NAMIC offers PFMM Emeritus status for those individuals who are retired or nearing retirement, but who do not wish to relinquish the certification they have earned and maintained over the years. PFMM Emeritus status does not have to be renewed and is valid as long as the individual does not desire to use the original certification designation.
In order to qualify for PFMM Emeritus status, an individual must:
Hold active status in the PFMM program (current annual fee has been paid and certification has not expired due to not attending a qualifying maintenance event);
Submit an application with one-time payment of $150;
Be retired (or within one year of retirement) from the farm mutual insurance industry; and
Meet at least two of the following:
Be 60 years of age or older
Have 30+ years of industry experience
Held the PFMM designation for 10+ years
Once Emeritus status is granted, an individual must always depict certification using the word “Emeritus” in conjunction with the designation (i.e. John Doe, PFMM Emeritus).
In addition to the ability to retain PFMM certification into retirement, an individual can expect to receive the following benefits with PFMM Emeritus status:
PFMM Emeritus certificate;
Further registration discounts for NAMIC’s Annual Convention and Farm Mutual Forum; and
Invitation to complimentary roundtable breakfast at NAMIC’s Annual Convention
An individual interested in obtaining PFMM Emeritus status must submit an application within 30 calendar days of the his/her current certification expiration date.
Submit application, supporting documentation and payment to firstname.lastname@example.org or:

Once the application has been reviewed by NAMIC, an email will be sent to the applicant to notify him/her if PFMM Emeritus status has been approved, or if additional information is required.
Once approved, the applicant will be mailed a new certificate and may begin to use PFMM Emeritus status for registration discounts.
