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.
