(1) File with the commissioner its charter and bylaws for approval;  and

(2) File with the commissioner a statement in a form and with supporting data and proof that the commissioner may require, showing that the entire capital including paid-in surplus or expense fund has been fully paid in lawful money unconditionally and that the funds representing the capital and, as the case may be, paid-in surplus or expense fund less sums spent with the approval of the commissioner for organization are on hand, and that it has acquired a commitment for the insurance of deposit accounts as provided in this chapter.

(b) ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATE OF AUTHORITY.  If the commissioner finds that the proposed association has in good faith complied with all the requirements of law, the commissioner shall approve the issuance of a certificate of authority and shall within thirty (30) days after the filing of the statement specified in this section, issue, in triplicate, a certificate of authority to transact a general savings and loan business.  The commissioner shall then transmit a copy of the charter and the certificate of authority, together with all required supporting documents, to the secretary of state for filing as provided under the Tennessee Business Corporation Act, compiled in title 48, chapters 11-27.  Upon filing by the secretary of state, the existence of the association shall begin.  Until that time, and except for the limited activities of incorporators and officers during the period of interim organization under this chapter, any proposed association shall not engage in any savings and loan business.
