The Insurance Council of New Jersey (ICNJ) is a non-profit, insurance research, information and advocacy organization representing 16 New Jersey licensed property/casualty insurance companies. Collectively, ICNJ member companies underwrite 55 percent of automobile insurance policies, 59 percent of homeowners' insurance policies, 45 percent of workers' compensation policies and 47 percent of the commercial insurance in New Jersey.
ICNJ is the successor organization to the New Jersey Insurance News Service (NJINS). Organized in 1977 by prominent insurance company executives, NJINS grew over the years to become the industry's leading voice in New Jersey. On January 1, 1999 NJINS expanded its mission and became the Insurance Council of New Jersey (ICNJ).
ICNJ's mission is to create a positive image and understanding of the property/casualty insurance business and to promote a positive business environment through education, public information and communication with the state's media, consumers and public officials.
