Certified Reinsurers

The information contained in the following list will be refreshed as changes are made. It is possible that additions or deletions that have been properly filed are not included in today's version of the list. The status of a Certified Reinsurer can be confirmed by contacting Kim Rankin; Director Bureau of Company Licensing and Financial Analysis, Pennsylvania Insurance Department, 1345 Strawberry Square, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17120, telephone: 717.783.6409, Fax: 717.787.8557, or email.
At its November 2011 Fall Annual Meeting, the NAIC adopted amendments to its Model Credit for Reinsurance Law which allow for reduced collateral for reinsurers that are financially solvent and licensed in a jurisdiction that has a well-defined regulatory framework. Pennsylvania adopted these changes via Act 136, effective on July 5, 2012. Act 136 amended 40 P.S. §442.1 to provide the commissioner the authority to “certify” reinsurers so that ceding insurers may receive credit for reinsurance ceded to duly certified reinsurers. On June 29, 2013, the amendments to chapters 161 and 163 of the department’s regulations which outline in detail the procedures to become a certified reinsurer became effective.
The department is accepting applications to become a certified reinsurer. The department is working in coordination with the NAIC’s Reinsurance Task Force on the designation of qualified jurisdictions and with the Reinsurance Financial Analysis Working Group to allow “passporting” of companies that have been certified in another state.
