F.S. 625.58
625.58 Excess and deficit deposits.
(1) If securities or assets deposited by an insurer under this part are subject to material fluctuations in market value, the office or department may, in its discretion, require the insurer to deposit and maintain on deposit additional securities or assets in an amount as may be reasonably necessary to assure that the deposit will at all times have a market value of not less than the amount specified under or pursuant to the law by which the deposit is required.
(2) The insurer is responsible at all times for having deposited with, or pledged to, if custodial arrangements are used, the department eligible securities which have a market value of not less than the amount specified pursuant to the law by which the deposit is required. If for any reason the market value of assets and securities of an insurer held on deposit in this state under this code falls below the amount required, the insurer shall promptly deposit other or additional assets or securities eligible for deposit sufficient to cure such deficiency. If the insurer has failed to cure the deficiency within 30 days after receipt of notice thereof by registered or certified mail from the office, the office shall revoke the insurer’s certificate of authority or may take such other administrative action as provided by law.
(3) An insurer may at its option deposit assets or securities in an amount exceeding its deposit required or otherwise permitted under this code by not more than 3 times the amount of the required or permitted deposit for the purpose of satisfying the office that the insurer’s obligations in this state will be met. During the solvency of the insurer, the amount of any excess or a portion thereof shall be released to the insurer if the office is satisfied that the insurer’s obligations in this state will be met. During the insolvency of the insurer, the amount of any excess deposit shall be released only as provided in s. 625.62.
