Pennsylvania Insurance Department Working Remotely

Based on internal communication that was received from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PID), Arnett Carbis Toothman LLP (ACT) noted the following relative to the PID working remotely. Outlined below is ACT’s understanding of the impact relative to the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
To facilitate the operations of the PID and to mitigate any disruption to insurance companies and other licensees, the Office of Corporate & Financial Regulation will accept electronic filings. The electronic filings will be accepted for a limited time. Filings should be forwarded, via email, to the assigned financial analyst. A copy of the filing should also be forwarded to the supervisor and Kim Rankin (krankin@pa.gov).  Microsoft Word, Excel, or Adobe PDF are all acceptable formats.
 
If a filing fee is to accompany a particular filing, a copy of the check must be included with the electronic filing. The hard copy of the original filing and the filing fee should be mailed to Financial Analysis Division, PA Insurance Department, 1345 Strawberry Square, Harrisburg, PA 17120.
 
At this moment, there is not a specific time frame or date that the PID will stop accepting electronic filings.
 
This may explain certain delays that Pennsylvania Continuing Care Retirement Communities have experienced since the COVID-19 pandemic, and will hopefully alleviate delays moving forward. 
Contact your ACT representative or email us at info@actcpas.com for any questions or concerns regarding this information.
