The Voice of Public Plan Sponsors

A Network of Plan Experts

The National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators, Inc. (NAGDCA) is the premier provider of information and networking opportunities for plan sponsors and service providers of government-sponsored defined contribution retirement plans. Our major events and initiatives including our annual conference, The Public Retirement Research Lab, and National Retirement Security Month help to create successful retirement security outcomes for public plan participants across the country.

Data Center

In 2020, NAGDCA and the Employee Benefits Research Institute (EBRI) launched the Public Retirement Research Lab (PRRL). This collaborative project creates a first-of-its-kind database for public sector defined contribution retirement plan information, which will be used as the primary source of information for cutting-edge retirement research. NAGDCA members who authorize their participation in the PRRL will receive access to the data through our online benchmarking data portal.

Legislative Action

NAGDCA employs a full-time government affairs director to advocate for your interests in federal legislative and regulatory matters. In the past year, NAGDCA has successfully lobbied Congress to prevent harmful provisions from being included in the federal tax reform bill, and met with key staff on both the House and Senate Finance Committees to lobby for the inclusion of NAGDCA’s Legislative Priorities in future laws. NAGDCA is currently seeking to fill the government affairs director position. Click here to view the RFP.
