ELDER PLANNING COUNSELOR DESIGNATION PROGRAM
A quote from Mr. Peter Wouters, RFG., AIAA., ARP., TEP., FLMI., RHU., CFP., CLU., CHFC., ACS., ALHC., CPCA., CHS., AFSI., EPC CIEPS Advisory Council & Faculty Chair
"Anyone interested in developing a specialty and acumen in the unique needs, wants and issues of today's and tomorrow's elder population will find this a very worthwhile program. We are confident that much of what you will learn you will not have picked up elsewhere, certainly not in a format geared to actionable items and developing deep meaningful relationships with elders, beyond the numbers and figuring out how much is enough."
Regardless of your discipline or where you operate, knowing more about the right way to handle elder clients and their issues will only make you better at what you do.
With new Regulations, proper advice and proving value for money is critical to success. An Elder Planning Counselor Designation puts you ahead of the curve.
Feedback From a Current EPC Member
Good afternoon Alex,
I just renewed for another year. Thought I would quickly share a short story regarding the use of EPC knowledge. Short version I asked about this older lady at a small restaurant I go on occasion for lunch.
She would help tidy up and then be served a meal…literally working for her lunch. I was told her spouse was in a nursing home and their modest govt pension for him were redirect there to pay for his room.
She was trying to live on $580 a month, others in the restaurant had been helping to pay her bills. When I got home to my den I sat there thinking something wasn’t right and then I remembered a class on government benefits and specifically GIS which I didn’t think she had applied for.
Long story short we got her hooked up with an advocate through a group called life spin and she is now receiving an extra $950 a month or so plus they back dated so she got an extra $2000 she feels like a queen now. We are also working on getting her some subsidized housing. None of that would have happened if I had not remembered that class held by EPC.
