New Rule from Department of Labor to Protect Millions of Americans’ Retirement Savings

WASHINGTON—Today, AARP Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy & Engagement Officer Nancy LeaMond issued the following statement in response to the Department of Labor’s (DOL) release of its final “Retirement Security Rule”:

“AARP is pleased that all financial professionals who provide retirement investment advice must now act solely in the best interests of their clients. This rule closes legal loopholes that allowed some advisors to recommend investments with excessive fees and unnecessary risks, which collectively cost retirement savers billions of dollars a year, particularly affecting older Americans.

“We know there is a retirement crisis in America, and this rule — which AARP has long fought for — will allow more hard-working Americans to retire with dignity and financial security.”
