Retirement Planning

What is a Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®)?

The RICP® is a professional designation for financial advisors. Having the RICP® designation means the advisor has a specialized education in retirement income, and is committed to professional and ethical best practices.


Why is the RICP® different?

Typically, financial advisors are trained to help clients accumulate wealth. But what happens in retirement? Clients need to ensure that the wealth they’ve spent decades building will last through retirement, and maybe even beyond.

The RICP® is a mark of certification that acknowledges that your advisor has the knowledge to help you enjoy a secure and sustainable retirement. According to the awarding body, The American College, only 7.5% of U.S Financial Advisors have an RICP® designation.

Kate E. Eiland, Senior Vice President – Investments, and Elise L. Kausen, Senior Vice President – Investments, hold the Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) designation.
