44-4835. Filing of claims.(1) Proof of all claims shall be filed with the liquidator in the form required by section 44-4836 on or before the last day for filing specified in the notice required under section 44-4822, except that proof of claims for cash surrender values or other investment values in life insurance and annuities need not be filed unless the liquidator expressly so requires.(2) The liquidator may permit a claimant making a late filing to share in distributions, whether past or future, as if he or she were not late, to the extent that any such payment will not prejudice the orderly administration of the liquidation, under the following circumstances:(a) The existence of the claim was not known to the claimant and he or she filed his or her claim as promptly thereafter as reasonably possible after learning of it;(b) A transfer to a creditor was avoided under sections 44-4826 to 44-4828 or was voluntarily surrendered under section 44-4829 and the filing satisfies the conditions of such section; or(c) The valuation under section 44-4841 of security held by a secured creditor shows a deficiency, which is filed within thirty days after the valuation.(3) The liquidator shall permit late filing claims to share in distributions, whether past or future, as if they were not late if such claims are claims of a guaranty association or foreign guaranty association for reimbursement of covered claims paid or expenses incurred, or both, subsequent to the last day for filing when such payments were made and expenses incurred as provided by law.(4) The liquidator may consider any claim filed late which is not covered by subsection (2) of this section and permit it to receive distributions which are subsequently declared on any claims of the same or lower priority if the payment does not prejudice the orderly administration of the liquidation. The late-filing claimant shall receive at each distribution the same percentage of the amount allowed on his or her claim as is then being paid to claimants of any lower priority. This shall continue until his or her claim has been paid in full. SourceLaws 1989, LB 319, § 35.
