Will Anything Come of the Executive Orders?

Just ahead of the Labor Day weekend, President Trump signed an executive order directing the Labor and Treasury departments to consider several new retirement initiatives. This week, we’d like to know what you think – and what, if anything – you think might result.

As we’ve noted before, the directives are reasonably specific:

  • to look into ways to expand access to multiple employer plans (MEPs), and even more specifically, to look into ways to expand access to workplace retirement plans by those with “non-traditional employer-employee relationships”;
  • to review ways to make retirement plan disclosures more “understandable and useful,” including a consideration of a “broader use” of electronic disclosures; and
  • to at least look into and consider changes to the life expectancy assumptions imbedded in current required minimum distribution calculations.

This week, we’d like to know what you think – and what you think will happen – as a result of those executive orders. Or what additional executive orders you’d like to see. You can respond to this week’s NAPA Net reader poll at https://www.research.net/r/M88SVJB.

And, as usual, we’ll have it all wrapped up for you on Friday.

    Current survey is organized a bit funny and does not allow you to make a choice and offer comments. When you click in comment box the radio button drops your original choice.
