NTSAA Changes Name

The National Tax-deferred Savings Association (NTSA) maintains the same core mission as its predecessor.

Formerly the National Tax Sheltered Accounts Association (NTSAA), the NTSA works to ensure the health and sustainability of America’s public-sector and not-for-profit retirement systems.

“There’s a retirement crisis in America and while the national scene can sometimes overshadow our efforts, we haven’t lost sight of how important it is to protect the vitality of our public-sector retirement system. I think our new name only enhances that sentiment and our ability to help public education, government and not-for-profit employees retire successfully,” says NTSA executive director Chris DeGrassi.

The NTSA is a sister organization of the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA) tasked with supporting the public-sector retirement system and the 403(b) and 457 marketplace. In addition to working with retiree stakeholders, policy makers and legislators to address issues and design retirement plans that improve employee outcomes, NTSA also provides education, professional development and information resources.

“Every working American deserves tools to help them retire successfully and our name change simply reflects, to a better degree, what we do and why protecting the public-sector retirement system is our prime directive,” explains DeGrassi.

NTSA will host its annual 403(b) Summit on June 22 to 24, 2014, at the Washington Hilton in Washington D.C.
