COVID-19 Update
ManhattanLife. Standing By You.


During these uncertain times, we wanted to take a moment to reassure you that ManhattanLife is standing by you. We have never been stronger as a company, both operationally and financially, and our 170-year history is a testament to our resilience.

We are dedicated to the well-being of our employees and our policyholders. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily and continue to follow recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), such as social distancing and increased cleaning of public areas. Employees are beginning to work from home as part of our efforts to ensure their health and safety and to minimize disruptions to policy servicing.

Effective April 1, we are modifying our Customer Service hours.
The new hours will be 8:00AM - 5:00PM CST Monday through Friday.

Our insurance policies and annuity contracts are geared to help you and so are we. With staff in multiple cities, we are here and prepared to take care of your needs. We continue to take new applications, pay claims, process premiums, and honor our commitments to you during this public health event.

Please refer to our website for important updates as they develop. We are here to answer any questions, and we look forward to serving you.

The COVID-19 situation continues to quickly evolve. Go to the CDC for the latest information on COVID-19, including how to protect yourself, what to do if you are sick and if you should travel.



  • Clean hands frequently with alcohol-based soap and water.
  • To fight germs and keep them from spreading, cough or sneeze into a tissue, or your elbow.
  • Share a simple hello instead of a handshake or hug.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly, for a minimum of 30 seconds, and keep shared surfaces clean.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and try not to touch your mouth, nose, and eyes.
  • Increase ventilation where possible.



Stay home except to get medical care.
  • Stay home: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to isolate at home during their illness. You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care.
  • Avoid public areas: Do not go to work, school, or public areas.
  • Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home.
  • Stay away from others: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
  • Limit contact with pets & animals: You should restrict contact with pets and other animals while you are sick with COVID-19, just like you would around other people. Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people sick with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus.
  • When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick. If you are sick with COVID-19, avoid contact with your pet, including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food. If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with pets and wear a facemask. See COVID-19 and Animals for more information.
