JOB CODE: 04528 SERIES NATURE OF WORK: The actuarial job series describes work performing mathematical, statistical, and financial calculations to analyze predictive models.

DEFINITION: This is structured and specialized trainee work assisting actuaries in the analysis, evaluation, and calculation of the probability and severity of loss, expense, and other costs for health insurance companies, property and casualty insurance companies, or self-insured employers and group funds requesting to be self-insured for workers’ compensation purposes.

An employee in this job receives on-the-job training to develop the necessary skills and experience to review and analyze loss experience, outstanding liabilities, and the accuracy of reported data for self-insured applicants and employers. Work involves assisting higher level actuaries with actuarial assessments to develop skills in reviewing, evaluating, and analyzing insurance rates, rating procedures, rating plans, reserve projections, methodologies, and schedules to determine whether they conform with statutory requirements and to ensure they are not excessive, inadequate, or unfairly discriminatory.
