About Us


Located in Honolulu, the Hawaii General Office serves New York Life clients throughout the area. With many full-time professional agents, we have been serving our clients for 143 years!

New York Life began issuing policies in Hawaii in the fall of 1879. It was the second life insurance company to offer insurance in Hawaii. The Honolulu General Office opened on April 14, 1909, with Frederick A. Wickett as manager. It was located in the Judd Building, at Fort and Merchant Streets, until 1918, when the office was moved to the Bank of Hawaii Building, where it remained for 25 years.

At the Hawaii General Office , we believe our business is based on trust and loyalty and that there is no greater job than helping our friends and neighbors succeed.  That's why our products are designed to help you, your family and your business when you need it most.
