Firms prepare now for fiduciary rule A recent survey found more than 50% of advisory firms are in the process of preparing for the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule. The DOL will begin enforcement of the rule on December 20, 2021, according to the report. The remaining half of respondents said their firms were ready. The rule sets a fiduciary standard for financial advisors making recommendations for investors about retirement plans and individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Among respondents, 75% of firms cited new technology as a priority to implement the rule and 25% cited policies.
More workers look to retire early, Fed survey Half of workers (50.1%) polled by the New York Federal Reserve said they expect to keep working beyond age 62. The Fed noted the total is down 2% from a year ago. The number of workers expecting to work longer than age 67 also declined. Researchers noted that about 10% of workers have enough saved to retire early. In addition, many workers over age 55 experienced employment changes in 2020, either by resignation or layoff. Nearly half of those over the age of 55 seeking jobs were long-term unemployed. (AARP)
