Since retirements today can last up to 30 years, Social Security is increasingly important to help retirees not outlive their money. That’s why we developed the NSSA Advisor program—to help advisors teach clients everything they need to know about Social Security, but may have been reluctant to ask.
CINCINNATI, Ohio (PRWEB) November 10, 2017
National Social Security Advisor (NSSA®) has set its 2018 Social Security education courses schedule for professional advisors nationwide.
The NSSA Social Security education and certificate program will be offered in 19 cities this year, said Marc Kiner, partner at Premier Social Security Consulting of Cincinnati, which teaches the program.
“Baby boomers turn 65 years old at the rate of 10,000 a day, yet the majority of boomers know little about how to maximize their Social Security income,” said Kiner.
“Since retirements today can last up to 30 years, Social Security is increasingly important to help retirees not outlive their money. That’s why we developed the NSSA program—to help advisors teach clients everything they need to know about Social Security, but may have been reluctant to ask.”
About 76 million Americans are classified as baby boomers.
Premier announced a tuition rate increase for 2018, with a discount for registrations made before December 31. Projected tuition for the live class after Dec. 31 will be $995, with web-based and on-demand classes at $695.
Premier also provides education options that include private, on-site classes for organizations that need to provide in-house Social Security training to multiple professional advisors.
Premier’s gold standard support is being enhanced for 2018, said Kiner. Support will include marketing videos, newsletters, PowerPoint presentations and much more.
Professional advisors such as certified public accountants, insurance agents, financial advisors and enrolled agents need to learn the Social Security system in order to counsel clients on how to maximize Social Security income, said Kiner. Instruction takes a full day. NSSA awards an NSSA certificate to those who take the course and pass an assessment. The National Social Security Association has certified more than 1,500 advisors since the program began in 2013.
Eight professional education credits (CPE) are available to advisors attending a live class.
Advisors who take the course can contact Premier partner and Social Security expert Jim Blair, a career Social Security administrator, any time with questions. Premier also offers two to four Social Security-topic webinars each month. Webinar topics include: new Social Security topics; Social Security-related articles; case studies; Social Security options software; marketing strategies; and advisor questions.
Live NSSA Advisor classes will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the following cities:
Jan. 26, March 15, June 22, Sept.18, Dec. 4, Cincinnati; Feb. 15, Nov. 20, Orlando, Fla.; March 27, Dallas, Texas; March 29, San Diego; April 26, Oct. 18, Cleveland; May 1, New York City; May 15, Seattle; June 12, Pittsburgh; June 20, Atlanta; June 27, Chicago; July 11, Charlotte, N.C.; August 23, Troy, Mich; Aug. 30, Kansas City; Sept. 20, St. Louis; Oct. 4, Washington, D.C.; Oct. 31, Louisville, Ky.; Nov. 2, Houston; and Nov. 30, Los Angeles.
2018 webinars will be held on Jan. 19, 23; Feb. 12; March 12; April 5; May 3; June 18; July 23, Aug. 20; Oct. 19, 29; Dec. 14, Dec. 17.
Kiner, a 37-year certified public accountant who sold his CPA firm to concentrate on Social Security education, and Jim Blair, a 35-year veteran of the Social Security Administration, joined forces seven years ago to help baby boomers understand and maximize their Social Security benefits.
“Maximizing Social Security income has become increasingly important for many people’s retirement portfolios so they don’t outlive their money,” said Blair. “NSSA advisors are better educated about Social Security and equipped to help their clients make wise decisions about Social Security.”
A married couple can leave as much as $150,000 on the table in Social Security benefits by not accessing the program correctly based on their ages, health and life expectancy and not coordinating spousal benefits, said Kiner.
