NAIC Initiates 2024 Budget Approval Process

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) has released its proposed 2024 budget following months of development by NAIC officers, the NAIC Internal Administration (EX1) Subcommittee, and the NAIC Executive (EX) Committee, as well as input from NAIC staff. 

“The 2024 budget equips the NAIC to continue its support and enhance the services provided to the nation’s chief insurance regulators,” said Andrew N. Mais, NAIC President-Elect and Commissioner of the Connecticut Insurance Department. “The business of insurance and insurance regulation is evolving at a rate never seen. Whether through the introduction of emerging technologies or responding to challenges regarding the frequency of catastrophic losses, this budget will position the NAIC to further assist regulators in their invaluable efforts. By investing additional resources to enhance data availability, increase technical education, and improve various system infrastructures, the NAIC will remain in a strong position to support regulators’ mission of ensuring insurance markets remain solvent and consumers are protected.”

The NAIC's proposed 2024 budget includes total revenues (including investment income) of $157.3 million and total expenses of $158.4 million, which represents a 6.5% increase in revenues and a 5.2% increase in expenses from the 2023 budget.
