Tell Washington: Protect my hard-earned retirement savings!

For years, a loophole in the law allowed financial advisers to take advantage of Americans saving for retirement – saddling you with higher fees, riskier investments, and lower returns, while Wall Street pocketed millions of dollars.

Until last year, when thanks to thousands of AARP advocates like you, the Department of Labor closed the loophole and held investment advisers accountable for protecting your hard-earned savings.

But now Wall Street is fighting back, and a bill that would reopen the loophole is making its way to the House floor. It's unacceptable that some in Congress want to protect these bad advisers and put your hard-earned retirement savings at risk – so make sure they hear from you now.

Tell your members of Congress: stop putting my retirement at risk! Vote against the Wagner bill and keep the loophole closed. When you take action, we'll also submit your letter to the Department of Labor, so they know where we stand on this threat to our retirement savings.
