Actuaries design financial programs which focus on life, health, property, casualty, retirement, demographic, economic and investment possibilities. This is accomplished by using statistical and economic techniques to evaluate the financial, economic and business implications of future events.
Actuaries achieve professional status by passing a series of qualifying examinations administered by the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS).
Under the jurisdiction of the U. S. Labor and Treasury Departments, actuaries are regulated by the Joint Board for Enrollment of Actuaries.
