The Battle for Your Retirement

My guest today is Micah Hauptman with the Consumer Federation of America. Micah is an advocate for the Fiduciary Rule, a rule that requires financial advisors to act in their client’s best interest when making recommendations on retirement savings.

 

Check out my guest Op-Ed column in the Fargo Forum

 

In this episode, Micah and I answer the questions:

What is a fiduciary and why should I care?

Why isn’t this common sense solution already in force?

Who is standing on the way of this rule?

How can North Dakota residents take action?
