Understand the common pitfalls that retirement plan savers encounter, decode revenue sharing practices, and summarize recent retirement plan litigation against plan sponsors and the DOL's Fiduciary Rule that took effect this month.

Given the current legal environment, the stakes are high for understanding these challenges and reaching viable answers.

2. Decode the revenue sharing practices related to investment expense, administrative expense, and the cost of advice. 

3. Summarize recent retirement plan litigation against retirement plan sponsors, including breach of fiduciary duty under ERISA and the DOL's Fiduciary Rule that took effect June 9.
