Borzi Announces Fee Disclosure Help for Participants

Phyllis Borzi, assistant secretary for the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), announced tools to help participants understand fee disclosures.

In her retirement security newsletter for plan participants, Borzi said the EBSA offers consumer-focused FAQs that explain the new rules for disclosures about 401(k) services and investment fees. In addition, the agency has a publication, A Look at 401(K) Plan Fees, which includes explanations of various fees and charges and a checklist participants can use to review plan fees.  

The consumer-focused FAQs are here. The publication can be seen here.
