Washington D.C. Workplace Retirement Plan Update:
One Year of Trump, Impact of Tax Reform & Much More!
The podcast series where employers find candid, in-depth interviews with industry experts, new best practices and valuable perspectives on current events.
Recap, highlights, and my thoughts
Honestly, I’m not sure I even gave our guest the chance to unpack his suitcase from his trip to Washington D.C.! I am happy to welcome Sam Henson, Director of Legislative & Regulatory Affairs at Lockton Retirement Services back to the podcast!
Our conversation is timely in that he provides great input on President Trump’s first year in office, what impact it has had on workplace retirement plans and a few ideas on things to come and where we go from here. We also touch on a few issues that are being actively debated in Washington such as Open Multiple Employer Plans, State Retirement Plans and what seems like the never-ending soap opera of the Fiduciary Rule.
As usual, Sam not only provides great perspective but keeps the conversation moving and interesting!
