Terms and Conditions for the CFP Board Find a CFP® Professional Search
Find a CFP® Professional is compiled and published by CFP Board as a reference source about CFP® professionals in the United States. It does not include all CFP® professionals -- only those who chose to be included. It may be used only by (i) members of the public to locate CFP® professionals and obtain information about them, and (ii) individual CFP® professionals or their staff to view their own listings or those of colleagues. CFP Board reserves the right to block your use of this search tool indefinitely should CFP Board determine, in its sole discretion, that you are using it for a different purpose. Except as expressly provided herein, neither Find a CFP® Professional nor any of its data, listings, or other constituent elements may be modified, downloaded, republished, sold, licensed, duplicated, "scraped," or otherwise exploited, in whole or in part. CFP Board expressly prohibits use of this information by individuals or business organizations to offer products or services to CFP® professionals.

All other information disclosed through Find a CFP® Professional regarding a specific CFP® professional has been provided by the CFP® professional and has not been verified by CFP Board. CFP Board is not responsible for the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of the information that a CFP® professional has provided. For example, CFP Board has not verified that the CFP® professional focuses his or her practice in the specific area the CFP® professional has designated. It is your responsibility to ask the CFP® professional about his or her experience.
