If you actively advise older clients and are authorised as competent to give financial advice, becoming accredited gives you independent recognition of your knowledge and advice skills, whilst helping older consumers and their families recognise you as an adviser who can help them.

Achieving the Later Life Adviser Accreditation (LLAA) and becoming a member of the Society is an endorsement of your skills and experience of working with, and understanding the needs of, older people and their families and carers.

The LLAA is awarded to the individual adviser rather than their firm so, subject to specific conditions, the LLAA is transferable if you change firm.

You can find out more details on the following pages:

Doing the Accreditation has really helped me to grow into the specialism of later life advice and it has been extremely valuable to my business.  In this area where we deal with many At Risk clients I think it is really important to have the Accreditation as it demonstrates a commitment to working in this specialist area.
