I have my CFP and my CRPC. I’ve thought of dropping the CRPC and just maintaining the CFP. Thoughts?

You're thinking too much. If you don't see the value of something, stop doing it. Focus on value to clients and prospects.

Why,? It doesn't cost anything to keep it.

I am a CFP. I just had to google what the heck a CRPC even is. So many (in my opinion, worthless) designations, it’s hard to keep track.

Yea man lowers the CFP , clients don't know the difference though. I dropped the AAMS, just use CFP.

ST, being a little snarky with another posts thought process. I won’t drop it. I may drop CRPC. We got ours in almost matching years. Strange

Same here, following...

Yeah there is a renewal fee. And honestly, now that I have them and the education, there is no real value to the client. So I should drop them both?

I got my CRPC in 2009 and CFP in 2014 and still have both. I kept the CRPC and have never had anyone mention it. My thinking was to keep it and the people who know designations will be impressed by the CFP and the people that don’t will be impressed by the string of letters behind my name.

OP why would you drop the CFP? In this industry people knowing that you have the knowledge is just as necessary as having it. CFP gives you the same distinction from other “advisors” that a CPA gives between accountants and bookkeepers.

The crpc is like 95 every 2 years why get rid lol
