This office has completed a change in s. Ins 50.30, Wis. Adm. Code, which will be published in January 2006.

The revised regulation will apply to annual statements filed for 2005. The specific requirements for preparing the AOS are included in the National Association of Insurance Commissioners Annual Statement Instructions. Wisconsin-domiciled property and casualty insurers are required to file the AOS with this office by March 15. This office will keep the information in the AOS confidential as specified in the regulation. To help ensure that it is kept confidential, the AOS should be submitted in a separate envelope clearly marked "Actuarial Opinion Summary - Confidential," and sent to:
