Known as the PPA, few pieces of legislation adopted since the initial passage of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act some four decades ago have had as big an impact on our industry and daily work. Collected below is some of our special coverage marking the anniversary of the PPA and exploring the ongoing impacts of the landmark retirement law.
