Text of DOL Supporting Statement for Information Collection via Focus Groups to Evaluate the Effectiveness of the 408(b)(2) Disclosure Requirements (PDF)
Employee Benefits Security Administration [EBSA], U.S. Department of Labor [DOL] Link to more items from this source
[Official Guidance]
Mar. 13, 2014
10 pages. "As part of this ICR, EBSA and CEO intend to conduct approximately eight to 10 focus group sessions with approximately 70 to 100 RPFs to small pension plans (those with less than 100 participants).... EBSA intends to use information collected from the focus groups to: [1] assess responsible plan fiduciaries' experience in receiving the 408(b)(2) regulation's required disclosures; [2] assess the effectiveness of these disclosures in helping plan fiduciaries make decisions; [3] determine how well plan fiduciaries understood the disclosures, especially in the small plan marketplace (100 participants or less); and [4] evaluate whether, and how, a guide, summary, or similar tool would help fiduciaries understand the disclosures. The focus group results will be used to inform and support the Department's notice of final rulemaking for the guide requirement."
