About American Retirement Association
The American Retirement Association has a long and storied reputation that dates back to its founding in 1966 as the American Society of Pension Actuaries. Today its 20,000+ members and four premier retirement industry associations 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.
Based in the Washington, D.C. area, the American Retirement Association is a non-profit professional organization with two major goals: to educate all retirement plan and benefits professionals, and to create a framework of policy that gives every working American the ability to have a comfortable retirement.
The American Retirement Association is comprised of four premier retirement industry associations; the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA), the ASPPA College of Pension Actuaries (ACOPA), the National Asso...ciation of Plan Advisors (NAPA), and the National Tax-deferred Savings Association (NTSA).
