Cigna Trusted Advisor®

Welcome to Cigna Trusted Advisor®, a site for you to obtain valuable information about your benefits.


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.

A message from Human Resources

Welcome to the Cornell University site that helps you manage the group life insurance coverage you have available through Cigna. You can access detailed plan information and enroll in programs to fill financial gaps in your personal planning and maintain current beneficiary records. Please note: While beneficiaries designated prior to 06/01/2013 are not reflected on this site, copies of paper designations made prior to 06/01/2013 are kept on file at Cigna. We encourage you to update your beneficiaries today. If you submit your beneficiary designation via a paper form to Cigna, they will enter it into the Cigna Trusted Advisor website so you can view it online through My Account.

In addition: In order to seamlessly access online enrollment, you must be connecting to this website through Workday.
