​CEBS Compliance

CEBS Compliance status is a formal recognition of the ongoing, career-long professional development that CEBS graduates maintain to best serve their plan participants, employers and other stakeholders. CEBS Compliance means you are a leader in the profession.

It means that the professional development activities you are already doing—for professional enrichment, to maintain a license or designation, or just to stay up-to-date—can be formally recognized for contributing to the professional currency that CEBS graduates are known for.

Maintaining CEBS Compliance status helps you keep your professional skills sharp.  It upholds the reputation of the CEBS designation and the community of benefits professionals who have earned it.

As a Society member, you have access to a variety of educational activities that you can apply towards CEBS Compliance including:

• ISCEBS Symposium

• ISCEBS local chapter programs

• Educational activities - including webcasts - sponsored by the International Foundation

• CEBS courses (U.S. or Canada) beyond those completed to earn your designation.

Other activities you pursue for maintaining a related designation may also qualify.
