We compute the effect of nondiagonal neutrino mass in liljγ in Supersymmetry (SUSY) theories with nontrivial quark-lepton complementarity and a flavor symmetry. The correlation matrix VM = UCKMUPMNS is such that its (1,3) entry, as preferred by the present experimental data, is zero. We do not assume that VM is bimaximal. Quark-lepton complementarity and the flavor symmetry strongly constrain the theory and we obtain a clear prediction for the contribution to μeγ and the τ decays τeγ and τμγ. If the Dirac neutrino Yukawa couplings are degenerate but the low-energy neutrino masses are not degenerate, then the lepton decays are related among them by the VM entries. On the other hand, if the Dirac neutrino Yukawa couplings are hierarchical or the low-energy neutrino masses are degenerate, then the prediction for the lepton decays comes from the UCKM hierarchy.
