Learn Save Retire Banner

Learn.Save.Retire is a U.S. Chamber initiative designed to advance bipartisan support for steps to make it easier for small businesses to offer retirement plans and enable middle-class savers to better plan for their future.  As part of this initiative, the Chamber is advocating for a fiduciary duty rule that doesn’t limit access to affordable retirement advice or retirement products.

CCMC, along with several other trade associations, have been collecting data regarding the Fiduciary Rule's impact on investors and the marketplace. This event discusses the new research and data showing that the rule is not working as intended and having adverse effects on Americans' ability to save for their future.

The Data Is In: The Fiduciary Rule will Harm Small Retirement Savers 

In April 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL or Department) finalized its controversial and long-awaited “Fiduciary Rule,” a sweeping expansion of government authority that fundamentally disrupts the way in which Americans save for retirement. Throughout the rulemaking process, the U.S. Chamber warned that the Fiduciary Rule was built upon a mountain of flawed data and analysis, and would harm the very people it was purported to protect by raising costs and limiting investment options.
