NAIC Members Encourage Insurance Companies to Work with Policyholders Affected by the Federal Government Shutdown

Statement from NAIC

Insurance consumers impacted by the federal government shutdown could face temporary financial hardships and may be unable to pay insurance premiums in a timely manner. The NAIC encourages insurance companies to exercise judicious efforts to assist these policyholders and work with them to make sure that their insurance policy does not lapse. 

Affected policyholders who are unable to make timely premium payments due to the federal government shutdown should contact their insurance company as soon as possible.
