The American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA) along with — ASEA, NAPA, NTSA, and PSCA — comprise the American Retirement Association, the premier national organization for retirement plan professionals in the industry. ASPPA is a non-profit professional organization based in the Washington, D.C. area.

ASPPA, founded in 1966 as an actuarial organization, has evolved to reflect many different roles represented in the retirement plan industry. As a result, ASPPA’s membership now includes business owners, third-party administrators, record keepers, consultants, and more. While ASPPA’s membership is diverse, it is united by a belief in and commitment to the private pension system.

ASPPA offers its 6900+ members extensive educational products and services, paired with a strong advocacy operation that puts it at the center of any legislative debates that could affect what its members do for a living. ASPPA’s educational opportunities include robust credentialing, certificate, and continuing education programs, along with the best lineup of conferences and networking opportunities in the industry.
