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.

We invite and encourage your participation - join NIPA today!


NIPA is Growth

“In just two NIPA events, I’ve learned techniques that put us on the path to millions of dollars of new revenue!”

– Mike Bourne, President, Atessa Benefits, Inc.


NIPA is Productivity

“Being a member of NIPA allows you to get involved, to learn a lot about the different types of people in our business, to make a major impact and to share that information with your clients." 

– Trina Gross, APA, QKA, CEO, Acuff & Associates, Inc.


NIPA is Cash Flow

“Being a member of NIPA has accelerated my cash flow significantly. Before joining NIPA I was borrowing money because I was billing clients at the end of the year. After my first Business Management Conference, I switched to quarterly billing. NIPA has helped me improve my cash flow, avoid short term bank loans and grow my business!”

– Bob Chin, President, Abacus Benefit Consultant


NIPA is Life-long Friendships

“To me, NIPA is family. It’s more than a casual connection with my colleagues. You’re making good connections, and these people become friends and even family. It helps so much to have colleagues going through similar struggles. I never feel like I have to reinvent the wheel!”
– Mike Bourne, President, Atessa Benefits, Inc.


“This is a close-knit group of people, and we always have room for new people. You will like being involved with them. It’s good people, smart people, professional people. And you’ll learn so much!”
