A. The purpose of the safety fund is to provide for the payment of covered claims in the event the assessment limit specified in subsection E of § 38.2-1705 is reached.
B. In the event the assets of the safety fund are needed to pay covered claims, these assets shall be loaned to the respective account listed in subsection A of § 38.2-1702. This loan shall be the general obligation of the Association members and shall be evidenced by an agreement approved by the Commission.
C. Interest on this loan shall be compounded quarterly and be based upon the average ninety-day treasury bill rate for the most recently completed calendar quarter as published in the Federal Reserve Bulletin. This rate will be updated quarterly in order to conform with market rates of interest.
D. This loan shall be repaid by levying assessments against the members for the account on whose behalf the loan was negotiated. Unless otherwise approved by the Commission, the loan shall be repaid within six months of its issuance. This assessment in conjunction with any other assessments levied, shall not exceed the limit specified in subsection E of § 38.2-1705.
E. Subject to the approval of the Commission assets of the safety fund may be loaned to any account in subsection A of § 38.2-1702 even though the maximum assessment in subsection E of § 38.2-1705 has not been levied if the directors of the Association determine that this action will minimize the cost to the Association in paying covered claims.
F. Excess safety fund assets set forth in subsection D of § 38.2-1718 may be used to pay the Association’s covered claims without the members incurring a liability to repay the safety fund.
