Nevada Address of Insurance Companies

If the insurance company is registered with the Nevada Secretary of State, then, for the purposes of its Annual Statement, its Nevada address is the address of its registered agent.
If the insurance company is registered with the Nevada Division of Insurance, then, for the purposes of its Annual Statement, its Nevada address is the address of the Nevada Commissioner of Insurance because the Commissioner acts as the attorney/agent to receive service of legal process issued against the insurer in this state.
