(c) The written certificate of designation shall be executed and certified and shall state the name and address of the authorized officer, agent or other person to whom legal documents or process shall be forwarded by the superintendent or deputy. In the event of any change in such designation, a new certificate shall be filed with the superintendent within 10 days of such change.
(d) Service of legal documents or process upon a purchasing group may be made at the offices of the department during normal and ordinary business hours, pursuant to the power of attorney executed by the purchasing group, by serving the superintendent, any deputy superintendent, or any salaried employee of the Department of Financial Services whom the superintendent designates for such purposes, with two copies thereof and a fee of $20.

(1) a copy of such documents or process shall be forwarded by the superintendent by mail, directed to the person last designated by such purchasing group, as shown by department records;
(2) the superintendent will keep a record noting the date of service of each legal document or process served under this section; and
(3) upon request made within 10 years of such service, the superintendent will issue a certificate under his seal certifying receipt of the legal documents or process, date of service, and receipt of the fee.
