The Society of Actuaries (SOA) continues to work to keep you—our members, candidates, staff and volunteers—informed about the latest developments and changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic that swept through the world early this year. When we received the first wave of changes to the exam schedules, followed by the policies that changed the way we could conduct our in-person meetings, we knew we had to create a way to mitigate the impact of these changes on our stakeholders to the best of our ability. So, we created the COVID-19 SOA Updates Page as a place where you can easily find all the information you need when you need it, in one place.

This page contains updates on exams and new schedules; professional development event cancellations and new virtual sessions; and a variety of podcasts and research reports from the SOA Research department and the Health Section. These reports include the SOA Research Brief: Impact of COVID-19 that is updated regularly and accompanied by a podcast that discusses the brief.

Most recently, the Health Section released the COVID-19: Updates on Impact podcast in which Jackie Lee, FSA, MAAA, and Rebecca Owen, FSA, FCA, MAAA, discussed the impact of COVID-19—from quarantine and shortages to homeschooling, small businesses, group therapy and isolation.
