About Us

The National Conference of Insurance Guaranty Funds (NCIGF) is a non-profit, member-funded association that provides national assistance and support to the property and casualty guaranty funds located in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Incorporated in December 1989, the NCIGF monitors national insurance activities, coordinates information for multi-state insolvencies and provides legal, informational, administrative, communications and public policy and administrative support to our members. The NCIGF works in close cooperation with the property and casualty insurance trade associations to monitor and respond to issues that might impact state guaranty funds. The group serves as a trusted expert, informing trade and other organizations as they develop model legislation related to state guaranty fund laws.
