The Voice for Public Pensions

2016 PPCC Standards Awards Application Process Is Now Open

October 17, 2016

2016 PPCC Application

The Public Pension Coordinating Council (PPCC) is a coalition of three associations that represent public retirement systems covering the vast majority of public employees in the US:
•    National Association of State Retirement Administrators (NASRA)
•    National Council on Teacher Retirement (NCTR)
•    National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems (NCPERS)

The Public Pension Standards are intended reflect minimum expectations for public retirement system management and administration, as well as serve as a benchmark by which all defined benefit public plans should be measured. The retirement systems and the state and local governments that sponsor them are encouraged to meet these standards. 
The Standards are separated into the Administrative Standard and the Funding Standard. A system may qualify and receive a Recognition Certificate for either the Administrative or Funding Standard. A system that qualifies for both certificates will be awarded the Public Pension Coordinating Council Standards Award.
A fee of $100.00 is required to defray the costs of administering the program. The online award application is accessible by first visiting the PPCC application page for information and to register. 
Please complete the application by Friday, November 18, 2016. The application process will be closed after that date. The earlier you send in your application, the earlier you will receive your certificate.
