NTSAA Changes Name

January 15, 2014 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - The National Tax-deferred Savings Association (NTSA) has debuted.

Formerly the National Tax Sheltered Accounts Association (NTSAA), NTSA’s core mission remains the same—to ensure the health and sustainability of America’s public-sector retirement system.

“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 and 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 National Tax-deferred Savings Association (NTSA) is a sister organization of the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA), focused on the public-sector retirement system. In addition to working with public sector 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.
