I want to know the importance of doing LOMA FLMI certification. Will it be useful enough to go into core insurance field. What are the expectations or job profile of a person who has done such certifications on insurance? what is the package which an insurance company can give? (a ball park figure).

LOMA FLMI (Life Office Management Association) is a 10 level course, offering diffrent specializations at diffrrent levels, for example Level 1 talks about Insurance Industry and general principlies related to Life Insurance and overall practices of Insurance companies specific to US market.

LOMA is a good certyification cource if you are aligned with any of the Insurance processes within a BPO or if you are working for an Insurance company that has partnered with US Insurance company to understand the diffrence between US and Indian Insurance market.

I have completed Level 2 of LOMA FLMI, however now a days its not uincommon for many fresh graduates to undergo this certifications as a lot of companies across India have a tie up with LOMA and they take the I* test online as a part of their Learning plan.

LOMA certification (depending upon which level), is useful in case you are joining a company which has specific process related to US Insurance since LOMA is basically US based organization providing knowledge on US Insurance and other financial products like Mutual Funds, Annuities, retirement plans etc.

If you plan to join any of the Indian Insurance companies, LOMA can be an added advantage, however just LOMA will not suffice since Indian Insurance is very diffrent than US Insurance.

the average package a fresher in this industry will start with is depending upon the specialization like Insurance Sales Agent may get start of 8k to 12k + Incentives

Customer service Rep may draw between 8 to 12k again

Underwriters who specialize in premium processing may get somewhat between 18 to 30K

Acturies can expect more than all since they decide on premium rates.

My suggestion, you should go for certification from Indian Institues that will be more helpful and relevent in case you plan to join Indian Insurance companies.

ICFAI and Symbiosis do offer such distance Learning courses.

Hope this information helps
