FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NAIC RELEASES 2012 INSURANCE DEPARTMENT RESOURCES REPORT - VOLUME ONE
    Includes Key Statistics on State Insurance Department
    Resources and Regulatory Activities

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 7, 2013) The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) today released the first volume of the 26th edition of the Insurance Department Resources Report (IDRR), which outlines the resources utilized by state insurance departments to monitor marketplace solvency and protect consumers. As well as being a key assessment tool for state insurance departments, the IDRR is a helpful reference for state legislators, financial regulators and public policymakers.
   
This volume of the IDRR contains information, by state, on the number of departmental staff and their functions, annual budgets, revenue flows, the number of insurers and insurance producers, and the number of consumer inquiries and complaints.
   
Developed through an extensive survey of the NAIC member states, Volume One of the IDRR is organized into five sections: Staffing; Budget and Funding; Examination and Oversight; Insurance Producers; and Consumer Services and Antifraud.
   
Some key findings in Volume One include:

  • California reported the largest 2013 budget, which is $31.3 million greater than the second-largest 2014 budget (New York).
  • Total taxes collected increased by 1.4 percent.
  • There were 6,115 domestic U.S. insurers in 2012.
  • State insurance departments received more than 270,000 official complaints and 2.3 million inquiries.

The second volume of the IDRR, available in August 2013, will primarily include information on premium volume by type and by state.  
   
A hard copy of the first volume of the 2012 Insurance Department Resources Report - Volume One can be ordered from the NAIC Store.
