Manhattan Life Company History
Manhattan Life Insurance Company was founded in 1850 and made a name for themselves early on by being the first U.S. life insurer to introduce incontestable clauses in their life insurance contracts. These clauses removed the guesswork from the life insurance policies by designating a specific time period when the company could contest the information on an application. After the specified time period (normally two years) has expired, the insurer must pay the death benefit without question.
Manhattan Life also broke traditional ground by issuing the first ever group life insurance policy and being the first ever life insurer to issue a policy to a woman. The insurer also enjoys being awarded a “B+” rating with an outlook rating as “stable” from A.M. Best Rating Services. The company also achieved an “A+” rating from the Better Business Bureau.

Although Manhattan Life operates as four separate insurers across the country, each subsidiary entity enjoys the same ratings from A.M. Best and the Better Business Bureau. The subsidiary companies provide multiple insurance products to a very broad market:
Manhattan Life: Offers Medicare Supplement Insurance, Life and supplemental health insurance, and fixed rate annuities.
Western United Life: Offers Medicare Supplement Insurance along with fixed rate and immediate annuity products.
Family Life: Offers Medicare Supplement Insurance and Mortgage Protection Life Insurance.
Manhattan Life Assurance: Manhattan Life Assurance provides life insurance, group and individual health insurance, and cancer and accident policies.
Manhattan Life Medicare Supplemental Insurance
The Manhattan Life Medicare Supplement Insurance provides coverage for the gaps that are found in traditional Medicare Part A and Part B. Since Medicare was never designed to pay all of the enrollee’s hospital or doctor bills, beneficiaries can purchase Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) to cover the deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance expenses that must normally be paid out-of-pocket.
