The Insurance Laws contain the state’s insurance title or chapter. They are typically revised once a year. The revision incorporates all of the changes from a legislative session into the book. Occasionally, a state may have a special session that results in a second revision in a year for that book.

These laws establish the framework for the regulation of an insurance business. Like all of our NILS Red Books, the Insurance Laws are thoroughly organized and uniquely indexed to enable you to find key concepts in the Insurance industry, rather than just key words. The Insurance Laws are updated annually with loose-leaf supplements and are a valuable tool for any insurance professional.

These are laws found in the various statutory titles of a state, other than the Insurance Code, and establish the framework for the regulation of an insurance business. Workers Compensation, for example, is clearly an insurance concept, but in some states, Workers Compensation is covered by the Labor Code and not the Insurance Code. For such reasons, we publish the Related Laws.

While most insurance regulation occurs at the state level, the Federal Government does concern itself with such topics as ERISA, securities and taxation issues. The Federal Insurance Laws and Regulations volumes contain laws and regulations from the United States Code and the Code of Federal Regulations, selected for their relevance to insurance.

Printed in a loose leaf format, the Regulations volumes are updated throughout the year as new and revised regulations are issued. The Laws volumes are updated annually, following each session of Congress.
