ICMA created the ICMA Retirement Corporation (ICMA RC) as a separate, not-for-profit organization in 1972. With the assistance of a Ford Foundation grant, ICMA RC was chartered to provide a portable retirement plan for municipal managers. Since 1972, ICMA RC has grown dramatically, serving government employers nationwide. Participants now include the full spectrum of public employees.
