Support for vulnerable customers

MetLife recognises that a customer’s vulnerability may be due to a single factor or a combination of factors.

Under the Life Code, vulnerable customers, or customers requiring additional support, are defined as those that “may experience vulnerability due to age, disability, injury, a mental health condition, physical health condition, language barriers, literacy barriers, cultural background, remote location, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander status, family violence, suicidality or suicidal behaviours or financial distress.”

If you need extra support to access our services due to vulnerability, we will work with you to find a suitable, sensitive and compassionate option and do this as quickly as possible. Our team are trained to identify, recognise and support customers experiencing vulnerability. This includes specific support for culturally and linguistically diverse individuals, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and individuals who may have difficulty understanding certain health issues.

Please contact us on 1300 555 625 or to access a range of additional support services.
