Congress narrowly avoided plunging over the "fiscal cliff," but retirement-savings tax incentives aren't yet safe. Lawmakers deferred key tax-reform decisions that could still affect the retirement business, lawyer Derek Dorn says.

"The fact that retirement incentives rank second on the list of tax expenditures ... creates considerable vulnerability for retirement incentives in any tax-reform process."
