|3.||The specific criteria used to determine the Additional Actuarial Reserves for asset adequacy shall be consistent with the minimum requirements of the State of New York, as may be amended from time to time.|
(o) The Reinsurer may, at its sole discretion, substitute as security a letter of credit issued for the benefit of the Company that meets the requirements of 11 NYCRR 79 (Regulation 133) (the Letter of Credit).
The Reinsurer shall be the applicant for and provide a Letter of Credit to Company, issued by a qualified bank as defined in Regulation 133, specifying the recoverables and/or reserves are covered, and otherwise meeting all of the qualifications and required conditions contained in Regulation 133.

(iii) the amount of reinsurance recoverables permitted in accordance with 11 NYCRR 125.5 (Regulation 20)
