How Do Annuities Work?
Annuities are essentially investment products that return income payments over an extended period of time. A large up-front lump sum is often required to start a fixed or variable annuity, and the payout is generally intended to support individuals through retirement. This type of insurance product can be especially beneficial in the event that other retirement investments run out. Since annuities require a substantial up-front cost, the commissions can be quite high for those who facilitate their purchase.
What is Annuities Fraud?
Annuities fraud is committed when they are sold under false pretenses. An example is when an unethical professional encourages the purchase of annuity through misrepresentation and omission of the costs associated with the investment, and through the misrepresentation of the terms of the agreement or encourage investors into purchases of questionable suitability.
Annuity losses are a common basis for securities litigation, securities arbitration or securities mediation. California investment fraud lawyer Jonathan W. Evans represents public investors who have experienced losses in their annuities due to negligence, fraud or other types of misconduct, and can provide valuable insight in terms of disputing these losses in the pursuit of recovery.
