“Our system is constantly evolving, and there will always be challenges. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so we’re committed to proactively meeting challenges head-on with responses that reflect the diversity of our membership.” said NAIC CEO Sen. Ben Nelson.

NAIC Submits Testimony on FSOC Nonbanks Designations Process
Monica J. Lindeen
NAIC President and State Auditor Montana Office of the Commissioner of Securities & Insurance Monica J. Lindeen
NAIC President and Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance
The NAIC submitted testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. The letter outlined regulators’ concerns with the Financial Stability Council’s (FSOC) process for designating nonbank financial firms as systemically important financial institutions. The NAIC raised concerns regarding FSOC’s understanding of insurance and its regulation, the failure of FSOC to provide an “exit ramp” for designation that would reduce risks to the financial system, and the lack of involvement of state insurance regulators in FSOC deliberations.

NAIC Supports Policyholder Protection Act
Statement from Monica Lindeen, NAIC President and Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance
Members of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners strongly support the Policyholder Protection Act and we thank Senators David Vitter and Jon Tester and Congressmen Bill Posey and Brad Sherman for introducing this critical bipartisan legislation. This measure clarifies insurance regulators' authority to protect insurance consumers, regardless of a company's organizational structure or financial circumstance. As financial firms become more complex, it is essential that state insurance regulators continue to have the ability to specifically protect insurance-related assets in order to pay claims when they come due.

“Events like this underscore the need for consumers to take immediate and ongoing action to protect personal information like passwords to bank accounts, credit card companies, health insurance accounts and any electronic database that contains sensitive, personal information,” said NAIC President and Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance Monica J. Lindeen.
