Annual Employee Benefits Conference Continuing Education Credit

CEBS Compliance Credit:

Each session is worth 1.5 credits toward CEBS Compliance. By the conclusion of the conference, you should self-report your attendance depending on how many full sessions you watch.

HRCI/SHRM Credit:

You may self-report attendance for PHR/SPHR/GPHR designations and SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP designations. 

 

Note for insurance and CLE credit: Due to approval procedures for virtual conferences that often differ from in-person conferences, not all sessions may qualify for credit, and credit in some states may not be possible. While we will do our best to gain approval of the program in the states listed below, please note approval may not be granted in all states. If your state of licensure is not listed below, please contact Laura Scholz at lauras@ifebp.org to see if seeking approval is a possibility. 

This website will be updated frequently as new information is received.  Please refer back for more information. 

 

Insurance Credit:

We will be applying for Insurance CE Credit in the states listed below. To be eligible to receive credit, you must watch each approved session live and in full as it occurs. Attending a live session only in part, a pre-recorded session, or a recording of a live session will not be eligible for credit. The virtual conference spans three weeks and each week is submitted as a separate program for CE purposes. To earn credit for the week, while participating live, you are also required to answer all periodic, unannounced polling questions. Failure to answer each of the polling questions or be logged in for every minute of each approved session will result in no credit earned for the week. Please plan accordingly and login early to each session. These are the rules of the state insurance boards in regards to attendance monitoring for virtual conferences. Documentation of approved sessions will be posted (linked to state name) as approval is received.

NASBA Accountant Credit:

The National Registry of CPE Sponsors has been providing flexibility to "Group Live only" approved sponsors, allowing for in-person events to be modified and offered online as a result of COVID-19. This flexibility is allowing us to offer the live sessions of this virtual conference for CPE credit. There are a few exceptions to this flexibility that we want you to be aware of. While The National Registry of CPE Sponsors is the overarching decision maker, each state has the ability to make its own rules regarding CPE requirements. NASBA reached out to the states to see whether they would allow the flexibility as described above.  Two states indicated that they will not allow this flexibility (Kansas and New York).  The remaining states either indicated they would allow for the flexibility, or they did not respond to NASBA.  If you are licensed in a state other than Kansas or New York, we can create a certificate for you based on your attendance at live sessions, viewed as they occur live.  It is ultimately up to your state Accounting Board if they will accept the credit.  Click here for a document outlining available credit.
