  • Limited Number of Exams

    I am new to this profession. If you complete four exams and stop there can you continue working as an actuary or will you eventually lose your job?

    Classifying oneself as an "actuary" requires obtaining your credentials from the SOA/CAS, or some other actuarial society. Even with the redesign, simply finishing the first 4 exams is not enough to call yourself an actuary. To be honest, if you finish the preliminary portion of the SOA education (4 exams), you've demonstrated you can do math. But, Course 5 is all about insurance and reserving. That will be where the meat of the subject lies. You can work in actuarial positions, but unless you become credentialed, I don't think you can nor deserve to pass yourself off as an "actuary".

        Yeah, you can do "actuarial jobs" ... but not practice as an actuary. Two different things. Credentials are there for a reason: they certify that you can do the job you're delegated to do.

          4 exams

          You will probably stay in a non-actuarial position, and not progress much.
          At least become an Associate.
