The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) launched a public awareness and education program to help consumers better understand insurance issues. The program, which is called Insure U, provides an online education site and public service announcements to help people make informed decisions concerning auto, home, health and life insurance. The interactive Web site includes basic, consumer-friendly information for each area of insurance, knowledge-measuring quizzes and links to state insurance departments. In addition, the site features “life stage courses,” which address the needs of consumers at different points in their lives, such as young singles, young families, established families and empty nesters/seniors.
“State insurance departments across the U.S. have embraced Insure U as a powerful, coordinated initiative to help consumers make smarter insurance decisions,” said Alessandro A. Iuppa, NAIC president and superintendent of the Maine Bureau of Insurance.
NAIC, headquartered in Kansas City, MO, is a voluntary organization of the chief insurance regulatory officials of all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. For more information about Insure U go to www.insureUonline.org.
