ACTION: Proposed rule; reopening of comment period. AGENCY: The Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration is reopening the period for public comment on proposed regulatory amendments relating to enhanced disclosure concerning target date or similar investments, originally proposed November 30, 2010, in a previously published document in the Federal Register. In 2013, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Investor Advisory Committee recommended that the Commission develop a glide path illustration for target date funds that is based on a standardized measure of fund risk as a replacement for, or supplement to, an asset allocation glide path illustration. The Department is reopening the comment period on its 2010 proposal, which contained an asset allocation glide path illustration requirement, to seek public comment on this recommendation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In November 2010, the Department published a proposal to amend its qualified default investment alternative regulation (29 CFR 2550.404c–5) and participant-level fee disclosure regulation (29 CFR 2550.404a–5).1 The proposal includes more specific disclosure requirements for target date or similar funds (TDFs), based on evidence that plan participants and beneficiaries would benefit from additional information concerning these investments. Specifically, the proposal wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS DATES: 1 See 75 FR 73987 (Nov. 30, 2010), proposing to amend the Department’s qualified default investment alternative regulation, 72 FR 60452 (Oct. 24, 2007), and participant-level fee disclosure regulation, 75 FR 64910 (Oct. 20, 2010). VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:20 Jun 02, 2014 Jkt 232001 would require an explanation of the TDF’s asset allocation, how the asset allocation will change over time (the TDF’s ‘‘glide path’’), and the point in time when the TDF will reach its most conservative asset allocation; including a chart, table, or other graphical representation that illustrates such change in asset allocation. The proposal also would require, among other things, information about the relevance of the TDF’s ‘‘target date;’’ any assumptions about participants’ and beneficiaries’ contribution and withdrawal intentions following the target date; and a statement that TDFs do not guarantee adequate retirement income and that participants and beneficiaries may lose money by investing in the TDF, including losses near and following retirement. Additional background and other information are contained in the Supplementary Information published with the proposed amendments.2 The comment period for the proposal originally closed on January 14, 2011. Throughout this regulatory initiative, the Department has consulted with the Securities and Exchange Commission (Commission). In the proposal, the Department specifically requested comment on whether the final rule should incorporate any of the elements of a rule proposed by the Commission to address concerns regarding the potential for investor misunderstandings about TDFs.3 In response, a large number of commenters strongly encouraged careful coordination with the Commission to avoid the potential cost and confusion (on the part of plan sponsors and participants and beneficiaries) that could result if the two agencies were to establish inconsistent disclosure requirements. Because of the relationship between the Department’s and the Commission’s regulatory proposals, the Department has continued to consult with Commission staff while working to issue a final rule. Accordingly, when the Commission reopened the public comment period for its proposal in 2012 to solicit feedback on research findings from the Commission’s investor testing of comprehension and communication issues relating to TDFs,4 the Department similarly reopened the comment period for its proposed TDF regulation.5 At that time, the Department invited additional comments in light of the Commission’s research and received ten additional 2 See id. 3 Commission Release Nos. 33–9126, 34–62300, IC–29301 (June 2010). 4 See 77 FR 20749 (April 6, 2012). 5 See 77 FR 30928 (May 24, 2012).

