Ins. Code Section 443.251
Filing of Claims
(a)Except as provided by this subsection, proof of all claims must be filed with the liquidator in the form required by Section 443.252 on or before the last day for filing specified in the notice required under Section 443.155, which date may not be later than 18 months after entry of the order of liquidation, unless the receivership court, for good cause shown, extends the time, except that proofs of claims for cash surrender values or other investment values in life insurance and annuities and for any other policies insuring the lives of persons need not be filed unless the liquidator expressly so requires. The receivership court, only upon application of the liquidator, may allow alternative procedures and requirements for the filing of proofs of claim or for allowing or proving claims. Upon application, if the receivership court dispenses with the requirements of filing a proof of claim by a person or a class or group of persons, a proof of claim for the person, class, or group is deemed to have been filed for all purposes, except that the receivership court’s waiver of proof of claim requirements does not impact guaranty association proof of claim filing requirements or coverage determinations to the extent the guaranty fund statute or filing requirements are inconsistent with the receivership court’s waiver of proof.
(b)The liquidator shall permit a claimant that makes a late filing to share ratably in distributions, whether past or future, as if the claim were not filed late, to the extent that the payment will not prejudice the orderly administration of the liquidation, under the following circumstances:
(1)the eligibility to file a proof of claim was not known to the claimant, and the claimant filed a proof of claim not later than the 90th day after the date of first learning of the eligibility;
(2)a transfer to a creditor was avoided under Section 443.202, 443.203, 443.204, or 443.206, or was voluntarily surrendered under Section 443.208, and the filing satisfies the conditions of Section 443.208; or
(3)the valuation under Section 443.260, of security held by a secured creditor shows a deficiency, and the claim for the deficiency is filed not later than the 30th day after the valuation.
(c)The liquidator may petition the receivership court to set a date before which all late claims under Subsection (b) must be filed.
(d)The liquidator shall permit guaranty associations to file claims late and to receive a ratable share of distributions, whether past or future, as if the claims were not late.
