Protect Retirement Security
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is currently working to redefine the definition of a fiduciary under the Employee Retirement Security Act (ERISA) by modifying what constitutes “investment advice.”
Unfortunately, this re-proposal is both more expansive and much more complicated than the DOL’s controversial 2010 proposal. It will have a disproportionate impact on low and moderate income Americans saving for retirement—especially employees of small businesses who save using products such as IRAs.
The Chamber is committed to working toward a rule that further protects investors while expanding, rather than unnecessarily limiting, access to investment advice and investment choices. Learn more about the threat to retirement security and add your voice to this important issue.
