  • Educate retirement plan professionals. 
  • Create a framework of public policy that gives every working American the ability to have a comfortable retirement. 

 ASPPA fulfills these goals by offering its  members extensive educational products and services, paired with a strong advocacy operation that puts us at the center of any legislative debates that could affect what our members do for a living. Our educational opportunities include robust credentialing, certificate and continuing education programs, along with the best lineup of conferences and networking opportunities in the industry.

ASPPA, founded in 1966 as an actuarial organization,has evolved to reflect the many different roles represented in the retirement plan industry. As a result, ASPPA now serves business owners, actuaries, TPAs, record keepers, consultants and more. While our membership is diverse, all are united by their belief in and commitment to the private pension system.
