What's the difference between fraud, an ethics misconduct issue, privacy, and a complaint?

Fraud can occur when someone attempts to obtain something of value by misrepresentation.

Ethics misconduct issues are interactions with Equitable employees or Financial Professionals where you have specific concerns with unethical or illegal activity. Please refer the matter through the Ethics Hotlines 844-977-0471 or visit Equitable ethics point website.  

“Complaints” are related to dissatisfaction with how you were treated in the course of business.  You may lodge a complaint by calling the Customer Service department that handles your product type. Please see our Contact Us page for all phone numbers.

The privacy of your data and ensuring the safety of your information is of the highest importance to our business. For more information on how Equitable uses your personal data, contact us through the Privacy Hotline 877-806-4573 or visit our Privacy page.
