Perez's Perilous Costs: Eye-Catching Numbers DOL Is Ignoring with Fiduciary Proposal
U.S. Chamber of CommerceLink to more items from this source
[Opinion]
June 17, 2015

"Small business owners, through SEP and SIMPLE-type IRA plans, provide roughly $472 billion in retirement savings to their employees. But DOL's proposal does not treat small business retirement plans the same relative to large employer plans, putting them at a disadvantage and making it harder for small business owners to do the right thing for their employees.... Because DOL has included advisors to small businesses in its fiduciary definition, many small business employees trying to save for retirement will no longer enjoy access to low-cost investment assistance.... DOL itself has estimated that access to professional investment advice saves more than $100 billion per year in preventable financial mistakes. That is more than five times the amount that DOL says it will save people by finalizing its new regulation."
