What is NIPA?

The National Institute of Pension Administrators (NIPA) is a national association representing the retirement and employee benefit plan administration profession. It was founded with the idea of bringing together professional benefit administrators and other interested parties to encourage greater dialogue, cooperation and educational opportunities. NIPA’s goal is to improve the quality and efficiency of plan administration.


From its beginning in 1983, the founding concepts and specific purpose of NIPA is to educate and train plan administrators. NIPA started as an outgrowth of an eight person work study group. It is now a 1000-member national organization. NIPA's educational forums include courses, workshops and seminars focusing on the various aspects of plan administration. 


NIPA has come a long way in a short time. The growth of the organization is a direct result of the proliferation of increasingly complex statutory mandates and the need to develop and maintain high professional standards in employee benefit plan consulting and administration services. To reach its goals, NIPA offers its members a variety of educational pursuits and programs as outlined on this website.
