What is a Registered Social Security Analyst?

RSSAs are an elite group of business professionals specially trained to help Americans maximize their Social Security benefits.

Experts in Social Security

Registered Social Security Analysts have studied the complex laws and rules of Social Security – and have passed the national RSSA Competency Exam administered by the National Association of Registered Social Security Analysts.

Become a Trusted Advisor

RSSAs like you can help their clients receive tens of thousands of dollars or more in additional Social Security benefits. Once you become a RSSA, you will be well-equipped to guide people through the complex considerations in their claiming strategies, providing advice and comfort. RSSAs help individuals and couples understand how to make decisions about when to retire, how to claim spousal benefits, and how to navigate Social Security regulations to maximize their benefits.
