Robert M. Ryerson

A financial professional with more than three decades of experience, Robert Ryerson works closely with clients in the Freehold, New Jersey, area to meet their financial planning needs. As a Certified Financial Fiduciary (CFF) at New Century Planning, he focuses on retirement income planning, as well as estate administration, regularly assisting his clients with legacy and estate planning. He also advises them on achieving tax efficient retirements, including the use of ROTH conversions. Mr. Ryerson’s many years helping his clients navigate the complexities of retirement planning gave him a deeper understanding of the healthcare costs that retirees face. In 2013, he drew upon this knowledge to co-author the book What You Don’t Know About Retirement Will Hurt You.

Outside of his work at New Century Planning, Robert M. Ryerson also teaches classes on retirement planning at three colleges in New Jersey.  He has delivered several keynote speeches on the often-confusing topic of required minimum distributions. Mr. Ryerson also has shared his financial expertise as a facilitator of online courses for Certified Public Accountants through The Society for Financial Awareness.

In the early 2010s, Mr. Ryerson became concerned about the threat of identity theft after noting the many cybersecurity breaches suffered by major companies. He became a Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist (CITRMS) in 2014. He has since taught identity theft recovery courses at local community colleges. Mr. Ryerson also wrote a book on the topic in 2016 entitled What’s the Deal with Identity Theft: A Plain English Look at Our Fastest Growing Crime.

A graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in economics, Mr. Ryerson began his career in the financial services industry as a stockbroker. He obtained his CFF designation in 1991 and began working as an independent financial planner a few years later. In addition, he is Certified In Long Term Care ( CLTC).
