Voya’s Annuity and Life Insurance Business

Voya sells its financial products in California through Voya Financial Advisors, Inc. and through Voya product partners such as World Financial Group or other advisory and brokerage firms. Voya’s book of annuities and life insurance has recently shifted. In 2018, Voya Financial divested itself of much of its annuity business to a consortium called Venerable Holdings, Inc., and announced later that year that it will no longer sell individual life insurance. Nevertheless, over 785,000 existing individual life insurance policies are still in force including a large number of indexed universal life insurance policies. A large Voya book of variable, fixed, and fixed indexed annuities is also still in force.  Insurance and annuity carriers like Voya often sell blocks of their underlying businesses and our attorneys can trace the carriers obligated to pay out your benefits over time.  Our lawyers always begin by analyzing the policy exactly as it was sold to you and can determine the agent, advisor or broker who sold the contract to you in the first place.

Variable, fixed and indexed annuities and universal life insurance contracts, including those issued by Voya and its subsidiaries, carry fees and withdrawal charges and advertise and produce returns which may not meet your expectations or the rates promised by your salesman. Our attorneys will analyze what you offered, what you were sold, and how your policy has worked in real life.  California law mandates specifics disclosures to senior consumers in particular and our lawyers will analyze whether Voya or any other carrier has satisfied all legal requirements regarding agent and carrier disclosures. When an agent or carrier violates these protections for seniors, the violation may also constitute financial elder abuse entitling the senior to extra damages and recovery of attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in bringing a successful lawsuit against the carrier or agent.

Evans and the other annuity attorneys at Evans Law Firm for a free evaluation of your policy at (415) 441-8669, or by email at <a href=”mailto:info@evanslaw.com”>info@evanslaw.com</a>.

Annuities and life insurance produce large sales commissions for brokers but are often inappropriate products for consumers, especially seniors.
