DOL/EBSA RIN: 1210-AB13 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Prohibited Transaction Exemption for Provision of Investment Advice to Participants in Individual Account Plans 
Abstract: Section 601 of the Pension Protection Act (Pub. L. 109-280) amended ERISA by adding new sections 408(b)(14) and 408(g). Section 408(b)(14) is a prohibited transaction exemption that permits the provision of investment advice to participants or beneficiaries of certain individual account plans if the investment advice is provided under an “eligible investment advice arrangement,” as defined in section 408(g). In order to qualify as an “eligible investment advice arrangement,” the arrangement must either provide that any fees received by the adviser do not vary depending on the basis of any investment options selected, or use a computer model under an investment advice program that meets the criteria set forth in section 408(g) in connection with the provision of investment advice. Further, with respect to both types of advice arrangements, the investment adviser must disclose to advice recipients all fees that the adviser or any affiliate is to receive in connection with the advice. Section 408(g) requires that the computer model which serves as the basis for an eligible investment advice arrangement be certified by an “eligible investment expert” in accordance with rules prescribed by the Secretary of Labor. Section 408(g) also directs the Secretary of Labor to issue a model form for the required disclosure of fees. EBSA published a Request for Information that invited interested persons to submit written comments and suggestions concerning the expertise and procedures that may be needed to certify that a computer model meets the statutory criteria, and the content, types, and designs of fee disclosure materials currently used and their usefulness to plan participants.
