State regulators have recently updated the State Disaster Response Plan in order to create a template that departments of insurance (DOIs) can use when assisting consumers before, during and after disasters. The document details how a DOI can work with other agencies to assist consumers, including federal agencies, state and local agencies, the NAIC and other state DOIs. In addition, the NAIC is creating a disaster program, which will provide a one-stop shop for regulators that will include sample bulletins, publications to help state DOIs educate consumers about catastrophic events, and various other interactive tools and podcasts for regulators. The NAIC envisions a website where state regulators can access information and tools prior to a disaster to be better able to help protect citizens. Though this project is in its infancy, we hope that by sharing these materials during the Insurance Summit, regulators will begin contributing to the project to improve its effectiveness.
