(a) If the assets of a reciprocal insurer are at any time insufficient to discharge its liabilities, other than a liability on account of funds contributed by the attorney-in-fact or others, and to maintain the required surplus, its attorney-in-fact shall immediately make up the deficiency or levy an assessment upon the subscribers for the amount needed to make up the deficiency;  but subject to the limitation set out in the subscriber's agreement.

(b) If the attorney-in-fact fails to make up the deficiency or to make the assessment within 30 days after the director orders the attorney-in-fact to do so, or if the deficiency is not fully made up within 60 days after the date the assessment was made, the insurer shall be considered insolvent and shall be proceeded against as authorized by this title.

(c) If liquidation of an insurer is ordered, an assessment shall be levied upon the subscriber for an amount, subject to limits as provided by this chapter, that the director determines to be necessary to discharge all liabilities of the insurer, exclusive of any funds contributed by the attorney-in-fact or other persons, but including the reasonable cost of the liquidation.

(d) If liquidation of a domestic reciprocal insurer is ordered, the receiver appointed under the order has a right to recover on behalf of the reciprocal insurer a payment in the form of a bonus, termination settlement, or extraordinary lump-sum compensation adjustment made by the reciprocal insurer or its subscribers to the attorney-in-fact if the distribution or payment is made during the 12 months preceding the order of liquidation, unless it can be shown that the payment was lawful and reasonable and that the reciprocal insurer did not know and, using due diligence, could not have known that the distribution might adversely affect the ability of the reciprocal insurer to fulfill its subscriber's contractual obligation.
