NAPO UPDATE: IRS Retirement Information

Dear Members,


In response to the concerns raised by NAPO and other public employee organizations, the IRS has decided to push back the enactment date of the normal retirement age regulations from January 1, 2011 to January 1, 2013.  Please see THE IRS DOCUMENT (CLICK HERE) for the IRS Notice 2009-86 announcing the extension for governmental plans. 


NAPO continues to work with the Treasury Department and the IRS to exclude governmental plans entirely from the regulations.  We see this extension as a sign that the IRS has realized it made a mistake in including governmental plans in the normal retirement age rules and that it is willing to work with state and local governmental stakeholder groups to resolve the issue.  


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (703) 549-0755 or


Thank you,
