My FSA is new enough that I still get excited to be able to answer that I’m a Fellow on polls :slight_smile:


I knew I was the most average (where in this case I’m relying on the (ignoring ties) mode as my average)!

Worked as an actuarian for a few years but it didn’t stick. Went back to my teaching job before getting ASA.

So basically we just lost all the youngins in their 20s

I am a “data scientist” for a p&c carrier.
But i am doing the same work/natural evolution of the same work that i have been doing since 2005.

No credentials.
But i got damn close before stopping 10 years ago.

I’d round that to “doing actuarial work” for this poll.

That is how i voted but i wanted to feel special and add more detail.

I am that one vote right now…

EA but no other credentials. Small plan actuary but most of my business is small DC plans or DC/DB combo plans.

My something else: No credentials, not working on it, have done actuarial work, doing other stuff now

50+ fellow, who still does light actuarial work so voted as still doing it. not the bulk of my role anymore.

I rounded my job (capital modeling) to “doing actuarial work”.

For future reference, in polls like this, it might be useful to distinguish between career associates and associates still working towards fellowship.

Some left, others stayed so long they evolved into Raichu.

That’s two important categories i missed. Oh well.

What % of active users responded to the above poll? By active users I used actuarial judgement to include anyone who posts once a month or more.

Age nearest or age last birthday? This is an actuarial forum.


I work with a company that uses actual age for it’s life insurance. I don’t get it.
Actually I do get it. They target p&c brokers with their life insurance policies, and that’s an even lower bar than life insurance brokers. Keeps things simple.

I was thinking last birthday (thus the cut offs) but, um, i think you may be suggesting more precision than is reasonable to expect from any accounts internet survey.
