New Actuaries

Our new actuarial students can enjoy a world-class training program during their first few months at Allstate. The actuarial training program has a dynamic environment where a new student's day consists of:

  • Reviewing and analyzing mathematical data (premiums, losses, expenses, etc.) to determine whether the premium collected covers the associated losses, expenses and profit expectations.
  • Analyzing rating variables to determine whether an appropriate rate is being charged to different segments within the market.
  • Attending formal classroom training sessions.
  • Working one-on-one with their manager for more in depth instruction on actuarial concepts, and developing camaraderie with the other members of their training class.

The concepts and skills learned during this time ensures that each new hire has the knowledge necessary to help them succeed in their role as an actuarial student.

Exam Review

Taking actuarial exams is an integral part of the actuarial career. To be an accredited casualty actuary, you must pass a series of professional examinations administered by the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) and the Society of Actuarial (SOA). These examinations are demanding, covering many of the techniques and theories used in the actuarial profession.

The purpose of the exams is to assist with your development as a qualified professional in the casualty actuarial field. Allstate assists employees to help assure that their actuaries have every opportunity to be successful on the exams. For more information on our study program, write to Ask an Actuary. After having passed a prescribed number of casualty actuarial exams and a course on professionalism and ethics, you are designated as an Associate (ACAS) and admitted as a member to the CAS. Upon successfully completing the remainder of the exams, you are designated as a Fellow (FCAS) of the CAS. Typically successful completion of the exams and the designation of FCAS requires eight to 10 years of self-study and practical actuarial experience.
