The Retirement Income Industry Association announced Monday that it had started a  retirement income planning educational program for financial advisers.

The program, "Delivering Retirement Income Solutions," is an overview of the key risks and issues retirees face. It offers guidance to help advisers uncover client needs so they can deliver the right investment and risk management solutions.

This is intended to be the first in a series of programs that will underpin accreditation of financial advisers as retirement income specialists.
