Captive Insurance Company Act Amended in Oklahoma

Oklahoma State Flag
July 14, 2015

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has signed Senate Bill 455, which includes a number of changes to the Oklahoma Captive Insurance Company Act.

The Act:

  • Expands the types of entities that can be the sponsor of a sponsored captive to include a holding company, a trust, or other type of organization subject to the approval of the insurance commissioner

  • Includes a new provision that permits any insurer that holds a current license in another state to redomesticate by making application and complying with Oklahoma’s captive licensing requirements and obtaining regulatory approval of the insurer's current domicile

  • Gives the insurance commissioner discretion to require the annual filing of an actuarial opinion

  • Provides that, with the exception of unimpaired paid-in capital, captives are not subject to any restrictions on allowable investments unless an investment threatens the liquidity of the captive

  • Adds a provision that makes two or more protected cells of a captive under common ownership or control subject to taxations as though they were a single cell

  • Makes a number of other changes to clean up the captive statutes

Oklahoma licensed 37 captives in 2014 and had a total captive count of 47 at the end of 2014.
