Underwriting Assistants support and assist our underwriters in determining
the acceptability of insurance risks and the premium those risks require. They
conduct research, ensure adequate pricing, manage agency requests and handle
most of the administrative tasks required to properly prepare and document
files. In addition, they underwrite and process smaller renewal policies.
Underwriting Assistants must be detail oriented and have the communication
skills to effectively explain, persuade and present information to their
underwriting teams as well as their independent agency customers.
Underwriting Assistant careers begin with a blend of formal classroom
training and job coaching from experienced insurance professionals.
