Universal Life Insurance Companies Accused of Cheating Policyholders

Recent class action lawsuits against leading insurance companies such as Lincoln Nation Insurance Company, Phoenix Life, Transamerica Life Insurance Co., AXA Equitable, and Banner Life, allege that insurers improperly raised the “cost of insurance” on universal life the policies, which can cause the cash value of the policies to drop or the policies to lapse prematurely, which not only deprives the insureds of the value of those policies but also may require them to obtain replacement insurance that is more expensive.
