403(b)wise Advisor Directory Application Request

Thank you for your interest in being listed in the 403(b)wise Advisor Directory. The minimum designation for inclusion in the Directory is a CFP®.

The annual listing fee is $695 for individuals, or $495 for members of the Garrett Planning Network, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors, or the XY Planning Network.

Please note that inclusion in the directory is a 3-step process — once this request form has been approved, you will be asked to complete your full application. If and when this full application is approved, you will have the opportunity to submit additional information for your directory listing with your annual payment.

Please allow a week for processing of your application request.
