According to Wiki Answers, Actuaries are among the top 10 highest earning careers:
One thing to keep in mind about actuaries is that when you see the median salary for an actuary, this salary given is not accurate since you are not really an actuary until you obtain your associateship or fellowship in the professional society you are studying for. If you are an actuarial analyst you are an actuarial student in training to become a certified actuary. The median salary of certified actuaries (Associates or Fellows in the Society of Actuaries, etc.) would easily be among the top ten lists above. In addition, actuaries often get promoted to executive positions for the companies they work for which further elevates their salaries.
