The Day for Disclosure Draws Near: Are You Ready?

The Day for Disclosure Draws Near: Are You Ready?
August 7, 2012 at 1:30 - 2:30 PM ET
Dale Vlasek, Attorney(McDonald Hopkins LLC)
Colin Fitzpatrick Smith, retirement plan designer(The Retirement Company, LLC)
We will be covering the details of fee disclosure, this time to plan participants that will begin on August 30, 2012.

Among those details will the acceptable, according to the Department of Labor, format for these fee disclosures to plan participants:

The disclosures can be emailed or snail mailed depending upon the participant’s preferences and the participant reserves the right to change their mode of delivery at their discretion.

We will define, according to the dictates of the Department of Labor, to whom these disclosures must be delivered:

Delivery is not limited to current participants and anyone who is eligible to participate in the plan must receive the disclosures.

We will offer various courses of action to be taken to prepare for the disclosure event:

A coordinated effort between all advisors to the plan, from accountants and attorneys to advisors and administrators as this initial disclosure event is likely to create quite uproar among plan participants.


Recent surveys would indicate that both plan sponsors and plan participants are blissfully unaware that any fees are imposed on their retirement plan. To be apprised that there are fees, and some are likely to be egregious, will undoubtedly trigger a slew of shrieking from plan participants and a coordinated plan designed to address the concerns of plan participants, before disclosures begin, is essential.

And the planning for this date of disclosure should begin now,

So, we will provide attendees with a step by step course of pro-active action so they can be prepared for August 30, 2012.

Who Should Participate
Anyone who is involved, directly or indirectly, with the administrative functions of the plan should attend
