AS 28.20.120. Agreements For Payment of Damages.

(a) Two or more persons involved in or affected by an accident as described in AS 28.20.050 may at any time enter into a written agreement for the payment of an agreed amount with respect to their claims because of bodily injury, death, or property damage arising from the accident. The agreement may provide for payment in installments. The parties may file a signed copy of the agreement with the department.

(b) If proof of financial responsibility is provided and to the extent provided by the written agreement filed with it, the department may not require the deposit of security and shall terminate a previous order of suspension, or if security was deposited, the department shall immediately return the security to the depositor or the personal representative of the depositor.

(c) If there is a default in a payment under the agreement, upon notice of default the department shall take action suspending the license of the person in default as is appropriate in case of failure of the person to deposit security when required under this chapter.

(d) The suspension remains in effect and the license may not be restored until

(1) security is deposited as required under this chapter in the amount the department determines; or

(2) when, following default and suspension, the person in default pays the balance of the agreed amount; or

(3) one year elapses following the effective date of the suspension and evidence satisfactory to the department is filed with it that during the period no action at law upon the agreement is pending.
