Certificate Holder Semi-Annual Report

(Due within 45 days of the end of the reporting period)

Certificate Holders must file reports semi-annually, within 45 days of June 30th and December 31st for the two quarters just ended. Reports should be submitted for each Certificate Holder as well as each Branch Registrant. Reports are due August 14th and February 14th, annually. If a Certificate Holder fails to file the Semi-Annual report for two consecutive reporting periods, then Quarterly Reports will be required.

Beginning with the semi-annual reports due February 14, 2016, all semi-annual reports, must be accompanied by an annual statement of trust activity from the trustee(s) for each merchandise and services trust account for the preceding calendar year for each Certificate Holder or Branch Registrant. If the trustee(s) was changed during the reporting period, then a statement of trust activities from the new trustee as well as the old trustee should be submitted. Likewise, a policy listing showing the policy activity for the preceding calendar year should be included from each insurer used by the Certificate Holder and/or Branch Registrant to fund post-law preneed contracts. Finally, any Certificate Holders and/or Branch Registrants funding preneed with a Letter of Credit or Surety Bond should submit a detail listing of the outstanding contract liability under each Letter of Credit or Surety Bond. Statements are required to be submitted electronically. A number of insurers and trustees have agreed to electronically submit the required policy listings and trust statements on behalf of their clients. See the Documentation section below for details regarding submitting documentation as well as a list of insurers and trustees which have provided written notice to the Department that they will electronically submit the required documentation on behalf of their clients.

The Certificate Holder should submit the Certificate Holder – Semi-Annual Report and Branch Registrant – Semi-Annual Reports for any of its Branch Registrants through ALDOI - Preneed Online. Review the Semi-Annual Report Instructions, which includes detailed step-by-step completion instructions for the Semi-Annual Report.

Inactive - Annual Report

If a Certificate Holder becomes inactive for any reason (surrender, expiration, etc.) then the Inactive Certificate Holder – Annual Report must be filed annually, so long as the Inactive Certificate Holder has at least one unfulfilled preneed contract. If the Inactive Certificate Holder has ever funded preneed contracts by trust and has one or more trust funded contracts outstanding/unfulfilled in the reporting year, then the Inactive Certificate Holder must file a statement of trust activities for each merchandise and services trust for the reporting year (January 1st – December 31st) with the Inactive Certificate Holder – Annual Report. The report and the statement from the trustee(s) regarding all trust activities (if applicable) is due within 90 days of the end of the reporting period, January 1st – December 31st (due April 1st). If the Certificate Holder has contracts funded by insurance, then a detailed statement from the insurer showing policy activity must accompany the report. Statements are required to be submitted electronically. See the Documentation section below for more details.

Inactive – Annual Reports must be submitted online through ALDOI - Preneed Online.

Endowment Care Cemetery Trust Fund Report

Effective with the 2016 Annual Report of Endowment Care, due in 2017, reports must be filed electronically through ALDOI - Preneed Online.

We tentatively expect the online reporting form to be available May 1, 2017. Once available, the online form will be available for 30 days. Reports submitted within the thirty day period will be deemed to comply with the law. Please check back for updates and filing instructions closer to May 1st.
