Purpose of Job

USAA’s 10-week, summer internship program offers college students the chance to discover what it’s like to work at a Fortune 100 company and leading financial services organization. Our interns deliver innovative solutions to real business challenges, and build enduring relationships with their manager and an assigned mentor. While gaining insight into the service of the military community and USAA’s noble mission, interns are immediately part of USAA’s collaborative culture. Spend your summer at USAA and gain a career where you can make a difference!

The actuaries at USAA are trusted experts when it comes to quantitatively assessing the risk and uncertainty associated with future events.  Key projects in the actuarial space include pricing insurance policies, setting loss reserve amounts, building models to predict expected losses, simulating market scenarios, forecasting revenues, and accounting for the possibility of catastrophes. If math comes easily to you, if you love finding patterns in data, if you can communicate advanced topics to a non-technical audience, if you have a fundamental understanding of programming logic – consider an actuarial internship at USAA.

Our 2021 summer internship program will start on May 24, 2021 and last through July 30, 2021. To be eligible, you must be a college student during the time of the internship program.
