms for the benefits reinsured are approved in writing by the Reinsurer and are in the possession of the Reinsurer.

 

The Company affirms that its retention schedule, underwriting guidelines, issue rules, premium rates, policy forms and claims guidelines applicable to the reinsured policies and in use as of the Effective Date, have been offered and supplied to the Reinsurer.

 

The Company shall promptly notify the Reinsurer in writing of any proposed changes in its operating guidelines, underwriting guidelines, claims guidelines or policy forms. This Agreement shall not extend to policies issued pursuant to changes to the underwriting guidelines or policy forms unless the Reinsurer has consented in writing to accept policies subject to such changes or claims adjudicated pursuant to changes to the claims guidelines.

Article 4

REINSURANCE PREMIUM

4.1

Payment of Premium

Reinsurance premiums are due and payable monthly. The Company shall calculate the amount of reinsurance premium due and, within thirty (30) days after the close of the month for which reinsurance is in effect, shall send the Reinsurer a statement that contains the information shown in Schedule C, showing reinsurance premiums due for that period. If an amount is due the Reinsurer, the Company shall remit that amount together with the statement. If an amount is due the Company, the Reinsurer shall remit that amount within thirty (30) days of receipt of the statement.

 

4.2

Failure to Pay Premium

The payment of reinsurance premiums shall be a condition precedent to the liability of the Reinsurer for reinsurance covered by this Agreement. In the event that reinsurance premiums are not paid when due, the Reinsurer shall have the right to terminate the reinsurance under all policies having reinsurance premiums in arrears. If the Reinsurer elects to exercise its right of termination, it shall give the Company thirty (30) days written notice of its intention to terminate said reinsurance. If all reinsurance premiums in arrears, including any which may become in arrears during the thirty day period, are not paid before the expiration of said period, the Reinsurer shall be relieved of all liability. Policies on which reinsurance premiums subsequently fall due shall automatically terminate if reinsurance premiums are not paid. Terminated reinsurance may be reinstated, subject to approval by the Reinsurer, within sixty (60) days of the date of termination upon payment of all reinsurance premiums in arrears. The Reinsurer shall have no liability for any claims incurred between the date of termination and the date of the reinstatement of the reinsurance. The right to terminate reinsurance shall not prejudice the Reinsurer's right to collect premiums for the period reinsurance was in force prior to the expiration of the thirty (30) day notice.

 

4.3

Late Payment of Premium

In the event that any premium payment is delinquent, the Reinsurer reserves the right to charge the Company an interest penalty equal to two (2) percentage points plus the quarterly U.S. Treasury Bill rate in effect on the date the premium payment becomes thirty (30) days delinquent.

 

4.4   Change In Premium Rates

If the Company changes premium rates on in force business, the Reinsurer shall share proportionately in these rate changes. The Company shall notify the Reinsurer of any such change not less than sixty (60) days prior to its effective date.

 

The Reinsurer shall not modify any expense allowances on business reinsured under this Agreement unless, in the reasonable judgment of the Reinsurer, the experience justifies a rate increase of at least ten percent (10%) and, after such notification by the Reinsurer, the Company fails to file for and make a good faith effort to obtain such an increase.

 

Page 8 of 39

 

 

US Alliance Life and Security

Draft Reinsurance Agreement

 

If the Reinsurer intends to modify the expense allowances in the manner stated above, the Reinsurer shall give the Company sixty (60) days written notice of the need for a rate increase. If the Company does not respond within the notice period, or if the Company decides not to file for the required rate increase, the Reinsurer may change the expense allowances by giving thirty (30) days prior written notice to the Company.

 

The Reinsurer shall not modify rates as set forth in Schedule B for inforce business unless, in the reasonable judgment of the Reinsurer, the experience justifies a rate increase of at least twenty five percent (25%) and, after such notification by the Reinsurer, the Company fails to file for and make a good faith effort to obtain such an increase.

 

If the Reinsurer intends to modify the rates in the manner stated above, the Reinsurer shall give the Company sixty (60) days written notice of the need for a rate increase. If the Company does not respond within the notice period, or if the Company decides not to file for the required rate increase, the Reinsurer may change the reinsurance premiums by giving thirty (30) days prior written notice to the Company.

