My wonderful husband just passed part 3 of his EA exam!

Besides being a qualification that he can take anywhere in the country, getting his EA comes with perks at his work-- besides paying for the tests, prep materials, fees, etc., once the official notice comes (in about 6-8 weeks), he'll be getting a $5000 bonus, be allowed to take a 4 day work week every other week, and get higher performance bonuses. [Big Grin]

He has worked really, really hard for this, and I am SO proud!

Yeah, part four is a background check to make sure you've never been convicted of theft or embezzlement and don't have outstanding debt to the IRS. [Wink]

And guess what came today?

[Big Grin] The certificate and card.

Guess they decided that that grand theft auto didn't matter, huh? [Wink]

Shhh!! kq, didn't you read the other thread about never talking! A posting on hatrack might be considered a confession!

Then again, as you are his spouse, maybe you have spousal privilege. We'd need Dag to tell us for sure.

At any rate, GTA aside, congrats to KPC!

Way to go! (I missed this the first time around.)

Belle, privilege is waived by sharing privileged information with a third party. [Razz]

That's good stuff, those all sound like hard-earned and deserved spoils!

I'm going to take the first exam to be an actuary soon, so I may also be starting a cycle of exams to ensure vacations, bonuses and the like. Not to mention the particular company I'm looking at wants you to pass at least one exam a year.

Good luck, Emp. It's a hard test -- I took it twice. (And an observant person might note that I am not an actuary. [Wink] )

Most companies push the one-test-a-year model now, from what I hear.

Thanks for the well-wishes- I've got a manual to study until the test in a few months, and my brother's an actuary. He's also a genius, and he used to be a teacher. Hopefully he can help me before hand.

I took a look at the manual for a few hours today, and it seems like the material is easier than it looks. It's just being explained terribly in the book.

That was one of Jeff's problems with the EA stuff-- it takes 3 read-throughs to understand some of these regulations on even a basic level, and that's for someone already fluent in IRS-ese. Even the study guides that are GOOD aren't much help when the regulation itself is poorly worded. [Embarrassed]
