Disclosure Regulations: Participant Regulation
Participant disclosure regulation is a final regulation that requires plan fiduciaries to disclose certain plan, fee and investment-related information to participants and beneficiaries in participant-directed defined contribution plans that are subject to ERISA, such as 401(k) and 403(b) plans.
The Principal Financial Group® has long supported clear and meaningful communication of fees and investment information. We are pleased with the Department of Labor's new regulation on disclosures to participants because it establishes a consistent standard across the industry.
We have teams in place studying the specifics of the new final regulation. We will help financial professionals, plan sponsors and fiduciaries understand and comply with the new requirements.
