August 16, 2019

Equitables'  goal is to offer competitive products to help fulfill your clients’ financial needs and help build your business. As they continue to build their     Annuity product lines and develop innovative products for the future, it gives Equitable the opportunity to re-evaluate the products that they currently offer to ensure the  product portfolio remains competitive. Equitables' sister company, Equitable National Life Insurance Company, continues to offer Medicare Supplement insurance and nothing stated herein changes our Equitable National sales and marketing.  Equitable has made the difficult decision to discontinue the sales of the following products:

  • CareChoices 792(Short Stay Nursing Facility w/ Opt. Home Care Policy)
