ASPPA — the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries — and its affiliates, ACOPA, NAPA and NTSA, combine efforts to create the premier national organization(s) for career retirement plan professionals. The membership is comprised of the many disciplines supporting retirement income management and benefits policy. Members are part of the diversified, technical, and highly regulated benefits industry. ASPPA represents the most committed individuals of the profession—those who have made a career of retirement plan and pension policy work.
The purpose of ASPPA is twofold:
• To educate all retirement plan and benefits professionals
• To preserve and enhance the employer-based retirement system
Based in the nation’s capital, ASPPA is a non-profit professional organization acting on behalf of its 16,000+ members to improve retirement income policy. In pursuit of these goals, ASPPA offers extensive educational opportunities for its members—from professional credentialing and certificate programs to training and continuing education. ASPPA Government Affairs department keeps a close watch on all legislative and regulatory activities affecting retirement benefits and pension policy.
ASPPA was founded in 1966 originally as an actuarial organization. Since then, ASPPA has carefully tracked the changing needs of the retirement plan industry. As a result, ASPPA has expanded and diversified its membership to include all types of pension professionals--from actuaries, consultants, and administrators to insurance professionals, financial advisors, accountants, attorneys, and human resource managers. Embracing diversity, the 16,000+ members of ASPPA are united by their commitment to the private pension system.
