LAST REMINDER: Register for the 2018 CIA Group Benefits Examination before December 31

The CIA Group Benefits Examination is a requirement for candidates in the SOA Group and Health track who wish to attend the CIA Practice Education Course in 2018. The examination will take place on February 22, 2018. 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 deadline for registration is December 31, 2017.

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 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.
