Default CAS CE - attestation year

I noticed in the CAS directory, my attestation year is 2017, but a lot of other people's say 2018.

I checked this off at the end of the year around the same time I paid my dues. I did all my hours in 2017. I still have a few hours left to do this year. 2017 was also the year I got my ACAS, so my first year doing this.

Am I supposed to wait until I finish my 2018 hours before attesting to the 2018 year, or is there some kind of rolling basis where finishing last year's hours lets me "attest" this year.

I guess I am not really sure what "attestation year" means.



Edit- I reread my email from the end of the year which says
"A pop-up window with three drop-down menus will appear. Select:
The year for which you are certifying (2018);"
The email was in December 2017 and said this was due by the end of 2017.

Therefore I am thinking I should change my status to say comply for 2018 via the US Qualification Standard, then change 2017's to say comply by new member (I am pretty sure I had all the necessary hours in 2016 too but wasn't tracking formally until I got ACAS in 2017). Does this sound right? I know I have complied, just confused about the years.

Edit #2- Apparently my reading skills suck. Also in the email it says "Compliance with the CAS CE Policy allows the member to provide actuarial services in the year immediately following certification of compliance." So I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to "attest" for 2018 if I complied in 2017? Thinking about this again though, I'm still confused.

Attestation year is the last year you attested to be qualified to perform actuarial services. So, this year I'll be attesting that I'm qualified for 2019 and after doing so my profile should says Attestation Year 2019.

There is no rule as to when you attest (that I know of), but since you attest for the following year I usually wait until I have my hours logged and dues paid.
