We have been in business since 1845, and we have a long and impressive track record of helping generations of Americans protect their families and attain their financial goals. That passion and commitment to protection have continued unabated for nearly two centuries. We’ve seen the nation evolve and events that have affected the lives of Americans: from the Civil War, to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, to the 1929 stock market crash, to September 11, 2001, to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. What does this mean? It means that New York Life is resilient and able to thrive in all economic conditions. This means we’ll always be there for our policy owners, and for future generations.
