New England Actuarial Seminars is your solution to studying for your Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) exams. Candidates seeking to attain membership with the CAS, CIA, and/or SOA are required to complete the VEE requirements for economics, corporate finance, and applied statistics. This is in addition to passing exams and other membership requirements. Most candidates can receive VEE credit by showing that they have successfully completed (grade of B- or better) VEE-approved university or college courses. Actuaries work in life insurance, retirement systems, health benefit systems, financial and investment management and other emerging areas of practice. The majority of actuaries work within the insurance industry, although a growing number of actuaries work in other fields. Actuaries are an important part of the management team of the companies that employ them. Their work requires a combination of strong analytical skills, business knowledge and understanding of human behavior to design and manage programs that control risk.
