After 34 years with Allianz Life, Becky Huerta has announced that she will retire from the company on June 1, 2021. Becky leaves behind a tremendous legacy in International Claim Association (ICA) and has paved the way for all of us.
Becky was actively involved with claims and anti-fraud trade associations over the course of her career. From 2000 – 2004 and 2012 – 2015 she served as the Secretary for the ICA (the first female and the first non-attorney in this position) and as the ICA’s President between 2006 – 2007. Becky spent countless hours supporting the ICA over her 25 years of involvement and was instrumental in the continued success of the ICA,” said Chris Murphy, ICA Executive Director.
Becky began her insurance career in the mailroom at Prudential in 1974. Over the next 13 years, she mastered claims for multiple lines of coverage. Becky relocated to Minnesota with Prudential in 1984 and in 1987; she accepted a position with North American Life & Casualty (now Allianz Life). NALAC allowed Becky to utilize her claims expertise and relied on her and her staff to manage claims administered by TPAs across the US and Canada. In time, Becky’s management responsibilities expanded to include the Special Investigation Unit, product filings and market conduct exams. Following the merger with LifeUSA, Becky was promoted to Chief Claims Officer with responsibilities for a staff of 50 people who managed claims for each lines of business. As blocks of business were sold or discontinued, Becky’s responsibilities within Compliance expanded to product filings, market conduct exams, complaints, advertising review and unclaimed property. Becky has held a Series 7 license since 2007.
Becky hopes to be remembered for bringing order to chaos. She looks forward to spending more time with family & friends, volunteering, gardening, puzzles and of course, knitting. The ICA family congratulates Becky on a long and successful career and wishes her a wonderful retirement!
