Superintendent James Wrynn today announced that the Insurance Department has introduced a redesigned website, www.ins.state.ny.us, offering a cleaner, crisper appearance and focusing on making it easier for users to find information.
“The Insurance Department should be user-friendly for both consumers and the insurance industry. The Department’s website has been updated to make it possible for consumers, agents, brokers and insurers to more easily access the wealth of information contained on the site,” Wrynn said.
The website’s content is segmented into several major categories presenting information targeted to specific groups, such as consumers, insurance agents and brokers, and insurance companies.
In addition, the website:
The website also contains an insurance company search engine where users can easily identify insurance companies licensed to do business in New York State.
“The redesigned website is largely the result of recommendations advanced by the Insurance Filings Modernization Initiative, a joint Department-industry working group that focused on how the Department can best streamline internal review and other processes to better serve the public and the insurance industry,” Wrynn said.
“Participants in the Modernization Initiative believed it was imperative for the Department to continue to strengthen its website to make it easier for consumers and insurance industry professionals to find and use insurance-related information.”
The collaborative efforts of the Executive, Public Affairs, and Systems bureaus made the redesign based on the Initiative's recommendations a reality.
