The article reports on the mandate of the U.S. National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) to use electronic filing (e-filing) of financial statements. With the mandate, various state insurance departments have reworked their web sites to offer online postings of insurance company financial statements. Moreover, it is noted that most state insurance agencies are expected to go paperless because e-filing is eco-friendly and cost efficient.
