choose-advisor-airline-expertiseWhen looking for an advisor to help you plan for retirement, there are a lot of factors you need to consider. One factor that many crewmembers don’t think about is a potential advisor’s expertise in the airline industry. 

I don’t have to tell you that crewmembers are a special group. Your union negotiates the best contract they can for you with the airline, and your retirement benefits are a big piece of your total compensation pie. 

When it comes to managing their retirement plans, some crewmembers choose to go into retirement with a “self-management” mindset. Or if they opt for professional management, many go with a well-known advisor name — but this advisor may not know anything about the nuances of retirement benefits for airline crewmembers.

Our Airline Expertise

RAA specializes in helping crewmembers plan for their retirement. We bring unparalleled retirement planning experience and expertise as it relates to airline benefits. Unlike general advisors who don’t have a specialty, we focus specifically on crewmembers and dedicate ourselves to understanding their contracts and benefits.  This has given crewmembers and their families retirement peace of mind for over 25 years.

Our relationship managers have an average of 20 years of experience in the industry and 10 years of experience working at RAA.  We have worked with thousands of crewmembers who have retired successfully, so there is rarely a life or retirement situation we have not assisted other crewmembers with.

You have many options when choosing an advisor to help you plan your retirement. The key question: Do you want to work with a “jack of all trades” advisor without a specialty, or an advisor who specializes in working with airline crewmembers?  

The right choice is clear. As we like to say here at RAA, it is our family taking care of yours.
