Investor Allegations

On September 7, 2021, an investor filed a dispute against Edward Knezevich. In that complaint, the investor alleges that he misled her regarding the features of a life insurance purchase. According to the investor complaint, Edward Knezevich told her that she could use funds from her IRA to pay for the life policy without any tax penalty. The investor alleges that she later learned that this was not the case.

The damage amount requested is $95,200.00. The case is still pending.
