Fair Disclosure for Retirement Security Act
The House Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Pensions and Labor today approved landmark legislation by a 13 to 8 vote that would expose hidden 401(k) that may be eating into Americans' retirement security. The bill will be considered by the full Education and Labor Committee.
The 401(k) Fair Disclosure for Retirement Security Act (H.R. 1984) will help workers shop around for the best retirement options by requiring simple fee disclosure on the investment options contained in their employer's 401(k) plan. Current law does not require all fees workers pay to be disclosed; and even for information that is available, it can be difficult for workers to find and evaluate.
