About

In this rapidly changing environment, a growing number of participants are seeking a holistic benefit plan from their employer. The impact of key life goals is tied to participants’ financial wellness, and it’s more critical than ever that employers provide a comprehensive benefits package. Plan sponsors and plan advisors will sit down to discuss how this new environment has propelled them to become more of a “one-stop shop” for their clients and potential clients.

Some discussion points include:

- In the past year, how has your service models changed, and what additional actions are plan advisors and plan sponsors undertaking to improve participant outcomes?

-  How have the SECURE and CARES Acts affected plan sponsors in the short-term and long-term, and what plan sponsors expect down the pipeline with SECURE 2.0?

- The Biden Administration letting the fiduciary rule stand which provides exemption for investment advice fiduciaries. What is the potential impact on plan sponsors and advisors?

This virtual program is approximately 90 minutes of a panel discussion, breakout discussion groups, and a moderated Q&A.
