Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

215 ILCS 5/1703

    (215 ILCS 5/1703)
    (This Section may contain text from a Public Act with a delayed effective date)
    Sec. 1703. Purpose and intent. The purpose of this Article is to provide a mechanism for insurers to transfer or assume blocks of insurance business in an efficient and cost-effective manner that provides needed legal finality for such transfers in order to provide for improved operational and capital efficiency for insurance companies, while protecting the interests of the policyholders, reinsurers, and claimants of the subject business. This new process is intended to stimulate the economy by attracting segments of the insurance industry to this State, make this State an attractive home jurisdiction for insurance companies, encourage economic growth and increased investment in the financial services sector, and increase the availability of quality insurance industry jobs in this State. These purposes are accomplished by providing a basis and procedures for the transfer and statutory novation of policies from a transferring insurer to an assuming insurer by way of an insurance business transfer without the affirmative consent of policyholders or reinsureds, but with consideration of their interests. This Article establishes the requirements for notice and disclosure and standards and procedures for the approval of the transfer and novation by a court pursuant to an insurance business transfer plan. This Article does not limit or restrict other means of effecting a transfer or novation.
