New York Life offers you a valuable complement to your employment benefits—permanent, affordable life insurance. Even if you already have group term life insurance, you can get this extra protection with the convenience of automatic payroll deduction.

Most group term life insurance policies last only as long as you work for that employer. New York Life Employee’s Whole Life Insurance lets you take your policy with you even if you change jobs or retire. And since it’s permanent insurance you will receive additional benefits like building cash value and eligibility to earn dividends.

At New York Life, we aspire to be an industry leader at the workplace by providing valuable protection and peace of mind for employees and their families. Our nationwide network of agents make it their personal mission to connect with you individually, and, in many cases, help address your financial needs beyond what is being offered at the workplace.

Simplified Issue

LIFE AND WORK. THEY GO TOGETHER. 

If you already have life insurance coverage through your employer, you’ve taken an important step toward protecting your family’s financial future. But most company-sponsored plans are group term programs. That means when you retire or if you leave your job for any reason, your coverage may end. On the other hand, when you own a permanent life policy, your loved ones will be protected wherever you work, as long as the premiums are paid.
