We are proud to announce that our own David Reyes was selected by National Social Security Association as NSSA’s Advisor of the Year for his advocacy to educate retirees on maximizing Social Security income.
The award was announced by Marc Kiner, board member of the National Social Security Association (NSSA). Kiner is also a partner at Premier Social Security Consulting of Cincinnati, which teaches NSSA Social Security education courses to professional advisors across the nation and awards the NSSA Advisor accreditation to advisors who take the course and pass a certification exam.
“David Reyes is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for Social Security education,” said Kiner. “He educates many professional and public groups each year, including CPAs and attorneys on Social Security and retirement planning.” (PRWeb Press Release)
In the interview, David said, “What got most baby boomers to where they are today is not necessarily what will get them to where they need to go to succeed for tomorrow,” said Reyes. “Retirement is a big transition. Most clients who are great savers are not necessarily great investors. If you make mistakes during retirement and retirement income planning, they can be catastrophic, lifetime mistakes.
“We tell clients ‘we retire every day; you are going to retire once.’ Make sure you have the right advisor who is an expert in all aspects of retirement planning. This is what motivates me—people need help.”
Congratulations, David — a distinguished award well deserved!