 

In the case of either a reinsurance premium increase when the Company's premiums are not changing or an allowance decrease, the Company may recapture the business from the Reinsurer based upon original pricing assumptions and reserves.

 

Any such changes shall be incorporated into this Agreement by amendment.

 

It is the intent of both Parties to this Agreement that the Reinsurer shall review experience on a periodic basis and may provide recommendations to the Company with respect to the need for any rate increases on the policies reinsured, although the Company reserves the authority to decide both the amount and timing of any rate increases to their customers.

 

4.5   Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)          

The Parties agree to provide to each other all information necessary to comply with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) consistent with Sections 1471 – 1474 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and any Treasury Regulations, or other guidance issued pursuant thereto, including, without limitation, applicable Forms W-9 or W-8BEN-E, as the case may be, and any information necessary for a Party to enter into an agreement described in Section 1471(b) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and to comply with the terms of that agreement or to comply with the terms of any inter-governmental agreements between the U.S. and any other jurisdictions relating to FATCA.

 

Applicable United States tax forms, allowing the other Party to conclude that no FATCA withholding is required, shall be provided within thirty (30) days after execution of this Agreement, if not already so provided. Also, either Party shall provide updated forms or any such other information within thirty (30) days of:

written request by the other Party; or

learning that any such information previously provided has become obsolete or inaccurate.

 

Each Party to this Agreement acknowledges and agrees that if it fails to supply such information within the time period stated above, it may be subject to a 30% U.S. withholding tax imposed on payments subject to such withholding under FATCA, to be withheld and paid to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service by the other Party.

Article 5

SETTLEMENT OF CLAIMS

 

5.1   Notice

Claims covered under this Agreement include only claims which occur under policies reinsured under this Agreement, and any additional riders specified in Schedule A which are provided by the underlying policy and are reinsured under this Agreement.

 

The Company shall notify the Reinsurer, as soon as possible, after it receives a claim on a policy reinsured under this Agreement. When requested by the Reinsurer, the Company shall provide the Reinsurer with copies of all proofs of loss, underwriting papers, investigation reports and a statement showing the amount paid on the claim by the Company, plus any information the Reinsurer may request. Additionally, the Company shall provide the Reinsurer with copies of all proofs of loss for the first twenty-five (25) claims received under this Agreement. The Reinsurer shall not be liable for any claim(s) submitted more than one (1) year after said claim is first reported to the Company.

 

5.2

Liability and Payment

Whenever a claim is made on a policy reinsured under this Agreement, and in accordance with the underlying policy provisions, the Reinsurer shall consider its liability to the Company to be for the amount of reinsurance for that policy as determined in Schedule A.

 

The Reinsurer reserves the right to request documentation for any claim when deemed appropriate, and to conduct periodic audits to review claims documentation. Nothing herein shall in any manner limit or restrict the Reinsurer's right to audit under this Agreement.

 

Nothing herein shall require the Reinsurer to pay any claim that is not properly payable under the terms of the underlying policy or this Agreement.

 

The Reinsurer shall have no liability for ex gratia payments.

 

5.3   Contested Claims

The Company shall notify the Reinsurer of its intention to contest or compromise a claim that exceeds fifty thousand dollars ($50,000). Unless agreed otherwise, all contestable claims shall be routinely investigated. If the Reinsurer chooses not to participate in a contested claim, it shall pay its full amount of reinsurance liability on such claim and shall thereby be relieved of all future liability with respect to such contested claim.

 

If the Reinsurer joins the Company in a contest or compromise, the Reinsurer shall participate in the same proportion that the amount at risk reinsured with the Reinsurer bears to the total amount at risk to the Company on the claim and shall share in the reduction in liability in the same proportion.

 

5.4   Extra Contractual Damages

The Reinsurer shall not participate in punitive or compensatory damages or statutory penalties that are awarded against the Company as a result of an act, omission or course of conduct committed by the Company, its agents, or representatives in connection with claims covered under this Agreement.

 

Page 10 of 39

 

 

US Alliance Life and Security

Draft Reinsurance Agreement

 

For purposes of this Article, the following definitions shall apply:

“Punitive Damages” are those damages awarded as a penalty, the amount of which is neither governed nor fixed by statute.

