Interim Final Regulations on Fee Disclosure

The DOL has, at long last, issued its interim final regulations on fee disclosure under Section 408(b)(2).

Document Excerpt

This document contains an interim final regulation under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA or the Act) requiring that certain service providers to employee pension benefit plans disclose information to assist plan fiduciaries in assessing the reasonableness of contracts or arrangements, including the reasonableness of the service providers’ compensation and potential conflicts of interest that may affect the service providers’ performance. These disclosure requirements are established as part of a statutory exemption from ERISA’s prohibited transaction provisions. This regulation will affect employee pension benefit plan sponsors and fiduciaries and certain service providers to such plans.
