Compensation and
benefits that add up.

It’s important to feel rewarded for your hard work. Compensation at New York Life depends on a number of factors, but with a commission-based career, what you make is ultimately up to you.

Let’s look at the numbers.

A successful insurance and financial professional* can make a very good living. In 2018, the average income for our more than 14,000 insurance and financial professionals exceeded $74,000. In that same year, our top 500 insurance and financial professionals made an average income well over $600,000.

How much will you make?

Your compensation is based on commissions which are tied to your sales.

Short-term compensation.

The money you receive within the first year of making a sale is referred to as shortterm compensation. Your short-term compensation is made up of a portion of the premium payments your clients make during the first 12 months they own a product. It’s an important part of your total compensation.

Long-term compensation.

As clients continue to make premium payments, you continue to be rewarded. These are called renewal commissions. Over time, your renewal commissions will add up and make a healthy contribution to your income.
