Annual Convention Blank

DEFINITION of 'Annual Convention Blank'

The annual report that insurance carriers must file with the state insurance commissioner. This report will outline the carrier's current reserves, employees making over $40,000 a year, expenses and assets, among other things. The annual convention blank must be filed in order to show that a carrier is financially capable of doing business within the state.

BREAKING DOWN 'Annual Convention Blank'

Annual convention blanks must be filed with the commissioner of each state in which a carrier transacts business. Bascially, this form allows the state to determine whether or not the insurance company has adequate reserves to pay out benefit payments as they come due.
