Required ERISA Disclosures to Plan Sponsors: What Advisers Need to Know

The U.S. Department of Labor recently issued final rules that will require that advisers to ERISA plans disclose specific information about the adviser’s services and compensation, both direct and indirect.

This webinar will provide details concerning which plans are covered, what advisers must do before July 1, and when the disclosures must be updated, as well as the consequences of non-compliance.
