What People Are Saying

See why more advisors are earning their RMA certification every day.

Up until now there hasn’t been any formal training available to teach advisors the important differences between planning for accumulation and planning for retirement income. The RMA program is changing that. They developed a specialized curriculum one studies to become an RMA, or Retirement Management Advisor®. The material is fabulous and offers a tremendous amount of insight into the difference between accumulating assets and ‘decumulating’ assets.”

Dana Anspach, CFP®, RMA®, Kolbe Certified Consultant

Founder, Sensible Money, LLC

"I believe this course and designation brings a fresh, updated and innovative view of retirement planning for today's day and age. This program has also helped me look at retirement planning in a different light and scope of structuring plans. It has made an impact almost immediately for me, my clients, and my business."

Roger Mussa, CPWA®, RMA®, CPFA

First Vice President, Wealth Management Advisor; Mussa Wealth Management of Merrill Lynch
