is tapping certified public accounts (CPAs) to expand its distribution. To do so, it has launched its "Partnership for Professionals program, which rewards CPAs for selling New York Life's insurance and financial products.

By enlisting CPAs, the company expands its distribution network to a group of trusted finance-savvy professionals.
