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 57 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. 

LICONY Mourns the passing of Thomas J. Moran

LICONY staff and member companies are saddened to learn of the passing of a long time friend and guiding force at LICONY. Thomas J. Moran served on the LICONY Board of Directors for 20 years spanning from 1995-2015 and as an officer and Chair in 2000. Tom enjoyed a sterling 43 year career at Mutual of America as he was promoted from within to lead the company becoming President in 1992 and then CEO and Chairman of the Board before retiring in March of 2018. Tom was a born leader and his quick wit, warmth and humor made him approachable and a pleasure to work with.  Tom also was very active in philanthropy and contributed to many humanitarian efforts through Concern Worldwide U.S. including his work to bring peace to Northern Ireland.

Tom strongly believed on LICONY as an advocate for the industry and helped it become the respected organization it is today.
