Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously disclosed, on June 3, 2013, Prudential Financial, Inc. (“Prudential Financial”), the ultimate parent of Pruco Life Insurance Company of New Jersey (the “Company”), received notice of a proposed determination by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (the “Council”) that Prudential Financial should be subject to stricter prudential regulatory standards and supervision by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (as a “Covered Company”) pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. On July 2, 2013, Prudential Financial provided notice to the Council requesting nonpublic written and oral evidentiary hearings before the Council to contest the Council’s proposed determination. According to the regulations, the Council will schedule the evidentiary hearing within 30 days after Prudential Financial’s request and will make a final determination on Prudential Financial’s status as a Covered Company within 60 days after the hearing.

If Prudential Financial is designated by the Council as a Covered Company, it could be subject to stricter prudential standards under the Dodd-Frank Act, which may include requirements regarding risk-based capital and leverage, liquidity, stress-testing, overall risk management, resolution plans, early remediation, and credit concentration; and may also include additional standards regarding capital, public disclosure, short-term debt limits, and other related subjects as appropriate. See “Business—Regulation” and “Risk Factors” included in the Company’s 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K for more information regarding the potential impact of the Dodd-Frank Act on the Company, including as a result of these stricter prudential standards.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
