The American Retirement Association, a non-profit professional association, has a long and storied reputation that dates back to its founding in 1966 as the American Society of Pension Actuaries. Today, its 25,700+ members include every type of pension professional – from business owners, actuaries, consultants, and administrators, to insurance professionals, financial advisors, accountants, attorneys, and human resource managers. While American Retirement Association members come from all corners of the country, representing every part of the industry, they are all united by their belief in and commitment to the private pension system.
The American Retirement Association is comprised of five premier retirement industry organizations: the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA), the American Society of Enrolled Actuaries (ASEA), the National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA), the National Tax-deferred Savings Association (NTSA), and the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA).
The American Retirement Association’s mission is to empower retirement professionals to build a stronger workplace retirement system for Americans through information, education, and advocacy.
