The Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration has extended the deadline for 401(k) plans to disclose fees and expenses to participants to 120 days after the Jan. 1, 2012 deadline. Originally, the deadline was 60 days after the effective date. As a result, plans now have until April 30, 2012 to provide the information.

This amendment will ensure that employers obtain the information they need from service providers in order to satisfy their disclosure obligations to their workers, the DOL said.
