Since 1850

Our legacy began on May 29, 1850 with the formation of The Manhattan Life Insurance Company. We made a name for ourselves early on, introducing incontestable clauses in life insurance contracts before any other company. We issued the first ever group life insurance contract and issued one of the first life policies to a woman. In 1894, the original Manhattan Life office building in New York City was the tallest building in the world.


Our rich history has helped shape us into the company we are today – one of excellence and industry-leading innovation.
