Actuaries are people who deal with the financial risks involved in such life experiences as retirement, unemployment, accident, death, and other contingencies of living life. An actuary usually has strong mathematical, statistical, and business skills. A person becomes an actuary by passing a series of eight exams given by an actuary society.
