Group and Health Track in 2018

While there are no formal prerequisites for registration to the CIA Group Benefits Exam, please note that the material covered in the SOA Group and Health Track exams and educational activities, including the Group and Health Core – Canada exam, are considered as background knowledge to the CIA Group Benefits Exam and are expected to be thoroughly understood by candidates.


The CIA Group Benefits Examination will take place on February 22, 2018
12:30 (ET)


Candidates may choose to write the exam in a location of their choosing, as long as it is proctored by a Fellow of the CIA.  

The exam will be a three-hour open book examination, similar to the former Practice Education Course (PEC) Group Benefits exam, however the Syllabus and course of reading will focus on the material not covered by SOA examinations that is required by the CIA Syllabus.
