A regulator will allow bond insurer MBIA Inc. to make a payment on surplus notes issued in 2008, the company said.

Last Tuesday MBIA Inc. announced that the New York State Department of Financial Services had not approved the payment owed by MBIA Inc.'s subsidiary MBIA Insurance Corp to holders of the notes. The payments were due Monday on 14% fixed-to-floating rate surplus notes that mature in 2033. As a result, MBIA submitted a form to the Securities and Exchange Commission announcing that it had not received approval of the payments within five business days of the payment due date, following terms of the Fiscal Agency Agreement.
