NY STATE INSURANCE DEPT. LAUNCHES NEW INTERNET WEBSITE
September 8, 1997
Superintendent of Insurance Neil D. Levin today announced that the New York State Insurance Department's new Internet website located at www.ins.state.ny.us is up and running.
"It is vital that the New York State Insurance Department have a presence on the Internet. Our website should serve as an important resource for many people and organizations. It will be a useful tool for helping the Department effectively and efficiently serve the needs of consumers as well as the insurance industry," Superintendent Levin said.
The website provides access to Department complaint rankings, consumer insurance shopping guides, directory of regulated companies, Department circular letters, press releases, the monthly Bulletin, the insurance frauds newsletter, the Superintendent's speeches, and directions for how to file a complaint.
The website also lists important Department phone numbers and hotlines, describes licensing requirements for both producers and insurers, and answers frequently asked questions from both consumers and the industry. Certain reports and licensing requirement packets can be downloaded. In addition, employment opportunities at the Insurance Department will be posted on the website with an e-mail address for sending resumes directly to Human Resources.
The website will also provide links to other insurance related sites as well as to websites of local, state, and federal government entities.
