Save retirement rule, advocacy groups urge lawmakers

Consumer Action joined its allies in the Save Our Retirement coalition in a letter to Congressional leadership objecting to an effort to roll back Department of Labor (DOL) fiduciary protections through a rider on the current spending bill.

Consumer and investor rights groups reacted to Wall Street lobbyists’ efforts to roll back Department of Labor (DOL) fiduciary protections through a rider on the current spending bill. The fiduciary (conflict of interest) rule establishes the common-sense principle that financial professionals who provide retirement investment advice must put their clients’ best interests first. "Every additional day that the rule is not fully implemented and enforced is a day that allows Wall Street firms to drain their clients’ hard-earned savings," say the groups.
