The Institute of Business & Finance (IBF) recently awarded Joyce Blonskij with the estate planning designation, CES™ (Certified Estate and Trust Specialist™).

Over $50 trillion is expected to pass from one generation to another during the next half century.
CES™ certification requires mastery of different types of trusts, ownership rules, disinheritance, probate, pay-on-death accounts, insurance, spousal restrictions, special needs, conservatorships, and managing assets. According to IBF, “There are a large number of estate planning books and courses offered. The CES™ program one of the only courses that covers all aspects of estate planning including what needs to be done after death.”
The student must pass three comprehensive exams and a written case study as well as adhere to the IBF Code of Ethics and IBF Standards of Practice as well as fulfill annual continuing education requirements. The CES™ program is designed for brokers and advisors who have clients in their 60s or older as well as those who may be providing care to an aging relative.
