Digital Badges


The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans has made publicizing your CEBS designation easier with digital badges, visual and clickable online symbols of your accomplishments. Digital badges are portable image files that offer a simple way for you to share your credentials across the web. After claiming your badge, you can use it in your e-mail signature, on social media profiles and on websites. Anyone who clicks on the badge will be taken to a site where they can verify your credential and find more information about the CEBS program and the specific designations.

Currently, digital badges are available for those who have earned the following credentials: Certified Employee Benefit Specialist® (CEBS), Group Benefits Associate (GBA), Retirement Plans Associate (RPA), and Compensation Management Specialist (CMS) in either the US or Canada. Badges are also available for those who are CEBS®-Compliant in either the US or Canada. View all badges from the International Foundation on Credly's Platform.
