U.S. Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Fiduciary Rule has driven much change in the industry, including the way retirement investors receive advice, and the products that are offered to them.

Our commitment to choice and to you

At Lincoln Financial Network, we’ve always believed that our clients’ interests must come first, that our advisors should be independent and unencumbered in the advice they offer, and that clients should be able to choose how they pay for advice – both with fee and commission options.

Our culture and focus on financial planning demands that we offer a wide range of solutions and options for clients, and we will continue to support these values.
