DOL Further Extends Rules on Investment Advice Effective Date

The Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) recently announced publication of a notice further extending the applicability and effective dates of the final rule on investment advice under the Pension Protection Act to Nov. 18, 2009. The notice was published in the May 22 edition of the Federal Register.

On Jan. 21, 2009, the department published a final rule governing the provision of investment advice under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act's prohibited transaction provisions.

On March 20, the department extended the applicability and effective dates of the final regulation from March 23 to May 22.

The department said it has since determined that additional time is necessary to consider the legal and policy issues raised by comments on the final rule. The extension of the effective and applicability dates will afford the department that additional time.
