|Edward Barrett||Vice President|
The Company issues fire and lightning policies in the State of Maine.
Balances at 12/31/04
|Premium Notes||$ 19,200|
The Company issues fire and lightning policies for a three-year period under an assessment plan and requires a promissory note for each policy. The amount of the note is set in the Company’s Bylaws and is always 8% of the insured amount. The Company charges a premium, which is also set in the Bylaws, and is always 10% of the promissory note.
The amount of insurance that the Company may write is limited by the Board of Directors and the Bureau of Insurance. In 2004, the Bureau of Insurance approved an increase from $7,500 to $10,000. The Company does not participate in any type of reinsurance program, however, the amount of risk retained by the Company is in compliance with the State of Maine’s prescribed percentage of surplus and outstanding notes.
