Clayton Ma passes ERPA II exam!

Nova 401(k) Associates would like to congratulate Clayton, a 401k Specialist, on passing the ERPA II. This was Clayton’s first attempt at passing the ERPA II exam, and he reported that he studied about twenty hours for the exam.  “The most difficult area of the exam dealt with IRS Determination Letters.  The most interesting parts were centered around IRS and DOL correction programs.  Overall, studying for this exam has enhanced my administration knowledge, particularly around correction programs and distributions.”

Good luck to Clayton on the DC 1 & 2 exams!!
