I watched a webinar replay but the CE quiz is not appearing in my profile's CE Credit tab.

The quiz will only show up in your A4A profile's CE Credit tab if you view the replay for an uninterrupted 50 minutes for a session approved for one credit hour or 100 minutes for a session approved for two CE credit hours, without adjusting the time ticker. You cannot pause, rewind, or fast forward the replay.

If the session is listed as pending CE credit, the CE quiz will not yet be accessible.

A4A a few years ago used to send an email news digest daily. I no longer receive that. Why?

 

We stopped doing it in 2012 because no one wants another daily email.

 

A4A doesn't want to be part of the daily din.

 

We'll send out an email once a month. We may move back to once a week when we have more resources. When something important is happening, you will hear from us.

 

How often does A4A send out a digest email?

 

We'll send out an email digest once a month, sometimes more often. It depends on the news and markets. When something important is happening, you will hear from us.

 

How do I make sure I receive your email newsletter with the digest of A4A content?

 

While logged into A4A, click on "Account" in upper right.

 

In your account profile, click the "Subscriptions" tab and make sure it says "yes" to receiving weekly and daily digests.

My annual A4A PayPal subscription payment failed. How do I update my PayPal account so the payment processes on the next attempt?

There are two steps to complete within your PayPal account.

1.       Log in to the PayPal account used to create the subscription and add a new funding source.

2.       Click on the 'Profile' subtab.

3.       Choose the 'Credit Cards' link from the Financial Information column.

4.       Click 'Add'.

1.       Click this link to access your A4A Subscription Details: http://bit.ly/2gCwgqc.

2.   Under 'Subscription Funding Source' choose your new funding source from one of the drop-downs and save.


How can I view the funding source linked to my PayPal Advisors4Advisors annual subscription?

1.      Log in to the PayPal account used to create the subscription and at the top-right there should be a gear icon, that’ll give you the option to access your Profile and/or settings page.

2.      Click on the 'Profile' subtab, and on the next page, locate the My Money area.

4.  Click on the Advisors4Advisors subscription to edit it, and you can then view the current funding source.


The credit card I used to create my annual A4A subscription has expired. How do I update my card so the payment processes on my annual renewal date?


A4A members must contact us by phone at 516-333-0066 x219 to request a change to their subscription billing information. This is because of the way that VISA handles the security. For security purposes, the card details are stored in the VISA cloud (not our server). We are then constrained by the way that the VISA system allows these changes, and for subscriptions, the consumer can not make these changes proactively.

 

I'm CFP or an IMCA designee and would like to take the Advisors4Advisors Ethics course. How do I sign-up?


Please click here to sign-up for the Advisors4Advisors Ethics Course.


I'm a CFP and just completed the ethics course
and printed the letter for my files. Do you report this automatically to the CFP Board or am I required to send them the letter directly?


We submit the completed CFP certificants' Ethics CE credit to the CFP Board in monthly batches. Once the CFP Board has processed your Ethics CE credit, you will receive an email from the CFP Board detailing the continuing education hours that have been credited to your CFP account.


I'm an IMCA designee and just completed the ethics course and printed the letter for my files. Do you report this automatically to IMCA or am I required to send them the letter directly?


IMCA designees report programs accepted for CE credit online via your own IMCA account, using the approval letter that will appear in your A4A Account's CE Credit tab upon successful of the Ethics test. The A4A approval letter is the certificate of completion and already contains the unique IMCA-assigned program ID number, so IMCA designees can report the program online with ease. Please remember that designees must maintain physical evidence of completing CE programs in the event they are selected for audit.


How do I get back to the Ethics class if I'm interrupted?


Upon your purchase of the A4A Ethics course, you should have received a system email with the subject: "Advisors4Advisors - Thank you for purchasing our 2016 CFP Ethics CE course for A4A members.", which contains the unique link to access the Ethics course.
