We stand for...

We stand for life insurance solutions that provide a genuine benefit and the right level of care that is easy to understand.

Our long history and financial strength means you can rely on us to be there when we’re needed most. 

For 150 years...

On March 24th, 1868, a company dedicated to providing working-class Americans with financial protection opened its doors for business.

Since then, MetLife has helped generations of customers around the world protect their property, finances, family, and future.

But for us, it’s never been enough to sell someone an insurance policy. 

We have always looked for ways to help people live better, healthier lives. From campaigning to eliminate tuberculosis, to providing basic health care for millions through our visiting nurse service through the early 1950s, to investing in agriculture, housing, infrastructure and businesses of all sizes, we have always been committed to creating value for the world at large.

Today, people’s needs are changing faster than ever, so our 49,000 employees in over 40 countries are working harder than ever to transform our business. We aim to help our customers and partners navigate whatever changes life may bring for the next 150 years.
