NPPC believes every American should be able to retire with dignity. Across the country, millions of public employees rely on their defined benefit pensions to ensure they can retire with security. It is NPPC’s mission to protect and advance the benefits of America’s hard-working public employees who deliver the services our communities rely on.

We know that there is no one more interested in strengthening the public pensions system than the public employees who are counting on pensions to retire. After all, public pensions are the only source of retirement for 30% of public employees since they do not receive Social Security.

Founded in 2007, NPPC remains a leading voice on the importance of defined benefit plans. Working with a network of national and state-based organizations, NPPC continues its mission to educate policymakers and the general public on the impact of pensions, not just for the public worker, but for the community and economy at large.
