HARRISBURG, PA - Conrad Siegel Actuaries, delivering comprehensive employee benefits services, proudly announced today that Ashley Wise recently earned the designation of Enrolled Actuary. Wise is already an Associate of the Society of Actuaries (ASA). She is currently working towards a Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst (CERA) designation with the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and further toward a Fellowship with SOA. The E.A. designation means that Wise is now approved by a joint board from the Department of the Treasury and the Department of Labor to perform actuarial tasks under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Wise has fulfilled the experience requirement and passed the required examinations administered by the Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries as well as the SOA.
