(1) Written notice. Every person who receives notice in the form prescribed in KRS 304.33-250 that an insurer for which he has acted as agent is the subject of a liquidation order
shall as soon as practicable give notice of the liquidation order. The notice shall be sent by first-class mail to the last address contained in the
agent's records to each policyholder or other person named in any policy issued through
the agent by the company, if he has a record of the address of the policyholder or
other person. A policy shall be deemed issued through an agent if the agent has a property interest
in the expiration of the policy; or if the agent has had in his possession a copy
of the declarations of the policy at any time during the life of the policy, except
where the ownership of the expiration of the policy has been transferred to another. The written notice shall include the name and address of the insurer, the name and
address of the agent, identification of the policy impaired, and the nature of the
impairment under KRS 304.33-210. Notice by a general agent shall satisfy the notice requirement for any agents under
contract to him.
(2) Oral notice. So far as practicable, every insurance agent subject to subsection (1) of this section
shall give immediate oral notice, by telephone or otherwise, of the liquidation order
to the same persons to whom he is obligated to give written notice. The oral notice shall include substantially the same information as the written

under KRS 304.33-240(6), transfer all assets of the insurer in possession of the agent as of the date of
liquidation or any time thereafter to the liquidator. If there is any dispute as to whether assets which an agent is holding are assets
of the insurer, the agent shall petition the court for an order determining the ownership
