TN Visa Status as an Actuary

What is an Actuary for TN Visa purposes?

The profession of an Actuary is intricately tied to risk assessment and management. As defined by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH), “Actuaries play a pivotal role in evaluating the financial implications of risks. Their expertise in mathematics, statistics, and financial theories facilitates businesses and clients in policy creation, ensuring minimized risk costs.”
