Accountability and ethics are important issues on the minds of many individuals today.   What standards apply to the pension industry?   The National Institute of Pension Administrators (NIPA) has a list for their members on their web site located at  The organization has some great basics in their 14 item Code of Ethics such as following laws and being honest and truthful.   Some additional items that I feel are great include the acknowledgement of the need for continued education so their members are up to date and the using your skills to promote the field and help others.   It’s a beautiful standard and a wonderful model for everybody in the field.   Unfortunately, the page does not discuss the implications of not following the Code of Ethics.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!   Please be sure to sign up for my blog and follow me on twitter.
