  • Overview

    UFG offers you an award-winning workplace and a trustworthy, financially stable company. While we’ve always known our commitment to employees and financial stewardship, it is good to have others recognize our dedicated efforts. We've been named an Iowa Top Workplace by the Des Moines Register for four consecutive years, and included on Forbes’ “America’s Most Trustworthy Financial Companies” every year since 2014. Additionally, UFG is a super-regional property and casualty insurer rated “A” (Excellent) by A.M. Best Company.


    Here at UFG, we have a shared vision built on the dynamic foundation of people, service, profit and growth. We believe this vision is the right approach for our employees, and the smart approach for our business. If you believe in the principles of “people and service” and feel excitement from “profit and growth,” then we encourage you to check out our internship program.


    UFG is looking for an ambitious, career-minded individual with strong analytical and people skills for a professional Actuarial Internship. This will be an excellent full-time opportunity during the summer to work under the direction and supervision of an experienced actuary. The Actuarial Intern will assist with supporting major actuarial work products which include reserve analysis, rate filing support, and various ad-hoc projects.


    The Actuarial Intern will primarily assist with actuarial analyses and projects that are needed in order to properly and accurately support accounting and reporting requirements on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis. Additional projects may include assisting the Underwriting department with rate filings or doing special projects for the claim department. All work will involve property & casualty insurance and must adhere to accepted actuarial standards, methodologies, and knowledge gained through either coursework or on the job training. The Actuarial Intern will work closely with the Actuary, Senior Financial Analyst, and Reinsurance Accountants.
