There’s a lot more to retirement planning than managing assets to generate an inflation-adjusted 4% withdrawal per year.

Our goal is to help advisors be aware of what they need to know about retirement so they can help their clients make informed decisions by providing them with key retirement takeaways.

We provide monthly live and recorded webinar presentations by today’s leading experts for advisors serious about fortifying their retirement expertise.

We have over 60 courses that are approved for the CFP Board’s Certified Financial Planner®(CFP®) certification, the College for Financial Planning’s Chartered Retirement Plan Consultant (CRPC) certification, the American College’s designations (ChFC, CLU, RICP), the International Foundation for Retirement Education’s (InFRE) Certified Retirement Counselor® (CRC®) certification, ASPPA and other certification or designation continuing education (CE) credit.

We ask our presenters to sum up their presentations with three to five key retirement takeaways for how they suggest learners apply their content.

We then post their top retirement takeaways on our website below and on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  You can follow the latest takeaways on your favorite social media feeds, or sign up to receive an email with the week’s posts.

We make it easy for you to stay on top of retirement and earn relevant CE.

Follow us on LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or by email notifications whenever there’s something new.
