The Financial Policy and Legislation Team in the Government Relations Office is the point of contact for the NAIC and state insurance departments with Congress and the federal government on financial (non-health) insurance issues.
The Financial Team monitors congressional and federal regulatory interest and action on matters related to financial (non-health) insurance supervision and products; prepares and circulates legislative summaries and reports to insurance commissioners and state departments; recommends and implements legislative and regulatory strategies; prepares testimony, correspondence and briefing materials; and facilitates communication with and technical assistance to Congress and the federal agencies to advance and preserve state insurance supervision and consumer protections.
The Financial Team coordinates NAIC interactions with state government associations and groups, including the National Governors Association (NGA), the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), and the National Council of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL).
