History

Founded in 1972 through the assistance of a Ford Foundation grant, ICMA-RC's mission is to help public sector employees build retirement security. It all began when the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) had the vision to create an organization dedicated to the retirement needs of public sector employees, and thus ICMA-RC was formed. ICMA-RC was founded to provide portable retirement benefits for city and county managers, enabling accumulated retirement assets to be transferred between employers. Today, ICMA-RC serves more than a million participant accounts and about 9,000 plans across the country.
