Certified Senior Advisor

A Certified Senior Advisor is a professional who has received a comprehensive education in the health, financial, and social issues facing seniors. CSA professionals must pass a challenging national exam to prove their knowledge of the issues affecting seniors. It is only after they pass the exam and agree to live up to high ethical and professional standards that they may use the designation Certified Senior Advisor.

The Society of Senior Advisors is the world’s largest membership organization educating and certifying professionals who serve seniors. The Society requires its members to take continuing education emphasizing ethics and volunteer service to seniors, maintaining their certification.

The Society provides its members with updates on leading-edge developments in the field of aging to continually enhance and expand the CSA’s skills in working with seniors.

When you work with a professional who has added the CSA designation to his or her achievements, you know you’re working with someone who has invested time and effort in learning about the things that are important to you.

To become and remain a CSA in good standing, a CSA must sign the CSA Code of Professional Responsibility pledge to adhere to the following principles and standards:
