Fee Disclosure Guide: What the New Roadmap Rules Mean For You
Presentor: Derrin Watson Recorded Date: 4/8/2014 Duration: 60 Min.

This program was recorded during a live presentation given on April 8, 2014 at 12:00PM EDT.

The DOL has released its long anticipated proposed regulations to require covered service providers to provide a separate guide or roadmap when they deliver long or complex fee disclosures to fiduciaries. The proposal itself is deceptively short, but the preamble gives lengthy details on the DOL’s thinking and directions. It also points out some key unanswered questions (e.g., how long is long?)

While the new rules are not yet in effect, some service providers are already reprogramming their systems to comply. This 60-minute web seminar covers the information you need to know now to prepare yourself for the coming fee disclosure changes.

Topics include:

  • Overview of the 2012 service provider fee disclosure requirements
  • What is the new guide?
  • When must it be provided?
  • What must it contain?
  • How detailed must it be?
  • How can it be avoided?
  • What happens if you don’t give it?
  • When could we see final rules?
  • When would the final rules go into effect?


Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites or other advanced preparation for this program. However, the speaker will assume listeners have a general familiarity with the service provider fee disclosure rules.

Level: Intermediate.
