Who is Jay Petty of MML Investors Services?
Jay Petty (CRD #2895602) who is currently registered with MML Investors Services and located in Carlsbad, California is a subject of one of our many securities industry sales practice abuse investigations. Prior to MML Investors Services, Jay Petty was associated with CUNA Brokerage Services and other investment advisory and brokerage firms with a history of customer complaints and securities industry regulatory problems.
Jay Petty Customer Complaint
Jay Petty has been the subject of at least one customer complaint that we know about. The allegations made in the FINRA reported customer complaint for investment losses were advisor provided retirement projections for the 457f plan and used a 10% tax rate. The 457f plan had a lump sum vesting so the amount paid to the executive would be in a single sum pushing them into a much higher tax bracket likely 35%. This caused the amount in the funding account to be short of what was needed to pay the benefit promised in the 457f agreement. The Credit Union Board felt that CUNA should cover the shortfall. They have already taken steps to liquidate the funding account associated with the 457f plan. Jay Petty’s customer complaint was denied and, to date, the customer has not taken any further action.
