The ICMA and MissionSquare Retirement 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. Over the last year, ICMA-RC explored creating a new identity that both honors the company's history and reflects its vision for the future — to become MissionSquare Retirement, the most trusted retirement plan provider for those serving their communities.

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