What Retirement Plan Sponsors Need to Know About Changing Regulations – Webinar Recording and Printable Slides
In an effort to make retirement plan fees more transparent for plan sponsors and participants, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has implemented new rules known as 408(b)(2). These rules contain a new mandate for thorough disclosure of direct and indirect fees charged by service providers on covered plans. The purpose of these new rules is twofold: to shed light on the excessive and hidden fees imposed by many service providers, and to clarify who is acting in a fiduciary capacity to the plan. In order to avoid DOL audits, fines, or even potential lawsuits, plan sponsors should be proactive about compliance with these new regulations.
