Chartered Retirement Plans SpecialistSM - CRPS®

CRPS Professional Designation Program

The CRPS® is a graduate-level designation program for experienced financial advisors who wish to specialize in retirement plan creation and administration.

As retirement plan options evolve and tax complexities increase, many companies seek professional plan administrators to design, install, and maintain their company retirement plans. Firms of all sizes recognize the unique skills needed to implement and oversee these internal retirement plans—skills within your reach with the CRPS® designation. Your CRPS® mark will set you apart from other advisors with the knowledge to recommend implementation techniques that can be executed into well-structured, company-appropriate retirement plans. Plus, you’ll be able to effectively administer retirement plans for businesses and their employees.

Upon graduation, CRPS® designees receive three hours of credit toward an MS Degree in Personal Financial Planning.
