Community Involvement

At the New York Life Westchester General Office, we do more than work in the community, we're part of it. Many of our Agents have local roots - some even go back generations. That's important, because it gives them a vested interest in the people and businesses that make up the community. We believe there's no greater job than helping our friends and neighbors succeed.

 

The New York Life Westchester General Office is a Sponsor of the Westchester Knicks, the semi-pro team of the New York Knicks. The Westchester Knicks were founded as an official team in 2014, and they play at the County Center in White Plains, NY.

 

The New York Life Westchester General Office is a proud Sponsor of the Eastchester Youth Soccer League. The League was formed in 1976, and started playing in 1977 with 72 players and only a few teams. Since then, the League has grown to over 1500 players and over 100 teams.

 

New York Life Westchester’s Child ID Program is designed to help children in our community stay safe in the home, at play, or wherever they happen to be.
