    That's hard to judge. It depends on the type of job, for one.

    http://www.dwsimpson.com/salary is a good place to start.

    I think the number of actuaries on this board is very limited.

    If I've passed Course 6, then I'll be able to become an actuary after attending the APC in August. One is not an actuary until they have a credential stating that they are an actuary. Until then, you are an actuarial student/assistant/analyst/specialist/associate.

    question about CAS and SOA

    Hi everyone,

    I hope someone can help me with this: I know people with SOA exam is working for pension and employee benefit, and people with CAS exam is working for property and casualty.

    My question is when some companies require thier employee to take SOA exams and some require CAS exam. What is the differences between these two organization practically. I mean they have different responsible or the way they calculate risk is different??

    Maybe someone is working for property and casualty can give me some idea!!!

    Thank you for your help

    FSA - given by the Society of Actuaries; covers life, health, pension
    FCAS - given by the Casualty Actuary Society; covers property and casualty

    No, getting one does not allow you to automatically practice in the other. They are not interchangable.

    I read somewhere that some of the CAS and SOA exams are interchangeable on some levels......

    P/1, FM/2, and C/4. CAS had been taking M as credit for 3 but still nothing official as to whether they'll continue to do that going forward ... the only thing that's certain is that the SOA will be splitting M into a 3-hour exam and a 2-hour exam (can be taken separately), while the CAS will revamp their 3 to sort of mirror the SOA's exams but keep the exam at 4 hours.

    What is the differ between CAS and SOA

    What is the differ between being a member of CAS and SOA
    is it the same when you take the first four exams?
    only have to decide it after you become a ASA?
    Thanks!

    CAS is for property and casualty jobs. SOA is for pensions, life, health, etc.

    If you are an ASA that means you have already decided which route you are going to take. The ASA equivalent for CAS is ACAS. After the first four exams is when the exams become specific, i think.
