"26(f) Programs" Give Investors the Chance to Rewrite Their Financial Destinies

26(f) programs By "enrolling" just a small stake, investors can rewrite their financial destinies with what some are calling "26(f) programs" and earn $68,870 or more every year.

And these aren't programs for "retirement planning" run by the government…

So, what is a 26(f) program, and why are they becoming so important?

In a nutshell, these programs are like "deals" that have been negotiated on the behalf of investors.

These 26(f) programs offer some of the best benefits of traditional investments all wrapped into one. Not only can you invest in some of the biggest and safest stocks on the market, you can also own a stake in the hottest pre-IPO firms.

And unlike a 401(k), you won't have to wait decades to reap the potential rewards.

But the timing with 26(f) programs has become extremely important. That's because the U.S. government is about to make these 26(f) programs harder to join on April 10…

The Department of Labor (DoL) will introduce a controversial measure on April 10. You probably won't hear about this in the mainstream media, but this new measure could cause a "retirement blackout."

Here's what you need to know before this controversial plan takes place…

26(f) Programs Threatened by Looming "Retirement Blackout"

Right now, retirement managers are allowed to have short conversations with their clients when discussing the reason for their investment decisions.

If you trust your retirement manager, this wouldn't have been an issue before April 10. You wouldn't need to consult them as much, and they wouldn't bill you more for their time.

But the controversial new DoL measure coming on April 10 means brokers have to legally and ethically act in the best interest of their clients. That sounds good in theory, but there's a catch…

After April 10, a retirement manager could charge larger fees because they have to spend more time consulting with their clients.

Accounts could have new charges based on a percentage of assets, which is known as a "wrap fee."

Some brokerages will also create "uniform pricing" for investments like real-estate investment trusts (REITs).

Fortunately, there's still time to "enroll" in what some call "26(f) programs" before any of this takes place.

These programs are one of the best ways to protect your wealth before the new DoL rule on April 10. A 26(f) program allows investors to accumulate substantial monthly income along with big lump-sum payouts.

    When I buy some of these Mutual Funds thru my brokerage firm, making the transaction myself. Do I need to let my firm know that these $$ are going into a 26fprogram? And when I do sell, do I actually call the Mutual Fund POC and not my broker?
    Thanks so much, Retired Army Guard
