The National Social Security Association has selected David Stryzewski, president of Sound Planning Group and SPG Advisors in Kirkland, as the National Social Security Advisors (NSSA) Advisor of the Year.

The award was announced by Marc Kiner, board member of the National Social Security Association. Kiner is also a partner at Premier Social Security Consulting of Cincinnati, which teaches NSSA Social Security education courses to professional advisors across the nation and awards the NSSA certificate to advisors who take the course and pass an assessment.

“David was certified as a NSSA Advisor two years ago, and has run with the concept of expanding Social Security education through local colleges in his area,” Kiner said. “He’s a Social Security education advocate and teaches adult education courses on Social Security and Principles of Retirement Planning. He also mentors 20 NSSA advisors on topics ranging from Social Security to retirement income planning.”

Stryzewski has authored a Social Security workbook that is taught at various college campuses across the country. He is working on a retirement book called, Longevity is Killing Us, slated for publication in 2017.

Stryzewski was appointed as CEO of his father’s insurance agency, Sound Planning Group, in 2010, and recently founded an independent Registered Investment Advisory firm called SPG Advisors, LLC. Between the two firms, they serve over 2,000 active clients. Sound Planning Group was named the “Best of Kirkland” in 2015 and 2016 for insurance and financial services. The firm has 2,000 clients.

“Many couples we serve will receive more than $1 million in joint income from their Social Security benefits alone,” he said. “As a full-service advisor with a fiduciary obligation to serve my clients best interests, I believe providing Social Security education and recommendations is essential to building a coordinated retirement plan.”

The National Social Security Association has awarded certificates to more than 1,000 advisors nationwide since 2013. Premier offered NSSA Social Security classes to financial advisors, CPAs, insurance agents, enrolled agents and other professional advisors in more than 25 cities nationwide this year.
