FDIC Proposes Rule Regarding Treatment of Mutual Insurance Holding Companies in Liquidation

By | December 13, 2011

The FDIC is proposing a rule that provides for the treatment of a mutual insurance holding company as an insurance company for the purpose of Section 203(e) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.  The proposed rule clarifies that the liquidation and rehabilitation of a covered financial company that is a mutual insurance holding company will be conducted in the same manner as an insurance company. The proposed rule is intended to harmonize the treatment of mutual insurance holding companies under Section 203(e) of the Dodd-Frank Act with the treatment of such companies under state insolvency regimes.
