Wherever you are in life, NYL GBS Benefits Guide can help you meet life's challenges.
New York Life Insurance Company acquired Cigna Group Insurance (CGI) on December 31, 2020. As part of this transition, CGI has changed its name to New York Life Group Benefit Solutions (NYL GBS). As we progress with our re-branding efforts, you may see co-existing brands across benefits materials. The same service team will continue to provide the support you’ve come to expect; our contact information can be found on the Contact Us page.
