Cuomo Administration Announces AXA Equitable to Pay New York State Department of Financial Services $20 Million Fine over Insurance Violations for Retirement Product

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that AXA Equitable will pay a $20 million fine to the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) for violations of Insurance Law related to certain variable annuity products, which are investments that many consumers rely on to help pay for their retirements. A DFS investigation uncovered that AXA made changes to certain variable annuity products that limited the potential returns for existing customers without providing adequate notice to DFS. Those omissions limited DFS' ability to put in place important consumer protections, such as requiring existing customers to affirmatively 'opt in' to the altered product rather than remaining in that investment by default. This affected tens of thousands of New Yorkers with variable annuity products at AXA. In 2009, 2010, and 2011, AXA filed requests with DFS and its predecessor agency to amend and restate the Plans of Operation for certain variable annuity accounts in order to implement its AXA Tactical Manager strategy (ATM Strategy). These filings, through which AXA applied the ATM Strategy to new funds and existing funds, failed to inform and adequately explain to DFS the significance of the changes caused by introduction and application of the ATM Strategy to existing policyholders.
