- FlexVClassAction.com is administered by Epiq Systems Inc.
- The case is under review in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Alameda
The FlexVClassAction Lawsuit claims that violated their own insurance policy in three distinct ways:
- First, John Hancock allegedly impermissibly considers factors other than mortality expectations when calculating an “Applied Monthly Rate” based on “expectations of future mortality experience.”
- Second, John Hancock impermissibly includes amounts in the “Applied Monthly Rate” that should actually be included in the “Maintenance Charge,” the John Hancock class action lawsuit alleges. The policy allegedly permits a maximum “Maintenance Charge” of $8 per month.
- Third, the John Hancock class action lawsuit alleges the policy requires the “Applied Monthly Rate” to be reviewed at least once every five policy years and adjusted to reflect expectations of future mortality. However, the plaintiff says the rate has not been modified.
John Hancock denies any actions of wrong doing but have agreed to a 60 million dollar settlement in order to avoid further litigation.
