Coverage requests will become effective the first of the month following the receipt and approval of your application by MetLife, as long as you are Actively at Work on that date. Coverage requests that require additional medical information and are not approved by this date will not be effective until the first of the month following approval from MetLife as long as you are Actively at Work on that date.
