New York Life has more than 1,200 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 thousands of families, and illustrating for them how purchasing life insurance today will empower future generations. Their mission is not just to sell life insurance; it’s to educate members of the black community about the importance of creating an estate and building a legacy for their children and grandchildren.
With the contribution of our African American Market Agents in their communities, we surpassed our 2017 goal of creating $50 billion of Life Insurance and Future Income protection. Through our focus on growing our network of agents in the community, continuing to provide financial education, and insuring more lives, changing the financial future for African American families is well within our reach.
Exposing individuals and families to financial tools and strategies that have been used to help create, protect, or maintain wealth makes this movement a lifelong initiative. Agents of New York Life are committed to creating financial legacies for individuals and families interested in finding the solutions for their unique set of needs.
New York Life is ready to lead you on a financial path that can help you protect your dreams and build for your family’s future.
