Your IFPS Certification is valid for a period of five (5) years, upon which time you will need to renew your certification. IFPS will send you recertification reminders in the forms of e-mails, letters, and postcards; however, it is your responsibility to submit the required paperwork by the deadline. If you do not submit the paperwork by the deadline you may be required to retake the test and you can no longer use the certification designation after your name.
