NLC’s Public Sector Retirement Initiative is a resource for elected officials to help them navigate the complexities of retirement and healthcare planning and funding for the municipal workforce. The Initiative is sponsored by ICMA-RC, an NLC Capstone Corporate Partner and non-profit independent financial services corporation focused on providing retirement plans and related services for over a million public sector participant accounts and approximately 9,000 retirement plans. 

This initiative features a series focused on strengthening the capacity of city leaders to ensure healthy public sector retirement outcomes. We start with the premise that desired goals for retiree savings, pension plans and other post-employment benefits balance municipal workforce/retiree needs with city fiscal responsibility.
