The Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation is a professional credential earned by insurance agents and other financial planning professions. There are educational, experience, and ethics mandates needed to earn the CLU designation. Fewer than five percent of those in the field have qualified to earn this designation.

The requirements for becoming a CLU are stringent. Besides passing the exam, each CLU must pass a comprehensive curriculum of ten college level courses, have extensive experience in the industry, and preserve the integrity of the designation by subscribing to a strict code of professional ethics.
