Ullico | Covid-19: NY Paid Family Leave

How Ullico is here to help!

During these unprecedented times, we are confronted with many challenges beyond the usual collecting of premium, paying claims and investing assets on behalf of our clients. Nonetheless, Ullico is fully operational and fulfilling the important role we play in our affinity marketplace.

The health and welfare of our employees and customers is of the utmost importance. As a precautionary step, we have requested that staff only come to their offices to complete jobs that cannot be done remotely. We've asked that they only remain in the office physically for the time it takes to complete those tasks and to follow applicable health guidelines about safe interaction with others while at the workplace.

For that reason, a significant amount of our employees are working remotely at this time. We have adapted quickly and continue to provide reliable, open access to the products and services that our customers require.
