We Have Been Meeting the Needs of Labor Since 1943. Unions and Their Members Remain A Top Priority.

Our Labor Legacy

There are not many organizations that can claim labor roots dating back to the early 1900s. The Amalgamated Family of Companies can. Even before our company began, our future founder, Sidney Hillman, sought to raise the standard of living for working people. In 1914, he established the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America which subsequently became one of America’s fastest growing unions. In 1943, he founded Amalgamated Life Insurance Company, the flagship organization of the Amalgamated Family of Companies. Its mission was then as it is today:

Mission Statement

We are dedicated to helping working people and their families achieve financial security by providing affordable life, health and pension products and services while maintaining an unwavering commitment to excellence.

Today, we have expanded our organization and its offerings. We are a national organization consisting of five related companies, all delivering solutions that are effectively meeting the needs of unions and their members.

Union Heritage

Union Heritage (Spanish)

In the past few weeks there have been numerous restrictions placed on businesses throughout the United States. Many states and localities across the country have enacted temporary restrictions on non-essential business operations, requiring millions of workers to stay home. Amalgamated Life Insurance Company, which is based in New York, is considered an essential business and therefore is not subject to these temporary restrictions.

However, in an effort to protect the health and safety of our employees, their families and communities, we have taken a series of company-wide actions, across all Amalgamated Family of Companies locations, to implement work from home and other flexible arrangements where feasible. Despite these changes, we will continue to provide you and your members with the customer service levels you have come to expect from us prior to the coronavirus outbreak.

We are diligently working with our partners and vendors to utilize our remote capabilities and infrastructure. We are also in constant communication with UPS and the USPS to stay informed of any potential changes in service. For the duration of this state of emergency, Amalgamated Life Insurance Company will comply with any required Notice Obligations by emailing and/or mailing notices to all consumers.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your Amalgamated Family of Companies representative or our customer service center at: 914-367-5000. They are well-prepared to answer your questions and can address your specific needs.
