The 2012 syllabus is now available on the SOA web site:

Here is a rundown of the various changes …

Excludes changes due to MAP-21

Suggested Readings now includes ERISA section 206(g). This is nothing new, since section 436 of the Internal Revenue Code has provisions that are parallel to the provisions in section 206(g) of ERISA.

Cutoff date for Internal Revenue Code is May 31, 2012

One item was added to the reading list:

Added new exam condition 45, which is the same as EA-2B exam conditions 31 and 32:
(45) Unless otherwise specified, AFTAPs have been certified on a timely basis. The plan has provisions for automatically restoring accruals ceased due to the application of IRC section 436, to the extent permitted by regulations, and the plan’s actuary has provided the required certification to permit such restoration.

Renumbered prior exam conditions 45-56
