On September 13th, the Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security Administration issued Technical Release 2011-03 which sets forth an interim policy regarding the use of electronic media to satisfy disclosure requirements under the department's final participant-level fee disclosure regulation. The participant fee disclosure regulation requires employers to disclose more information about plan and investment costs to workers who direct their own investments in ERISA-covered 401(k) and other individual account retirement plans. Under the final rule, plans generally have until at least May 31, 2012 to start giving better information on 401(k) and similar plan fees and expenses. Labor Department Press Release.
