Our Mission
New York Life and its affiliates are in the business of providing financial security through insurance and other products. We are committed to being the soundest, strongest, and easiest company to do business with. Every decision we make, every action we take has one overriding purpose: To be here when our customers need us. That's why we call ourselves The Company You Keep®.

Our Beliefs
We are a Company founded on strong beliefs, beliefs that manifest themselves in the way we do business, through our employees and agents, and in the products we sell and the services we provide.

We believe in financial strength. We believe in maintaining and enhancing our sound financial position so we can continue to do what we have always done: be there for our customers.

We believe in integrity. We believe adherence to the highest standards of integrity is the principal measure of the success of our products, our dealings with our customers, and our contributions to society. Our integrity keeps us dedicated to providing our clients with value and financial security in the products we offer and quality and responsiveness in the services we provide.

And most of all, we believe in humanity. We believe in treating our customers, agents, and employees with compassion, consideration, and respect. Our business is unique in that we possess the ability to help people provide for their futures and make their lives less worrisome, and our enduring belief in humanity keeps us from losing sight of this fact.

From the time New York Life was founded over 150 years ago to the present day, we've stayed true to these beliefs. They are the driving force behind what we were, what we are, and what we strive to become. Through every change that has taken place and will take place in our Company or society at large, these beliefs keep us focused on the fact that we are in a business that can make a difference in people's lives.

Our Embrace of Diversity
We believe that diversity can have a positive impact on all aspects of our business including product design and development, customer and vendor relations, service delivery, and of course, our working environment.

New York Life is proud to support a diversity philosophy built on a foundation of inclusion. We acknowledge that our employee's differences are their greatest attributes and we openly encourage them to use these differences to positively influence our business. Quite simply, New York Life recognizes that the individual's unique talent — the ability to be different — is what creates innovation, causes change, and ultimately leads to a more productive and happy working environment.

We are proud to recognize all of our employees for their individual attributes. For over 150 years, their unique contributions have secured New York Life's reputation as an industry leader and The Company You Keep®. We have no doubt that our support and encouragement of individual differences and the unique talents they produce will only serve to enhance our business for the next 150 years.
