VEEs are Verified by Educational Experiences identified by the Society of Actuaries and are an Associateship requirement. There are three VEE topics:

  • Economics
  • Corporate Finance (ends July 1, 2019)
  • Accounting and Finance (new, begins July 1, 2018)
  • Applied Statistical Methods (ends July 1, 2018) 
  • Mathematical Statistics (new, begins July 1, 2018)

These are topics deemed essential building blocks by the Society of Actuaries, but not core actuarial work.

The VEE topics are not prerequisites for the preliminary exams (Exams P, FM, MLC, MFE and C) and may be fulfilled as desired. Students who fulfill the Concentration in Actuarial Science will have taken the necessary VEE courses, and can apply to the Society of Actuaries for VEE credit after successfully completing two SOA or CAS actuarial exams.

Complete requirements and information for the VEE is available here. It is important that you review the material at this website for current information on the VEE program requirements as VEE program requirements can change.
