No you need to work on getting clients and aum. AAMS won’t pay your bills

If it does not affect your production and Edward Jones will pay for it, go ahead and get it. Just be aware, the AAMS means nothing to clients. However, if you do feel the need to further your education A relevant certification would be the CFP, CFA or CPA.

If you’re just looking to add letters behind your name, sure it’s not going to be that difficult. But in the grand scheme of things, the designation is a not too relevant in our industry. If you’re trying to get a designation that will help boost clients confidence in you or display your expertise, I would recommend the CFP,CPA or CFA.

Yeah it’s easy

^ also true. I got at level 2 almost level 3.

Fa3 - jones pays for it.

^however, most EJ guys could probably pass without cracking a book.

What does that say about the designation then.

Need advice: I have a young child who’s father has been mostly absent. Sadly, he passed last month and just found out he did have a life insurance policy with my child as the beneficiary. I was told that I can also claim his SS benefits for her as his only beneficiary until age 19. The question is what do I do with this money?? Can it be put into a UTMA account? I quite literally know nothing about these types of payouts and the rules associated with them.
