Did you know…?

Little has been written about how a plan fiduciary should prudently select insurance companies and guaranteed retirement income for participants. There’s a DOL “safe harbor” regulation, but it doesn’t give fiduciaries a checklist for compliance. To address this, Lincoln Financial hired us to work with an insurance consultant to develop a set of criteria that fiduciaries or their advisors can use to make those decisions. Bruce Ashton and I have written an article about the checklist that can be found here:  Did you know…About the Fiduciary Requirements for Selecting a Lifetime Income Provider?  The article has links to the white paper and the checklist.
