What about a company requesting accreditation with over $20,000,000 in surplus?
The Commissioner has 120 days in which to disapprove the request. The company will receive an acknowledgement of the filing within 2 weeks of the receipt and a letter either approving a company's accreditation through August 31 of that year or denying its request prior to the expiration of the 120 time period.

NOTE: If the company has less than $20,000,000 in surplus, the Commissioner is not required to respond within 120 days.

OPRA is a state law that was enacted to give the public greater access to government records maintained by public agencies in New Jersey.
