The Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) has come out with an interim policy regarding the use of electronic media to satisfy participant-level fee notice requirements.
EBSA, an arm of the U.S. Labor Department, has described the interim policy in Technical Release 2011-03, which creates a safe harbor for employers that want to use e-mail or other electronic media to meet the new disclosure requirements.
