I'm in school for insurance...?
And I am wondering... how do you move up?
I am looking to get into underwriting. I know the step after being a junior underwriter is an actual underwriter and then eventually a senior underwriter. Where would you go from there? Is there still room to move up?
What about the other roles in insurance companies? Is there more room to grow being a broker or a claims adjuster?
Any information would be welcome thank you :)

My career started in the way that you describe. I started out of college with a business degree with no insurance specialization at all. The company trained me in an intensive 4 week fundamentals of insurance class. I become a personal lines auto underwriter. After a while I became a commercial lines underwriter and after a change in employers I eventually when on to become the commercial lines underwriting supervisor. Had I continued on that path the next step up would have likely been a move up to the corporate home office.
In my case, I was interested in an agency sales position. Because I had daily contact with independent agents in the field I had many contacts that eventually led to a job in an agent's office where I took over for a retiring agent. It was an ideal set up because I was able to take over his book of business and add my accounts. After a while my partner and I bought the agency from the remaining principals.
It all depends upon what you want to do with your career. Stay in a corporate environment where you have a clear career path with some, perhaps minimal, level of security or go into the more uncertain world of brokerage. It's up to you to decide.
Good luck and best wishes.Source(s): ...

Um, that is not "health". That's crew accident insurance policy, IF IF in the event you bought into it. And IF IF in case you purchased 24/7 insurance policy. The best way it really works, is you go to the physician/health center, and get copies of the scientific expenditures, and then mail them to the plan administrator. Most commonly that insurance policy is on a secondary foundation, to every other legitimate health insurance insurance policy you would have. Traditionally, it'll have a $a hundred deductible, and pay as much as $10,000 in medical charges, however I've additionally seen $1,000 deductibles, and then it can pay as much as $100,000 in clinical bills. All of it depends on what the institution selected to present.
