The Actuarial Development Program (ADP) at Unum has been in existence for over 40 years, and provided guidance and support to hundreds of actuaries early in their careers. Many have built on the foundation provided by the ADP and grown into executive leaders at Unum and across the insurance industry.
Unum’s ADP Is Built Around Three Key Elements
- Targeted development of actuarial, financial and leadership skills
- Rotational work assignments to promote broad business awareness
- Comprehensive exam support towards the pursuit of Fellowship
Each ADP participant has a unique development plan based on their own abilities, experience and career aspirations. Development opportunities are offered in forums including on-the-job training, classroom training, leadership programs, and speaker series. In addition, all ADP participants have frequent interaction with corporate officers.
Roughly every 18 months, ADP participants rotate to a new area of the business to learn a new product or discipline, gain new perspectives, and continue their development as actuaries. Traditional actuarial rotations take place in areas such as pricing, reserve valuation, and claims risk analysis, but some rotations extend well beyond traditional financial roles.
Unum expects ADP participants to make consistent progress towards Fellowship. The exam process is rigorous, and Unum recognizes this by providing significant assistance and rewards to reflect the commitment required. Our Actuarial Education Program provides company-paid study time, covers the cost of textbooks, study guides, preparatory seminars, and exam fees, and offers generous salary increases for each exam passed.
