In a recent development, a group of customers have lodged a dispute against NYLIFE SECURITIES LLC and broker Ronnie Cochran. The dispute revolves around the issue of variable annuity distributions that took place between 2022 and 2023.
Allegations Against NYLIFE SECURITIES LLC and Ronnie Cochran
The customers allege that the distributions were used to fund the premiums on separate variable annuities. This action, they claim, resulted in a higher tax liability for them. Additionally, it also placed their assets under surrender charges. The customers have further claimed that these actions did not take into account their liquidity needs, putting them in a precarious financial situation.
Broker Ronnie Cochran, who has been with NYLIFE SECURITIES LLC since April 29, 1999, is at the center of these allegations. However, it’s important to note that Cochran is a broker and not an investment advisor. His primary area of expertise lies in variable annuities.