SUMMARY: The Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security 
Administration is reopening the period for public comment on proposed 
regulatory amendments relating to enhanced disclosure concerning target 
date or similar investments, originally proposed November 30, 2010, in 
a previously published document in the Federal Register. In 2013, the 
Securities and Exchange Commission's Investor Advisory Committee 
recommended that the Commission develop a glide path illustration for 
target date funds that is based on a standardized measure of fund risk 
as a replacement for, or supplement to, an asset allocation glide path 
illustration. The Department is reopening the comment period on its 
2010 proposal, which contained an asset allocation glide path 
illustration requirement, to seek public comment on this 
recommendation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In November 2010, the Department published a 
proposal to amend its qualified default investment alternative 
regulation (29 CFR 2550.404c-5) and participant-level fee disclosure 
regulation (29 CFR 2550.404a-5).\1\ The proposal includes more specific 
disclosure requirements for target date or similar funds (TDFs), based 
on evidence that plan participants and beneficiaries would benefit from 
additional information concerning these investments. Specifically, the 
proposal would require an explanation of the TDF's asset allocation, 
how the asset allocation will change over time (the TDF's ``glide 
path''), and the point in time when the TDF will reach its most 
conservative asset allocation; including a chart, table, or other 
graphical representation that illustrates such change in asset 
allocation. The proposal also would require, among other things, 
information about the relevance of the TDF's ``target date;'' any 
assumptions about participants' and beneficiaries' contribution and 
withdrawal intentions following the target date; and a statement that 
TDFs do not guarantee adequate retirement income and that participants 
and beneficiaries may lose money by investing in the TDF, including 
losses near and following retirement. Additional background and other 
information are contained in the Supplementary Information published 
with the proposed amendments.\2\ The comment period for the proposal 
originally closed on January 14, 2011.

    \1\ See 75 FR 73987 (Nov. 30, 2010), proposing to amend the 
Department's qualified default investment alternative regulation, 72

regulation, 75 FR 64910 (Oct. 20, 2010).

    Throughout this regulatory initiative, the Department has consulted 
with the Securities and Exchange Commission (Commission). In the 
proposal, the Department specifically requested comment on whether the 
final rule should incorporate any of the elements of a rule proposed by 
the Commission to address concerns regarding the potential for investor

to avoid the potential cost and confusion (on the part of plan sponsors 
and participants and beneficiaries) that could result if the two 
agencies were to establish inconsistent disclosure requirements. 
Because of the relationship between the Department's and the 
Commission's regulatory proposals, the Department has continued to 
consult with Commission staff while working to issue a final rule.

    Accordingly, when the Commission reopened the public comment period 
for its proposal in 2012 to solicit feedback on research findings from 
the Commission's investor testing of comprehension and communication 
issues relating to TDFs,\4\ the Department similarly reopened the 
comment period for its proposed TDF regulation.\5\ At that time, the 
Department invited additional comments in light of the Commission's 
research and received ten additional public comments, which are 
available for review on the Department's Web site.\6\ Both agencies 
then resumed work on their respective regulatory initiatives.

    In April 2013, the Commission's Investor Advisory Committee 
(Committee) formally submitted several recommendations \7\ concerning 
target date mutual funds. These recommendations include, for example, 
that the Commission ``develop a glide path illustration for target date 
funds that is based on a standardized measure of fund risk . . . as 
either a replacement for or supplement to its proposed asset allocation 
glide path illustration.'' \8\ In response to the Committee's 
recommendations, the Commission again reopened the public comment 
period for its proposal on April 9, 2014, and requested comments on or 
before June 9, 2014.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See ``Target Date Mutual Funds'' at http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/investor-advisory-committee-2012.shtml. Both the 
Committee's recommendations and a letter from Commission Chair White 
in response to the recommendations are available on the Commission's 
Web site.
    \8\ http://www.sec.gov/spotlight/investor-advisory-committee-2012/iac-recommendation-target-date-fund.pdf.
    \9\ The Commission's Notice of request for additional comment 
was made available on the Commission's Web site, at http://www.sec.gov/rules/proposed/2014/33-9570.pdf, on April 3, 2014, and 
published in the Federal Register, at 79 FR 19564, on April 9, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Accordingly, the Department has also decided to reopen the comment 
period for its regulatory proposal. Although the principal purpose of 
this action is to obtain public comments on the Committee's 
recommendations, including the development of a glide path illustration 
based on a standardized measure of fund risk, the Department also 
welcomes comments on any other matters that may have an effect on the 
Department's proposal. Parties who submit comments responding to the 
Commission's reopened comment period, and which are germane to the 
Department's rulemaking initiative, may send a copy to the Department 
or simply notify the Department of such comment and request that it be 
included in the record of the Department's rulemaking as well. 
Accordingly, the Department is extending the comment period until July 
3, 2014.
