  • Clients claimed they made changes from their annuities to life insurance. Clients claimed they were informed by Jayne Wakeman there were losses associated with the annuity they were surrendering. Clients later learned upon receiving a 1099R there was a taxable gain of $132,889. This resulted in additional income taxes due in the amount of approx. $32,000. Clients believed Jayne Wakeman allegedly did not properly research the cost basis and believe this could have been avoided if the Jayne Wakeman understood the tax consequences of the transactions and properly advised them.
  • Client claimed Jayne Wakeman informed him he could transfer his account to a new plan and because she handled both plans she could pay off the loan in the former plan without incurring taxes and/or penalties. Client claimed the transfer to the 401k was done, however, he incurred penalties and taxes contrary to the representations made by Jayne Wakeman.  Client claimed he made Jayne Wakeman fully aware of his need for this transaction to not cost him anything. Client believed the Jayne Wakeman advised him incorrectly and he did not believe he should incur the cost.
  • Client transferred in aggressive stocks and mutual funds on margin and complained of losses related to the securities and use of margin. Claims set forth for violation of Florida Securities Act, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and failure to supervise allegedly by Jayne Wakeman.
