The ICMA and ICMA-RC Relationship

In 1972, following four years of effort and with a Ford Foundation grant, ICMA secured approval from the Internal Revenue Service to create a deferred compensation program that would ensure retirement income for ICMA members. ICMA established ICMA-RC as a stand-alone organization and over the past four and a half decades ICMA-RC has grown but its mission has remained focused on helping public sector employees build retirement security.

ICMA is proud to call ICMA-RC our exclusive retirement services partner and to help bring the expertise of the ICMA-RC team to local government leaders and their staffs as they plan for the future.
