NAIC DEBUTS WEB SITE REDESIGN
Site Includes Reorganized Format, Enhanced
WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 7, 2009) - The National
Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) announces the launch
of a newly redesigned Web site. The more modern, streamlined format
enhances the user experience, providing greater access to
information for regulators, consumers and industry.
"The updated NAIC Web site reflects our continued commitment to
providing information and resources that are readily available to
the thousands of visitors to our site each day," said Therese M.
(Terri) Vaughan, Ph.D., NAIC Chief Executive Officer. "The new site
is cleaner and easier to navigate without sacrificing the quality of
content you can expect to find on the NAIC Web site. In addition,
the development of the new Center for Insurance Policy and Research
(CIPR) provided us with an opportunity to create a site focused on
communicating our research and public policy activities."
The addition of the CIPR site is a prominent feature of the
redesign. Content from the research and government relations
divisions of the NAIC has been moved to the CIPR site to allow for
ease of use and to serve as a central point of information
gathering. The CIPR site will house reference documents, including
issue briefs, speeches and Congressional testimony. State and
national insurance data will also be available on the new site.
Another element of the redesigned site is the NAIC's Google
search application. This new tool, which provides a substantial cost
savings to the organization, will offer users a more refined and
intuitive search experience.
Insure U, the NAIC's consumer education program, also underwent
a redesign earlier this summer. Information that was previously
featured on the NAIC's Consumer page has been consolidated and moved
into the Insure U curriculum, presented in an easy-to-find format.
The Insure U library now stores information about auto, health,
homeowners and life insurance and includes guides on all lines of
insurance in downloadable formats. The new Insure U Web site still
contains insurance information according to specific life situations
with special sections for long-term care insurance, disaster
preparedness and frequently asked questions regarding AIG.
