1 in the proportion that the net direct written premiums of

2 the member insurer for the preceding calendar year on

3 the kinds of insurance in the account bears to the net direct

4 written premiums of all member insurers for the preceding

5 calendar year on the kinds of insurance in the account.

6 Each member insurer shall be notified of the assessment not

7 later than thirty days before it is due. No member insurer

8

may be assessed in any year on any account an amount

9 greater than 2 per centum of that member insurer's net

10 direct written premiums for the preceding calendar year on

11 the kinds of insurance in the account. If the maximum assess

12 ment, together with the other assets of the Association in

13 any account, does not provide in any one year in any ac

14 count an amount sufficient to make all necessary payments

15 from that account, the funds available shall be prorated and

16 the unpaid portion shall be paid as soon thereafter as funds 17 become available. The Association may exempt or defer,

18 in whole or in part, the assessment of any member insurer,

19 if the assessment would cause the member insurer's finan

20 cial statement to reflect amounts of capital or surplus less

21 than the minimum amounts required for a certificate of

22 authority by any jurisdiction in which the member insurer

23 is authorized to transact insurance. Each member insurer

24 may set off against any assessment, authorized payments

25 made on covered claims and expenses incurred in the pay
