Effective June 1, 2022, reinsurers may apply for status as a reciprocal jurisdiction reinsurer. This allows a domestic ceding company to eliminate collateral requirements and still take full credit for reinsurance recoverables from a reciprocal jurisdiction reinsurer under ch. Ins 52, Wis. Adm. Code, for those contracts entered into or renewed after the reinsurer has obtained reciprocal status. This rule does not prohibit parties to a reinsurance agreement from agreeing to provisions establishing collateral requirements which exceed the minimum requirements.
This page documents the process for filing new and renewal applications and includes a listing of approved reciprocal jurisdiction reinsurers.
Questions concerning the initial or renewal application process for reciprocal jurisdiction reinsurers may be directed to Levi Olson at (608) 264-8125 or
