NAIFA is actively involved with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) and National Council of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL), participating in their meetings and calls. NAIFA experts provide testimony, letters, and assistance drafting model legislation and regulations, as well as other resources. They also serve on the National Insurance Producers Registry, an affiliate of the NAIC that addresses licensing matters, and the Industry Education Council to NCOIL.
This input is used by state insurance commissioners and legislators BEFORE proposals are even made. The model laws and rules are used across the country, impacting the business practices of producers and the financial wellbeing of consumers.
When the NAIC or NCOIL produces a model policy with NAIFA's backing, our association's state advocacy teams and grassroots network work to have the model adopted by state governments.
