Retirement Planner: A wake-up call on 401(k) fees
As if it wasn't enough to have politicians like Elizabeth Warren fighting for the 'little guy' with new consumer protection legislation, the U.S. Supreme Court has just handed 401(k) participants the heavy artillery they have long deserved for improving investment performance.
Three nationwide credit reporting agencies have agreed to fix disputed information on credit reports more quickly, wait longer before adding potentially damaging information on medical debt and scrutinize certain data furnished by outside entities, according to a multistate settlement announced Wednesday.
The U.S. Supreme Court broadened protections of workers' retirements with an important decision that increased the responsibilities of the overseers of corporate 401(k)s, particularly regarding fees charged by mutual fund companies. The court opened the door for employees to sue plan administrators who place retirement funds in high-fee products when cheaper alternatives are readily available.
