Are You A Retiree Who Suffered Serious Variable Annuity Losses?

 Investors File FINRA Lawsuit Seeking Up To $1M In Damages from Ameriprise Financial

For years the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has been cautioning brokers against selling variable life insurance to retirees. The self-regulatory organization (SRO) has even said that certain products, such as deferred variable annuities, could be too risky for many older retirees.

It is important to note that this holds true even with VAs that come with riders specifically for seniors.
