ICMA-RC is a non-profit, independent financial services corporation focused on providing retirement plans and related services for over a million public sector participant accounts.

Founded in 1972, ICMA-RC’s mission is to help public sector employees build retirement security.  The organization’s mission is delivered through its RealizeRetirement® approach in which ICMA-RC representatives actively engage participants in their retirement programs, help them build their asset base, and help them realize their retirement goals through a comprehensive retirement planning strategy.

We’ve been working with people who serve their communities for almost half a century and believe we do it better than anyone else – because it’s the focus of what we do – we help public sector employees build retirement security.

Commitment to the Public Sector

More than $950,000 awarded in scholarships to children and spouses of fallen public employees

ICMA-RC’s mission is to help public sector employees build retirement security. ICMA-RC and its associates are dedicated to serving those who serve our communities, and our service extends beyond our clients to include the communities in which we operate. As a leading provider for public sector retirement plans and related services, we understand the importance of providing the most effective tools and resources for our clients. Since 2010, ICMA-RC, in partnership with our clients, has received more than 100 awards and honors for our education and communication programs.

In 2001, we founded the ICMA-RC Public Employee Memorial Scholarship Fund (ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship Fund) to honor local and state government employees who lost their lives in service to their communities. To date, the ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded over $950,000 in scholarships to more than 250 surviving children and spouses of fallen public employees.

In 2007, ICMA-RC established the Center for State and Local Government Excellence, created as a resource to local and state governments as they attract and nurture the best workforce.

In addition to our strong partnership with the National League of Cities, we also partner with a number of public sector focused organizations, including the International City/County Management Association, Government Finance Officers Association, National Association of County Administrators, the International Hispanic Network and the National Forum for Black Public Administrators.
