When you are not satisfied with the service or a product you receive from Equitable Life, there is a process for acknowledging and addressing your complaint in a timely and confidential manner. Our Ombudsman, who is responsible to ensure the complaint resolution procedures are properly followed at Equitable Life, administers this process.
To forward your complaint to Equitable Life, please follow these steps:
Speak with your advisor (Individual life and health plans or savings and retirement plans) or plan administrator (for group insurance) about the product and/or service issue you are unhappy with.
If after talking with your advisor or plan administrator you are still not satisfied, contact a customer service representative as follows:

If your complaint remains unresolved, you may then escalate your concerns in writing to the Ombudsman who will review the complaint. Please be sure to include your name, policy number, the name of your advisor and the specifics of your concern, including the steps taken to try and resolve the concern at hand.
