Richard J. Carson, President

RICHARD (RICK) CARSON is founder and CEO of Carson Choice Retirement Solutions, Inc., a Registered Investment Advisory firm in Bala Cynwyd, PA. Rick and his company assist corporate clients and individuals with their financial needs including but not limited to employee benefits, life insurance, estate planning, and individual investment planning.

Rick coauthored What Do you Mean, I’m Responsible? with the sole purpose of empowering not only company plan sponsors but also their employees. Most plan sponsors know they have a fiduciary responsibility but seem not to understand the breadth of that responsibility. Over Rick’s thirty years in business, he’s learned that employees of these companies have a different responsibility — to themselves and their own personal retirement. The days of the company taking care of employee retirement, for the most part, are gone! Rick’s goal and gift is to help both employer and employee.

Rick has been a frequent guest on WCAU Radio in Philadelphia, PA, and has given more than thirty financial workshops. He maintains a Series 65 securities license as well as life and health licenses. Rick is also a member of the National Association of Plan Advisors and the Better Business Bureau. On a personal level, Rick has been married for close to thirty-five years. He and his wife, Liz, are grateful parents of two very kind and thoughtful daughters, Emily and Julie. Their golden retriever, Sydney, accompanies Rick to work.
