Our Story

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) provides expertise, data, and analysis for insurance commissioners to effectively regulate the industry and protect consumers. Founded in 1871, the U.S. standard-setting organization is governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories to coordinate regulation of multistate insurers.

Our Focus: Our Members and our Mission

Our members are state insurance regulators from diverse backgrounds—but are united in their shared commitment to set standards and ensure fair, competitive, and healthy insurance markets to protect consumers. The singular mission of the NAIC is to support our members in these noble causes.

Constantly Evolving and Adapting

In addition to safeguarding the insurance sector, we also provide consumer protection and education, data collection and analysis, technology, financial assessments and reporting, and licensing and testing.

Thinking Nationally, Acting Locally

Our state-based system brings regulators together and empowers them to act in the best interests of the people in their states. At the same time, we also enable commissioners to collaborate and learn from each other, while applying resources to individual states’ needs.

Unwavering Commitment to Protection

Insurance is a promise to be there when people need protection most. We provide training and accreditation programs to regulators at all levels and education for consumers.

Our Priorities

Our primary regulatory priorities are decided by our members, who continue to work on these crucial priorities and other important issues impacting consumers and the industry throughout the year.
