For DC plans, 2022 is shaping up to be a year of change. With the impending passage of SECURE Act 2.0 and new compliance regulations governing investment advice, it’s more important than ever for plan sponsors to actively prepare for what's ahead.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • How will the changes in the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2022 (SECURE Act 2.0) impact your employees' ability to improve financial wellbeing, pay-off student debt, and save for retirement
  • The implications of pending legislation on plan design, administration, and governance 
  • What you need to know about the new fiduciary rules regarding investment advice
  • Evaluating your investment lineup and introducing new options, such as cryptocurrency or socially responsible funds

    The session will also include live polling and Q&A.
