Insurance Regulators

  • Insurance regulation can generally be described in two simple statements.
      1. Insurance regulators want insurers to have sufficient assets to make good on the promises they are selling
      2. and they want insurers to treat their policyholders and claimants right.

The first part of the statement describes what is known as solvency regulation and the second part is known as market regulation.

  • The Academy views its role in the government relations arena as providing information and actuarial analysis to public policy decision makers so that policy decisions can be made with informed judgment.
  • For example, the determination of required contribution levels to plans to provide benefits and the setting of appropriate reserve levels to meet future obligations are actuarial in nature.
