National Association of Insurance Commissioners - NAIC

A nationwide organization whose main responsibility is to protect the interests of insurance consumers. Some of the main objectives of the NAIC are to provide support to insurance regulators across the country by promoting competitive markets, the improvement of insurance regulations and equitable treatment of insurance consumers.
