Defined Contribution Plan Legislative Update – 2Q 2019

April 08, 2019

While 2018 saw bipartisan support for retirement savings enhancements, the proposed legislation highlighted in our previous DC Legislative Update did not progress during the lame duck session. However, many are hopeful that 2019 will be the year for major legislative reform surrounding these issues.

In this update, we summarize various pieces of legislation and recent topics of interest for DC plan sponsors:

  • Leadership Change for the House Ways and Means Committee
  • Expanding Retirement Savings Access
  • Student Loan Repayment Programs
  • Fiduciary Duty and Fees
  • Retirement Income Strategies
