Are you interested in a career in Insurance?
From growing market share to managing pressure on margins, insurance leaders choose us to help them work better and work differently.


SEGMENTS WE SERVE
•    Life, Annuities, Retirement & Group:
Just as every person who buys life insurance is different, so too is every life insurance policy, product, carrier and regulatory environment.
For most life insurance providers, what matters most isn’t ready-made solutions, but the kind of deep, practical experience required to tailor services to a carrier’s specific situation. And that is exactly what we bring to the life insurance industry.

•    Property & Casualty:
Property and Casualty (P&C) insurance may be a mature industry, but trying to do the same old things at less cost is no longer enough. To jumpstart growth, new IT developments like the cloud and mobility can help, but each requires IT expertise and knowledge of best practices.
Cognizant has the experience and technology expertise to help, along with a tradition of listening to customers. That’s one reason our clients include 13 of the top 25 P&C insurers in the U.S. and eight of the 10 largest European insurers.


CONSULTING & SOLUTIONS
Our solutions portfolio for insurers includes BPS, emerging technology consulting and systems integration and maintenance.
•    Life, Annuity & Retirement Business Processing Services:
Cognizant's Life, Annuity & Retirement Business Processing Service (BPS) helps insurers gain a competitive edge by handling routine back-office operations while you focus on revenue-generating activities. As a result, you will not only reduce costs and modernize systems, but better align business and operating models with process optimization. 
•    Systems Integration & Maintenance for Insurance:
We have strategic relationships with leading software companies that specialize in products and platforms specific to the insurance industry, such as agent compensation, claims processing and policy administration. Our team of business and technology experts will modernize your operations and attain best-in-class technology architecture while managing costs. Cognizant’s Platform Conversion Score (PCS)
