DoL to Sponsor Free PPA Webcast

Those looking for some insights on the Pension Protection Act can now get some straight from the 'horse’s mouth.'

On December 6, the Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) will hold a free, two-hour webcast (from noon to 2 p.m. ET) to “help employers and pension professionals understand recent regulatory and related guidance under the Pension Protection Act of 2006.”

According to a press release, this is the first in a series of webcasts that will address the new statutory exemptions on investment advice, service providers and corrected transactions, pension benefit statements and regulations on default investments. The series is being offered as part of EBSA’s compliance assistance program – Getting It Right – Know Your Fiduciary Responsibilities – to help practitioners understand their fiduciary responsibilities when operating retirement plans.

Registration is required and available on a first-come, first-served basis. You can do so here. Click “PPA Update Webcast” under “Compliance Assistance Seminars.”
