A Better Tomorrow…Our $50 Billion Promise
New York Life’s African American agents have a rich history of leadership and service that dates back to 1957 when the company hired Cirilo A. McSween, the industry’s first African American agent.
As of July 2011, New York Life has 912 African American agents around the country. Embracing the legacy of the trailblazers that came before them, New York Life’s agents are once again leading the industry. Our dedicated men and have pledged to help create $50 billion of wealth in the African American community.
The strength of New York Life’s $50 Billion Empowerment Plan lies in dispelling myths about life insurance, showing African Americans how other cultures use life insurance to protect income and to build multigenerational wealth, and challenging African Americans to become wealth creators instead of wealth spenders.
New York Life’s agents are committed to empowering the African American community. They’ve pledged to help change the lives of 200,000 African American families by showing them how the proceeds from a $250,000 life insurance policy purchased today will someday fund a college education, a new home purchase, a business venture or some other lifelong dream.
