May Is Disability Insurance Awareness Month

The Foundation for Financial Service Professionals has announced the recipients of the Kenneth Black Jr. Journal Author Awards for articles published in the Journal of Financial Service Professionals in 2023. Since 1988, the Foundation has recognized the top three articles published in a specific volume (six issues within the same calendar year) with these annual awards. 

The Foundation was established by the leadership of the Society of Financial Service Professionals (FSP) in 1982. FSP is the professional development division of NAIFA. The award program, named for Kenneth Black Jr., PhD, CLU, who served as the Journal’s editor from 1959 through 2001, recognizes contributions that serve to build the body of knowledge in the financial services field. 

The winning articles in the Journal are selected by an independent panel of judges based on originality of research, clarity of writing, timeliness of the subject matter, and appropriateness for the Journal’s readership. Honoraria of $1,500, $1,000, and $500 are awarded for first, second, and third place, respectively. 

This year’s recipients are as follows:

First Place: Steve Parrish, JD, AEP, RICP, ChFC, CLU, for “Snowbirding: Financial Considerations of Owning Two Residences in Retirement,” in September 2023
