Candidates for the RICP® designation must complete a minimum of three college-level courses and are required to pass a series of two-hour proctored exams. They must also have three years of experience, meet stringent ethic requirements, and participate in The College’s continuing education program.

The RICP® educational curricula is the most complete and comprehensive program available to professional financial advisors looking to help their clients create sustainable retirement income. The rigorous three-course credential helps advisors master retirement income planning, a key focus area not fully covered in other professional designation programs. From retirement portfolio management techniques and mitigation of plan risks to the proper use of annuities, employer-sponsored benefits and determining the best Social Security claiming age, the RICP® provides a wealth of practical information for advisors.

While many advisors are wealth accumulation specialists, there's an urgent demand for practical ways to structure effective retirement income plans. Gaining the RICP® designation will provide Bob’s clients with confidence that he is well-educated in the fields of Social Security income, pension planning, portfolio distribution, Medicare, The Affordable Care Act, required minimum distribution laws, and taxes that today's retirees will face during retirement.

“I feel being a Retirement Income Certified Professional® will allow me to better help my clients understand the complexities involved in creating a retirement plan. When you consider that people are living well into their 80’s and 90’s, you realize even more the importance of one, having a plan that can sustain an income for this timeframe and, two, selecting the best Social Security options for a client’s personal situation,” said Snidow, when asked about the coursework and why he chose this specific designation.
