SAL TRIPODI - TRI Pension Services
Your Employee Retirement Income Security Act Resource

I formed TRI PENSION SERVICES (TRIPS) in 1994 with the goal of being a leading provider of consulting, publishing, and training services in the pension services industry. Our flagship publication, The ERISA Outline Book, was first published in 1997 as a one-volume resource, and grew over the years to 9 volumes. In 2019, the rights to this publication were transferred to the American Retirement Association dba the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries (ASPPA). ASPPA continues to update and distribute The ERISA Outline Book.

After working more than 40 years in this field, I retired on January 31, 2024. Thank you to the thousands of clients, colleagues, and friends in the pension business for your years of support. I will be spending my time with family and friends, travelling, and being involved in various community projects.

I have enjoyed immensely the 40+ years I was in the pension business and will cherish all of the memories, the seminars, the Hawaii hikes, the year-end deadlines for the next year's edition of The ERISA Outline Book, puzzling out interesting compliance challenges, the technical assistance calls, researching for my quarterly newsletters, and most of all, interracting with the great, interesting, fun people that provide consulting and administrative services to pension plans, 401(k) plans, and other retirement programs.

My best to all of you,

Sal Tripodi
