False. I don't do the core actuarial pricing/modeling/reserving type work, but a lot of what I do is tangential and even requires knowledge from the actuarial exams. I'm also constantly interfacing with actuaries that run my company's Annuities business.

That's why literally everybody on my team, except me, is either an actuary or an actuarial associate rotating in from the company's actuarial development program. I'm not wasting my time in this role, and could easily leverage my experience for an "actual actuarial" role.

Best wishes to you. Just know that you are not in a traditional actuarial role and that most actuaries will probably see you exactly as you describe, tangential and valuable, but not an actuary. That can be a fine place to be, and I know several people who have made a career out of being tangential to an actuarial group.

Glad you got the exam raise worked out.
