The Illinois Public Pension Fund Association is the largest association of its type in Illinois. Over 520 police and fire pension funds belong to the IPPFA. The IPPFA was founded in 1985 as a not-for-profit umbrella association to represent the police and fire defined benefit retirement funds throughout the state of Illinois. The goals of the founding members were simple, educate pension fund trustees, and provide legal advice and representation for pension funds and supporting legislation beneficial to Illinois Pension Funds. Today those goals remain unchanged. In 2001 the IPPFA Board of Directors introduced propriety 457, VEMA, and VEBA plans to further insure the retirement security of public safety personnel.
