Zamansky & Associates LLC Announces It Is Investigating Sales Practices Concerning Guaranteed Income Riders To Variable Annuities

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

Zamansky & Associates LLC announces that it is investigating sales practices of Guaranteed Income or Lifetime Income Riders or Supplements to variable annuity policies. In an investor publication on its website entitled, Variable Annuities: What You Should Know, the SEC states that one common feature, the guaranteed minimum income benefit, guarantees a particular minimum level of annuity payments, even if you do not have enough money in your account (perhaps because of investment losses) to support that level of payments. The SEC also states that you will pay for each benefit provided by your variable annuity.

The investigation concerns sales of variable annuities with guaranteed income benefits, and whether the fees, risks and limits of these provisions were adequately disclosed. According to Jake Zamansky, investors should be careful that they are not misled and that they fully understand the limits of any guaranteed income benefits. The idea of guaranteed income can be attractive to an investor, and investors should know the cost they are paying for such a benefit and understand whether it is worth paying, Zamansky states.
