Welcome to the Life Insurance Council of New York

We are proud to be the principal voice of the life insurance industry in New York. 

The Life Insurance Council of New York (LICONY) works to create and maintain a legislative and regulatory environment that encourages its members to conduct and grow their life insurance businesses here in New York State. We have 58 domestic and 21 nondomestic member companies that together provide the vast majority of life, disability, and long term care insurance and annuity benefits to New Yorkers. In addition, LICONY has 20 allied, professional firm members that provide professional or business services to life insurance companies or fraternal benefit societies.

Our strength in representing the life insurance industry operating in New York derives directly from the support, contributions, and leadership of our members. What unites LICONY is the common commitment to building a more efficient, productive, and profitable business environment to better serve both the life insurance industry and its customers.
