37 Besen Parkway, LLC v. John Hancock Life Insurance Company (U.S.A.), Case No. 15-cv-9924 (S.D.N.Y.)
If You Own a Universal Life Insurance Policy with John Hancock, You May Be Eligible for a Payment from a Class Action Settlement. This Settlement does not affect your life insurance policy or death benefit in any way.
A $91.25 million Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit that alleged that John Hancock Life Insurance Company (U.S.A.) (“John Hancock”) charged policyholders excessive (1) cost of insurance (“COI”) charges, and (2) costs under an “Age 100 Waiver of Charges Rider.” John Hancock maintains that it did nothing wrong and denies any wrongdoing or liability. The Court has not decided who is right.
As part of the Settlement, Settlement Class Members who did not timely exclude themselves from the Class were eligible to receive payment from the Net Settlement Fund and automatically received a payment when the Settlement was approved.
