Ethical Standards for Practitioners – Part 2

June 7, 2012 at 5:55 am Leave a comment

Accountability and ethics are vital to the health of any profession.  Since retirement plan administrators often lack formal standardized education, standards vary dramatically across companies.   Fortunately, different credentialing organizations have created their own standards for their members.  The American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries (ASPPA) has a list for their members on their web site located at http://www.asppa.org/coc.  Like NIPA’s standards from yesterday’s post, the organization emphasizes the importance of following the law and behaving with integrity.  The organization backs their code by indicating that they have counseling and disciplinary procedures.  I find it refreshing that they stand by the importance of their code with such a strong stance!

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