Thrivent’s Schenk earns Retirement Income Certified Professional designation
QUINCY — Joshua Schenk, financial consultant with Thrivent, a diversified financial services organization, recently earned the Retirement Income Certified Professional® designation granted by The American College of Financial Services.
The RICP® designation equips financial professionals with the knowledge they need to effectively manage the transition from asset accumulation during a client’s working years to asset decumulation in retirement. They demonstrate value by delivering smart strategies for creating secure and sustainable income for a client’s retirement. Topics include retirement income planning, best practices in claiming Social Security, risk management, distribution strategies and more.
To receive the RICP designation, candidates must successfully complete the RICP education program, pass the course exams and meet experience requirements and ethics standards. In addition, they must fulfill continuing education requirements to maintain the RICP designation every two years.
In a press release, Schenk said, “Many of my clients have worked for decades in order to plan the retirement of their dreams. As they prepare for this next chapter, they’re looking for a professional they can count on who can advise them on the most critical decisions associated with their retirement. With the additional training I received through this program, I’ll be able to provide my clients with the support they need to feel confident – and secure – about their future.”
Schenk has served clients for the last seven years.
