Tex. Ins. Code Section 493.1033
Credit Allowed for Certain Certified Reinsurers


Credit shall be allowed when the reinsurance is ceded to an assuming insurer that:


is certified by the commissioner as a reinsurer in this state; and


secures its obligations in accordance with the requirements of this section and Sections 493.1034-493.1038.


To be eligible for certification, the assuming insurer must:


be domiciled and licensed to transact insurance or reinsurance in a jurisdiction listed as qualified on the list published by the commissioner under Section 493.1035 (Qualified Jurisdictions);


maintain minimum capital and surplus in an amount required by the commissioner by rule;


maintain a financial strength rating from not fewer than two rating agencies determined to be acceptable in accordance with rules adopted by the commissioner;


agree to submit to the jurisdiction of any court of competent jurisdiction in any state of the United States;


appoint the commissioner as its agent for service of process in this state;


provide security for 100 percent of the assuming insurer’s liabilities for reinsurance ceded by United States ceding insurers if the assuming insurer resists enforcement of a final judgment of a court of the United States;


meet application information filing requirements, as established by the commissioner by rule, for the initial application for certification and on an ongoing basis; and


satisfy any other requirements for certification required by the commissioner by rule.


In determining eligibility for certification under Subsection (b), the commissioner may defer to the certification granted and financial strength rating assigned by a National Association of Insurance Commissioners accredited jurisdiction.


Credit for reinsurance under this section applies only to a reinsurance contract entered into or renewed on or after the effective date of the certification of the assuming insurer.