“Compensatory Damages” are those amounts awarded to compensate for the actual damages sustained, and are not awarded as a penalty nor fixed in amount by statute.

“Statutory penalties” are those amounts awarded as a penalty, but are fixed in amount by statute.

 

5.5   Misstatement

In the event of an increase or decrease in the amount of the Company's liability on a policy reinsured hereunder because of a misstatement of age, sex, or other risk classification, which is established in the course of investigating the claim, the Company and the Reinsurer shall share in the change in amount in proportion to its respective net liability prior to the change. The reinsurance premium for all policy years shall be recalculated on the basis of the adjusted amount using premiums and reserves at the correct risk classification, and the adjustment for the difference in reinsurance premiums shall be made without interest.

Further, the Company agrees to send to the Reinsurer copies of all underwriting manuals or criteria, requirements, and retention schedules affecting reinsurance ceded and to keep the Reinsurer fully informed by sending all subsequent changes of said materials.

Article 7

INSOLVENCY

 

7.1   Definition of Insolvency

A Party to this Agreement shall be deemed to be insolvent when it:

1.

applies for or consents to the appointment of a receiver, rehabilitator, conservator, liquidator, or statutory successor of its properties or assets; or

2.

is adjudicated as bankrupt or insolvent; or

3.

files or consents to the filing of a petition in bankruptcy, seeks reorganization or an arrangement with creditors or takes advantage of any bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation or similar law or statute; or

4.

becomes the subject of an order to rehabilitate or an order to liquidate as defined by the insurance code of the jurisdiction of the Party’s domicile.

 

7.2   Insolvency of the Company

In the event of insolvency of the Company, all payments normally made to it by the Reinsurer shall be payable directly to the liquidator, receiver or statutory successor of the Company on the basis of the liability of the Company under the policies reinsured without diminution because of insolvency of the Company.

 

In the event of insolvency of the Company, the liquidator, receiver or statutory successor shall give the Reinsurer written notice of the pendency of a claim on a policy reinsured within a reasonable time after the claim is filed in the solvency proceeding. During the pendency of the claim, the Reinsurer may investigate the claim, and in a proceeding where the claim is to be adjudicated, the Reinsurer may, at the Reinsurer's own expense, interpose in the name of the Company (its liquidator, receiver or statutory successor) any defense or defenses which the Reinsurer may deem available to the Company or its liquidator, receiver or statutory successor. 

 

The expense thus incurred by the Reinsurer shall be chargeable, subject to court approval, against the Company as part of the expense of liquidation to the extent of a proportionate share of the amount of reinsurance that may accrue to the Company solely as a result of the defense undertaken by the Reinsurer.

Article 8

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

 

In the event of a dispute, the Parties agree to the following process of dispute resolution. Within fifteen (15) days after the Reinsurer or the Company has first given the other Party written notification of a specific dispute, each Party shall appoint a designated company officer to attempt to resolve the dispute. The officers shall meet at a mutually agreeable location as soon as possible and as often as necessary, in order to gather and furnish the other with all appropriate and relevant information concerning the dispute. The officers shall discuss the problem and shall negotiate in good faith without the necessity of any formal arbitration proceedings. During the negotiation process, all reasonable requests made by one officer to the other for information shall be honored. The designated officers shall decide the specific format for such discussions. Such discussions shall be for settlement purposes and without prejudice and inadmissible in any arbitration or other dispute resolution proceeding.

 

If the officers cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days of their first meeting, the dispute shall be submitted to formal arbitration, unless the Parties agree in writing to extend the negotiation period for an additional thirty (30) days.

 

All disputes and differences between the Parties on which an amicable understanding cannot be reached shall be decided by arbitration in Stamford, Connecticut or such other location to which the Parties mutually agree. The following procedure shall apply.

 

Upon written request of either Party, each Party shall choose an arbitrator who shall be disinterested in the outcome of the arbitration proceeding and the two chosen shall select a third neutral arbitrator, who is disinterested in the outcome of the arbitration proceeding. If either Party refuses or neglects to appoint an arbitrator within thirty (30) days after receipt of the written request for arbitration, the requesting Party may appoint a second arbitrator. Such notice of arbitration shall be sent certified or registered mail. If the two arbitrators fail to agree on the selection of the third arbitrator within thirty (30) days of their appointment, each of them shall name three individuals, of whom the other shall decline two, and the decision as to the third arbitrator shall be determined by drawing lots.

