When you think about your future, what comes to mind?

Perhaps images of growing a great family, a fulfilling career, a well-deserved retirement, or leaving a legacy.

To accomplish these and other goals, most of us need some help. That's what we do at New York Life. We help.

  • We help people of every age and families of every size plan for the future they want and protect themselves against unforseen risks.

  • We help those who have completed their careers enjoy dignified and fruitful retirement years.
  • We help to create wealth, in families and communities alike, and spread legacies of love.
  • And, we offer career opportunities to those who want to enable others to fulfill their dreams.

The Cedar Rapids General Office of New York Life serves all of Eastern Iowa and beyond. We represent the largest mutual life insurance company in the United States -- one that will pay $1.33 billion in dividends to our policyholders in 2013 (an increase of $100 million from 2012). We are a company that is 86th on the Fortune 500 list1 and among the world's most admired companies2. And, even during the economic rollercoaster of the last few years, New York Life has maintained the industry's highest financial strength ratings currently awarded to any life insurer, as measured by the leading credit rating agencies3. We've even expanded our sales force, so that we can more effectively offer 168 years of strength and integrity to your neighbors in Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls, Clinton, Cascade, and all points in between.

So whether you are looking for a help, or wanting to begin a career focused on helping others, we're here to answer your questions.
