This initiative will explore what steps, if any, that the Department could or should take, by regulation or otherwise, to enhance the retirement security of American workers by facilitating access to and use of lifetime income or other arrangements designed to provide a stream of income after retirement. The Department has established a public record as a result of the actions mentioned below (RFI and Public Hearing). The record supports further Departmental consideration or action in a number of areas including pension benefit statements, participant education and fiduciary guidance. While the Department is treating this RIN, 1210-AB33, as being completed for purposes of the Semiannual Regulatory Agenda, its completion is not a determination on whether further action, regulatory or otherwise, is needed to facilitate access to and use of lifetime income or other arrangements designed to provide a stream of income after retirement.
