MetLife Inc., AXA Equitable Life Insurance Co. and Lincoln National Corp. Face Class-Action Lawsuits over Shadow Insurance Allegations

MetLife Inc., AXA Equitable Life Insurance Co. and Lincoln National Corp. are facing class-action lawsuits related to certain practices involving reinsurers. MetLife and AXA Equitable each face two lawsuits, while Lincoln National is facing one. Four of the cases were reportedly filed in the U.S. District Court in New York, while the fifth was filed in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Lincoln National alleged that the insurer used a practice called two-step transactions through which it was able to hide its shadow insurance practices. The law suit, in such a transaction the New York-based insurance company transfers risk to its non-New York-based affiliate. The affiliate then retrocedes such risk to a captive reinsurer affiliated with the original New York-based company. That process allows the New York-based insurance company to report that it did not transact directly with the captive, the news outlet said. The suit against Lincoln National further claims that this practice allowed the company to use assets to pay higher salaries to executives, acquire other life insurers or declare higher dividends instead of preserving such assets to pay claims. One of the lawsuits against AXA Equitable reportedly alleged that the insurer engaged in shadow insurance practices related to its life insurance business, resulting in materially misleading representations of its financial condition. The other lawsuit, which pertains to the company's variable annuity business, alleges that the company's shadow insurance practices resulted in misrepresentations about its financial condition, which it used to market guaranteed benefits insurance riders and other life insurance products. In one of the complaints against MetLife, it is alleged that the company is engaging in practices that places the financial futures of its policyholders, their beneficiaries and even the public at risk.
