IRA expert Ed Slott has joined the American College of Financial Services faculty as professor of practice. He will contribute to the college’s Retirement Income Certified Professional program and support its faculty focused on retirement distribution planning.
Slott, a CPA, is president and founder of Ed Slott and Co., which provides IRA expertise and analysis to financial advisors, institutions and consumers.
The RICP coursework is intended to help advisors to understand and execute “sustainable retirement income strategies” that include “best practices in Social Security claiming, evaluating and addressing risks faced in retirement [and] planning for long-term care needs,” the College said in a statement.
“Ed Slott has educated millions on the second half of retirement planning — how to best help clients distribute their hard-earned retirement savings and navigate potential tax pitfalls,” said George Nichols III, president and CEO of the college, in a statement. “Ed has a unique ability to communicate IRA complexities in comment-sense language.”
Slott is a regular presenter on IRA and estate planning strategies at industry events. He created Ed Slott’s Elite IRA Advisor Group, which provides to its members ongoing continuing education on advanced retirement account and tax planning laws.
