Tell Your Representative: Protect my Hard-earned Retirement Savings!
You've worked hard, and you deserve the peace of mind of knowing you've saved what you need for your retirement.
But right now, a loophole in the law makes it easy for some financial advisers to tell you where you should put your money based on what's best for their pocketbooks, not yours. According to one estimate, this loophole could mean hard-working Americans like you lose up to 25% of their retirement savings.
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is considering a new standard that would hold anyone who gives investment advice genuinely accountable for helping you choose the best investment for you and your family. But today, a bill that would stop the DOL from closing the loophole is making its way to the House floor.
Tell your member of Congress: the Wagner bill is unacceptable. Protect my hard-earned retirement savings and vote NO!
