"Health and Wellbeing is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing - and not merely the absence of disease of infirmity" - World Health Organization.

Adding value to Insurance Inside Super

As an insurer, we recognise that sometimes individuals need support, not just when faced with an accident or illness, but at other stages of their life. In particular, in recent years, we have seen the increased prevalence of mental health issues in both the workplace and the community in general, which might have been prevented or reduced if individuals had access to the appropriate tools and support.

Our response has been to develop MetLife Health and Wellbeing - a holistic, integrated suite of tools, services and resources, that complements our insurance products, and helps your members to manage their health, and in particular, their mental health and wellbeing, across all stages of their health journey.

Our approach focuses on members as both individuals and employees, taking into account mind, body, and environmental life and work factors.

MetLife Health and Wellbeing is designed to help members have the best quality of life they can, wherever they are in their health journey.
