Help Out IPPFA
In addition to the support the IPPFA receives from its members, we also rely on the support of companies that can provide products and services to the IPPFA pension community.
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: to educate pension fund trustees and to 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.
Corporate Membership is open to those companies that can provide products and services to the IPPFA pension community. Your sponsorship with the IPPFA brings you visibility in the marketplace and offers you member-to-member access to pension professionals.
