NAIFA Staff Meet With Newly Appointed Senior Officials at the Department of Labor

NAIFA staff recently met with newly appointed officials at the Department of Labor (DOL). DOL staff contacted NAIFA asking for NAIFA’s input on some recent DOL regulations, notably new rules regarding association health plans (AHP) and health reimbursement arrangements. NAIFA provided the perspective of financial advisors on both of these topics.

NAIFA submitted comments to the DOL earlier this year on proposed AHP rules. Importantly, DOL staff welcomed and encouraged NAIFA to frequently share the views of advisors with the department on DOL proposals and initiatives.

As the leading voice for financial advisors, NAIFA was glad to participate in this session with the DOL, and we plan to use this opportunity to have an open and ongoing dialog with DOL staff on legislative and regulatory matters that affect advisors and their clients. NAIFA often works behind-the-scenes to ensure that the views of advisors their clients are heard loud and clear.
