Insurance Financial Examiners
The Division of Financial Regulation is responsible for overseeing the financial condition of insurance companies, including HMOs, which come under Wisconsin's jurisdiction. The division employs individuals with accounting, auditing, and finance backgrounds as insurance financial examiners. We provide on-the-job training and also encourage examiners to receive formal career and job-related training. (The examiner position qualifies as work experience for the CPA certificate.) Examiners perform on-site audits of Wisconsin insurance company financial statements and operations. Examiners interact with a variety of insurance company management and staff, including professionals in the accounting, actuarial, investment, legal, information technology, underwriting, and claims fields. Examiners also review financial statements, audit reports, and other company documents, working part of the year in-office as financial analysts. Examiners travel throughout Wisconsin and occasionally out-of-state (the positions require about 50% travel), but they are headquartered in Madison.
The Division of Market Regulation & Enforcement is responsible for overseeing the marketing, rating, underwriting, claims, and customer service practices of insurers and agents. Within this job classification, duties can range from reviewing insurance policy forms to investigating for violations of insurance laws to conducting on-site audits. The office hires staff from a broad range of backgrounds, including claims, underwriting, business administration, economics, public administration, and systems analysis. On-site training and training outside the office are provided.
Some travel is involved when market conduct examinations of insurers are undertaken.
A variety of positions provide general administrative office and program support. Tasks vary by position, but all require customer service and communication skills.
The Legal Unit initiates hearings on matters as diverse as the financial condition of insurance companies, abusive sales tactics, and fraud. The unit offers a wide range of challenging duties for attorneys interested in state government careers.
