About Amalgamated Life: Our Story & Mission

Amalgamated Life — A Longstanding Legacy of Helping Working People

Amalgamated Life Insurance Company was established in 1943 by the founder and president of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, Sidney Hillman. Hillman was a labor leader who devoted his life to not only the labor movement, but to the service of the community as a whole. He understood the needs of working people and sought equitable solutions to the issues confronting them and the nation. Hillman’s efforts to bring respect and dignity to working people left a lasting legacy.

Following in his footsteps, Amalgamated Life has been providing exceptional insurance solutions for working people and their families for over 75 years. For more than 45 years, we have also maintained a consistent A.M. Best “A” Rating (Excellent) – a testament to our strong fiscal condition and excellent claims-paying performance.

Amalgamated Life continually strives to meet the insurance and employee benefit needs of its customers. We do so by understanding their concerns and then providing them with solutions and services that exceed their expectations. Our offerings cover a wide range of needs and are available to plan sponsors, members, employees, and licensed brokers and consultants. They include group solutions: term life, medical stop loss, disability and specialty drug cost management services. Our voluntary benefits include: accident, accidental death and dismemberment, critical illness, dental, disability, hearing, ID protection, legal, voluntary and whole life insurance.
