Count on NCPERS for information, knowledge, education, and powerful advocacy to protect the financial security of the retirees who depend on you.
NCPERS is the leading advocate for public pensions on Capitol Hill and in federal regulatory agencies. To achieve our goal of preserving retirement benefits for public employees, our staff maintains strong working relationships with Members of Congress, Congressional staffers and regulatory agency officials. Legislators are contacted numerous times throughout the year in order to educate them on the positions NCPERS has taken on proposed legislation and regulations, and our officers testify at House and Senate hearings, offering the views and experience of more than 500 pension plans nationwide.
NCPERS has been leading the charge on a number of significant issues for the benefit of public fund members, including spearheading efforts to implement the Healthcare Enhancement for Public Safety (HELPS) Retirees legislation that was enacted in 2006. HELPS Retirees allows retired public safety employees to use up to $3000 from their defined benefit or other qualified retirement plan to pay for the cost of healthcare or long-term care premiums on a tax free basis.
