A commitment to create $50 billion of wealth
New York Life’s African American Community Empowerment Plan is an Agent-led movement to help families build wealth with financial tools and strategies. Our Agents have pledged to create a collective $50 billion of wealth and future income, by touching the lives of 200,000 families and showing each one how purchasing at least $250,000 of life insurance today will empower future generations:
200,000 (families) x $250,000 (face amount) = $50 billion (future income)Learn More»
