Best Interest / Standard of Care

 

We believe public policy should set up all Americans to live the life they choose through retirement. Financial protections shouldn’t limit financial options. A Best Interest standard preserves choices for consumers in how they save for retirement regardless of where and how they work, their life stage, and the economic status of their household.

Now more than ever, policymakers need to focus on ways to help all Americans protect their family’s financial future.
