Helping you build, protect and preserve wealth now and for future generations
The African American Community Empowerment Plan
Together we can create a legacy today that will live for generations. New York Life’s agents are committed to creating $50 billion of wealth in the African American community. We’ll do it by raising awareness about the important role life insurance can play in creating legacies.
New York Life has more than 1,100 agents serving the African American community. Our agents are dedicated men and women who have pledged to help empower the African American communities they serve by touching the lives of 200,000 families, and illustrating for them how purchasing at least $250,000 of life insurance today will empower future generations. Here’s how it works:
200,000 (families) x $250,000 (face amount) = $50 billion (future income)Learn more »
What matters most to you?
Protecting your loved ones
Taking care of those we love is always at the top of the to-do list. When it comes to protecting your family financially, we can help you insure your income, protect your mortgage, your children’s education and even your retirement income.
Securing your retirement
Here’s the thing about retirement: we all want two things: a very long one and enough money to enjoy it. What financial resources will you have to cover your needs—groceries, general expenses, medical and long-term care, home maintenance, utilities, taxes, maintaining your lifestyle—well into retirement? We can help you prepare for your retirement and make sure you have the income to enjoy it.
Building wealth and assets
You have worked hard all these years to accumulate assets. Make sure you have a proper plan to protect, preserve and pass on your legacy. We can help with your asset accumulation and preservation needs.
Preparing for college
Giving your children opportunities to excel in life is every parent’s goal. That’s why preparing for their college education and planning for their future are so important. We can help with your college planning needs.
