(1) As provided in its articles of incorporation, a domestic stock insurer or domestic mutual insurer may issue any or all of its policies with or without participation in profits, savings, unabsorbed portions of premiums, or surplus;  may classify policies issued and risks insured on a participating and nonparticipating basis, and, subject to section 41-1933(3), Idaho Code, may determine the right to participate and the extent of participation of any class or classes of policies.  Any such classification or determination shall be reasonable.

(2) A life insurer may issue both participating and nonparticipating policies only if the right or absence of right to participate is reasonably related to the premium charged.

(3) No dividend, otherwise earned, shall be made contingent upon the payment of renewal premium on any policy;  except, that a participating life or disability insurance policy providing for participation at the end of the first or second policy year may provide that the dividend or dividends will be paid subject to payment of premium for the next ensuing year.
