The valuation shall be done in accordance with the standards specified in § 58-37A-25. The valuation and underlying data shall be certified by a qualified actuary or, at the expense of the society, verified by the actuary of the insurance regulatory agency of the state of domicile of the society.

A society neglecting to file the annual statement in the form and within the time provided by this section shall forfeit one hundred dollars for each day during which the neglect continues, and, upon notice by the director to that effect, its authority to do business in this state shall cease while the default continues.
