So you have a job? What does your employer prefer?

If you don't have a job, is there a reason you are wedded to a&h?

I'm working in life side and considering to move on to a&h, but little worried bc I'm at the stage of choosing FSA track.

While I can only speak from my personal experience with A&H (which is a single data point), I would think the SOA route is much more likely for this line.

I once interviewed for an A&H position. It was at a P&C company, so I figured it would be in the same family as comp and would follow the CAS career path. During the interview I expressed how gung-ho I was to be going the CAS route with a P&C carrier, only to be told "this is an SOA track position." Unsurprisingly, I didn't get an offer.