 

All arbitrators shall be active or retired officers of United States domiciled life insurance or life reinsurance companies and disinterested in the outcome of the arbitration. Each Party shall submit its case to the arbitrators within thirty (30) days of the appointment of the third arbitrator.

 

The Parties hereby waive all objections to the method of choosing the arbitrators, it being the intention of both Parties that all the arbitrators be chosen from those submitted by the Parties.

 

The arbitrators shall have the power to determine all procedural rules for the holding of the arbitration including, but not limited to inspecting documents, examination of witnesses and any other matter relating to the conduct of the arbitration. The arbitrators shall have no authority to award punitive damages, exemplary damages, attorneys’ fees or costs.

 

Page 15 of 39

 

 

US Alliance Life and Security

Draft Reinsurance Agreement

 

The arbitrators shall interpret this Agreement as an honorable engagement and not merely as a legal obligation; they are relieved of all judicial formalities and may abstain from following the strict rules of law.

 

Each Party shall bear the expense of its own arbitrator, and shall jointly and equally bear with the other the expense of the third arbitrator and the arbitration. In the event that the two arbitrators are chosen by one Party, as provided above, the expense of the arbitrators and the arbitration shall be divided equally between the two Parties.

 

The decision, in writing, of the majority of the arbitrators, shall be final and binding upon both Parties. Judgment may be entered upon the final decision of the arbitrators in any court having jurisdiction.

Article 9

CONFIDENTIALITY

 

The Company and the Reinsurer agree that Customer and Proprietary Information shall be treated as confidential. Customer Information includes, but is not limited to, medical, financial, and other personal information about proposed, current, and former policy owners, insureds, applicants, and beneficiaries of policies issued by the Company. Proprietary Information includes, but is not limited to, business plans and trade secrets, mortality and lapse studies, underwriting manuals and guidelines, applications and contract forms and the specific terms and conditions of this Agreement.

 

Customer and Proprietary Information shall not include information that:

  1. is or becomes available to the general public through no fault of the Party receiving the Customer and Proprietary Information (the “Recipient”);
 

2.

.is independently developed by the Recipient;

 

3.

.is acquired by the Recipient from a third party not covered by a confidentiality agreement; or

 

4.

.is disclosed under a court order, law or regulation.

 

The Parties shall not disclose such information to any other parties unless agreed to in writing, except as necessary for retrocession purposes, as requested by external auditors, as required by court order, or as required or allowed by law or regulation.

 

The Company acknowledges that the Reinsurer can aggregate data with other companies reinsured with the Reinsurer as long as the data cannot be identified as belonging to the Company.

Article 10

ERRORS AND OMISSIONS

 

If through unintentional error, oversight, omission, or misunderstanding (collectively referred to as “errors”), the Reinsurer or the Company fails to comply with the terms of this Agreement and if, upon discovery of the error by either Party, the other Party is promptly notified, each thereupon shall be restored to the position it would have occupied if the error had not occurred, including interest.

 

If it is not possible to restore each Party to the position it would have occupied if the error had not occurred, the Parties shall endeavor in good faith to promptly resolve the situation in a manner that is fair and reasonable, and most closely approximates the intent of the Parties as evidenced by this Agreement.

 

However, the Reinsurer shall not provide reinsurance for policies that do not satisfy the parameters of this Agreement, nor shall the Reinsurer be responsible for negligent or deliberate acts or for repetitive errors in administration by the Company. If either Party discovers that the Company has failed to cede reinsurance as provided in this Agreement, or failed to comply with its reporting requirements, the Reinsurer may require the Company to audit its records for similar errors and to take actions necessary to avoid similar errors in the future.

This schedule of calculations shall be accompanied by a statement signed by an officer of the Company stating that the Company shall report such net consideration in its tax return for the preceding calendar year.

 

 

6.

The Reinsurer may contest such calculation by providing an alternative calculation to the Company in writing within thirty (30) days of the Reinsurer’s receipt of the Company’s calculation.
