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.  

Resources for Cities

Commitment to the Public Sector

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.

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 2015, we joined in honoring and celebrating with our public safety officials from around the globe as a sponsor of the 2015 World Police & Fire Games.

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.

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.
