A State Farm office in New Hyde Park is expected to close by the end of November, according to a company representative.
Employees were notified in January 2017 to give them time to “make personal and professional decisions,” spokeswoman Anna Bryant said.
“We understand that these changes can have a significant impact on our most important resource, our employees. We would not be where we are today if it were not for our agents and employees, and that is why we work to assist them throughout any change,” Bryant said.
Employees were given the opportunity to apply for open positions in other locations, Bryant said.
The office employs 82 people, according to Newsday.
The State Farm office is located at 1985 Marcus Ave.
“To remain competitive and adapt to the needs of our customers, we must continuously plan for the future,” Bryant said. “State Farm is gaining efficiency through streamlining and improving processes, leveraging technology, and concentrating employees in larger locations.”
In May 2017, State Farm announced that 11 offices across the country would close by 2021.
