Job Summary

The Senior Reinsurance Claims Consultant handles casualty reinsurance assumed claims involving alleged injury due to asbestos, pollution, product defects, and other “long tail” liabilities.  The Senior Consultant adjusts these often-complex claims with minimal guidance, with the goal of resolving the claim and controlling exposure. To do so, the Senior Consultant analyzes Allstate’s contractual obligations, processes new claim and reserve notices, maintains claim files, and responds to reinsurance billings.  

In addition to working within a team of Consultants, the Senior Consultant often interacts with representatives from other insurance companies, intermediaries (agents and brokers), and inhouse and outside counsel.  In cases involving disputed claims, the Senior Consultant is required to appear for deposition and testify in court or at an arbitration hearing. 

The Senior Reinsurance Claims Consultant is a Home-Based Work Employee and, therefore, can live anywhere within the United States (with a few exceptions).  The Senior Reinsurance Claims Consultant will use tools like Microsoft Teams and Zoom to stay productive and connected to the team of claims handlers and to management.

  • Review, understand, and apply relevant provisions of casualty reinsurance contracts;
  • Maintain reinsurance claim files in a timely and accurate manner; 
  • Effectively manage caseloads with work completed in the established timeframe;   
  • Participate in claim audits;
  • With the assistance of management, develop strategies and solutions for problematic claims and accounts;
  • Testify in a deposition and/or an arbitration hearing when required to do so; and
  • Other duties as assigned.
Job Qualifications
  • Bachelor’s degree is preferred;
  • 5 + years related experience handling complex claims;
  • Ability to effectively handle asbestos and environmental insurance and/or reinsurance claims, including investigating and evaluating such latent injury claims with management support;
  • Strong analytical and decision-making skills; 
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills including the ability to effectively collaborate with others at all organizational levels;
  • Ability to interact effectively with the internal team including management, as well as external customers, with proven positive results;
  • Ability to learn and utilize multiple claim systems and computer software; and
