REDOMESTICATION UCAA APPLICATIONS (Foreign Insurer Redomesticating to Become Arizona Domestic Insurer)

Foreign insurers seeking domestication to Arizona should file a UCAA Primary application. The instructions and forms can be found at http://www.naic.org/industry_ucaa.htm.

Do the following:

  1. Check name availability with Cary Cook, Chief Financial Compliance Officer, at [email protected].
  2. Draft the Articles of Incorporation to comply with A.R.S. §§ 10-202 and 20-705.  If the Articles provide that the capital stock will be non-assessable, the qualifying statement “except as provided by Article 14, Section 11 of the Constitution of the State of Arizona” must be included in the Articles.
