ERPA ~ Enrolled Retirement Plan Agent


Every senior plan administrator at Associated Pension has attainedhis/herEnrolled Retirement Plan Agent (ERPA) designation. In addition, our newer administrators work towards the Qualified Pension Administrator (QPA) designation from the moment they join us.

The IRS had previously offered a designation called Enrolled Retirement Plan Agent (ERPA). This designation was adopted to allow qualified individuals to represent their clients with the Internal Revenue Service or Department of Labor with regard to plan documents, plan inquiries or IRS audits. Previously only a CPA or an Enrolled Actuary was able to act as a third party representative with the IRS. While the program is no longer offered to new candidates, our newer administrators continue their pension education through the attainment of their QPA designation offered through the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries (ASPPA).

We have 10 ERPAs on staff to assist you with any IRS-related issue. Every one of our administrators attend many hours of accredited seminars each year to keep them up to date on current issues and regulations.
