AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company (formerly The Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States) was founded in 1859 as The Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States (The Equitable), and is headquartered in New York, NY.

AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company is a “financial protection” company and a provider of life insurance, annuity, long-term disability insurance and investment products and services. The company’s products and services are distributed to individuals and business owners through its retail distribution channel, AXA Advisors, LLC; to the financial services market through its wholesale distribution channel, AXA Distributors, LLC; and to corporations and their employees through its corporate distribution channel, Corporate Markets.

AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company is the principle insurance subsidiary of AXA Financial Inc., which is part of the global AXA Group. AXA Group’s operations are geographically diverse, with major operations in Europe, North America, and the Asia/Pacific region. The United States arm of AXA is AXA Equitable. The takeover of The Equitable, a well known American insurer, came in 1991. AXA Equitable consists of many subsidiaries; AXA Advisors, LLC, AXA Network, AXA Equitable Life Insurance, Mutual of New York, US Financial Life, and Alliance Bernstein.

In 1996 AXA bought Union des Assurances De Paris (UAP), France’s largest insurer, becoming AXA-UAP, before reverting to the name AXA in 1999. Then in February 1999 AXA acquired Guardian Royal Exchange. In May 2000 AXA acquired all shares it did not already own in Sun Life & Provincial Holdings. On 14 June 2006 AXA acquired the leading Swiss insurance company Winterthur Group from Credit Suisse for approximately $12 billion.

In 2008 AXA posted $673.5 billion in assets and $923 million in profits.

I am a longtime policy holder since 1991 I never file any claim from equitable since I have been healthy and never been out of work for illness or disability probably this will be the 1st time i will be filing for claim after my 60days waiting period.Been paying my premium directly from my bank for 24 years.I am still on meidical leave after my second surgery.Just want to know is this Disability Insurance of Equitable legitimate never receive any notice from them of termination and they continue getting premium monthly from my bank.

Attorney Stephen Jessup:


If you have continued to pay the monthly premium then your policy should be in full effect. Please feel free to contact our office to discuss your pending application for benefits.


I am looking at buying a policy from Axa, I just wanted to know what has been your experience with them and if they are a reputable company?

Attorney Stephen Jessup:

Isaac, AXA Equitable, as you likely know, is not a very common disability carrier as they stopped issuing policies many years ago. All of their claims handling is done through Disability Management Solutions, who for the most part provide fair assessments of claims. If you would like to discuss what to expect from a lump sum buyout of your disability policy please free to contact our office.
