The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans provides
continuing education opportunity for licensing requirements (attorneys,
CPAs, insurance and others).
Can I earn continuing education credit by
attending educational programs sponsored by the International Foundation
of Employee Benefit Plans?
Any individual can receive a verification of attendance for continuing education credit for license renewal
or for personal records. However, because licensing credit is subject
to state regulations, this service should be requested before you
How can I request this service?
List your profession(s) and, if applicable, the state(s)
of licensing in the continuing education request portion of the
How is my continuing education credit verified?
A set of personalized continuing education forms will be included
in the registration packet you receive on-site. The completed forms
verify attendance at specific sessions. NOTE: If you requested continuing education at the time you registered but did not receive continuing education forms in your packet, PLEASE SEE an International Foundation representative on site .
One (1) form must be completed for each session. The session
number, date, time and title (abbreviate) must be filled out manually
and each form must be signed.
Manually fill in #1 for the first session you attend and #2 for the second session, etc.
Annual Conference Only
Each session is assigned a number in the program book. Manually
fill in the assigned number for each session you attend. (Example: #302
could be your first session, #412 your second.)
At the conclusion of each session, leave the form for that session with a meeting room attendant.
Why do I have to fill out so many forms?
Some states require sign-in, sign-out sheets; the
completed continuing education forms signed individually meet these
Also, if an individual's continuing education report is audited by
a licensing board, we can provide a record of that individual's
attendance—including that the subject matter of sessions attended is in
compliance with continuing education regulations.
How is my credit recorded and reported?
A Continuing Education Certificate is produced based on
the continuing education forms deposited by each individual. Each
certificate is personalized to provide information regarding credit in
the state(s) of licensing, i.e., sponsor ID numbers, assigned course
numbers and the total hours of accepted credit.
Is it necessary that I have this Continuing Education Certificate?
Yes. We also will keep a copy of the certificate with
the continuing education forms you submitted, because state boards
require that attendance records be maintained for five years by the
sponsor. The certificate and attendance forms meet these requirements.
Is there a charge for this service?
Yes. An administrative fee is charged for processing
the continuing education forms and producing the Continuing Education
Certificate. Currently, the registration form notes that the amount of
this fee is $25.
Why do you charge an additional fee for this service?
The International Foundation designs courses for members
of a diverse audience involved in employee benefits, most of whom do not
have CE requirements. However, some are attorneys, some hold insurance
licenses, some are CPAs--all driven by state-specific regulations--and
others might hold professional designations for which recertification
credit is needed.
A $25 administration fee is charged for producing a CE
certificate, which lists sessions attended by title and totals the hours
of attendance. This fee includes administrative procedures unique to
the type of profession for which credit is earned and is not built into
the registration fee charged to all attendees.
Personalized yellow CE attendance forms for documenting attendance
at the individual sessions are issued to those who choose CE service
and pay the $25 fee at the time they register. Follow the instructions
printed on the yellow forms so that your credit hours are documented
Can I earn continuing education units for attendance at programs?
No. CEUs are issued by some educational institutions
and professional associations as a uniform unit of measurement for
participation in noncredit continuing education. We do not issue CEUs;
instead, continuing education participation is verified in 60-minute
How do I know if the program I attend will earn continuing education credit for my license renewal?

attorneys, insurance producers, actuaries and other professionals. Any

Will I receive a personal continuing education record?

time of registration and used continuing education forms will receive a
verification of attendance for personal continuing education
documentation and will be charged a fee for this service.
How do I receive continuing education verification?

request credit in advance.
