New York Life

You won't see New York Life listed on a stock exchange because we're a mutual company. Being mutual means we're owned by our policyholders, not stockholders. Rather than focusing on quarterly results, we care about the long term. After you buy a New York Life policy, you may not need us for years, or even decades. But when you do, we'll be there. To us, our policyholders are really buying a promise--that we'll be here to pay a claim, fund your retirement, or pay for nursing home costs. That's why New York Life focuses on what really matters in the long term: financial strength and integrity. You can trust that we'll keep our promises to you, just as we have for over 155 years.
