The February 2015 edition of Your Trusted Source features the following topics:

  • President Obama unveiled his newest proposal for retirement reform, complementing the MyRA starter retirement program he proposed in 2014. We have all the details you need to know, including the industry’s response.
  • According to research by the ERISA Council on Employee Welfare and Pension Benefit Plans, IRAs represent the largest sector of American retirement assets at $6.5 trillion compared to $4.2 trillion in 401(k) plans. This disparity is attributed to retirees moving their assets into IRAs as they leave their careers. The ERISA Council studied this movement to better understand how to facilitate lifetime plan participation.
  • Ekon President, Keith Kowalczyk, and VP of Business Development, Genelle Brakefield recently presented at the Complying with H.B. 1882 seminars in St. Louis and Kansas City regarding Missouri Public Plans. We are sharing their presentations in this month’s newsletter.
