Tell Congress: 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.
Yet, for years, loopholes in the law have allowed some financial advisers to tell you where you should put your money based on what's best for their pocketbooks. The result? Millions of Americans have been saddled with higher fees, riskier investments, and lower returns – while Wall Street banks pocketed millions of dollars.
The U.S. Department of Labor released a new standard that will hold anyone who gives investment advice genuinely accountable for helping you choose the best investment for you and your family. But some in Congress are considering legislation that would protect these bad advisers and make it impossible to enforce this new standard.
Don't let them get away with it. Tell your members of Congress: protect my hard-earned retirement savings and help keep this loophole closed!
