Stop Trump: Protect the retirement security of millions of working people
Submit a comment to the Department of Labor today to protect the hard-earned retirement savings of current and future retirees.
Donald Trump’s Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta has opened up a “Request for Information” comment period in a blatant attempt to undermine the progress we’ve made on behalf of people saving for retirement.
He and Donald Trump are siding with Wall Street “advisers” over working people in an attempt to weaken, or even roll back a rule that would protect retirees from “conflicted” retirement advice.
Conflicted advice costs retirement savers $17 billion each year. The fiduciary rule requires Wall Street advisers to provide retirement investment advice that is in the best interest of the client, not the adviser.
