FACC Proposes CRS Concept to NAIC Suitability Working Group Download to read the entire document.
Dear President Trump:
I am writing because I am deeply concerned about the Department of Labor investment advice rule also known as the “fiduciary rule.” I understand the rule proposal could be issued by DOL at any time and I believe it must be stopped and reconsidered.
The Federation of Americans for Consumer Choice (FACC) is urging insurance agents and agencies around the country to contact elected officials to protest the Department of Labor’s latest iteration of the fiduciary rule.
The Honorable Eugene Scalia
Secretary of Labor
Washington, D.C. 20210
The Honorable Jeanne Klinefelter Wilson
Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor
Dear Mr. Secretary and Ms. Wilson:
I write regarding the “Improving Investment Advice for Workers and Retirees” proposal recently issued by the Department of Labor.
Dear Secretary Scalia and Assistant Director Wilson:
We write today regarding the “Improving Investment Advice for Workers and Retirees” proposal recently issued by the Department of Labor.
We appreciate the Department’s intention to preserve diverse investment advice arrangements as compared to the 2016 Fiduciary Rule proposed by the prior Administration, as well as the Department’s goal of harmonizing industry regulation in order to protect consumers. However, we have heard concerns from Iowans regarding the impact that this proposed rule would have on insurance agents and their clients.
The Federation of Americans for Consumer Choice, FACC, appreciates the opportunity to testify today. Let me say at the outset that we are encouraged to see many other industry trade associations speak to the very real concerns of independent agents and independent insurance distribution.
