Like most insurance policies, MetLife's policies contain exclusions, limitations, reductions of benefits and terms for keeping them in force. For complete costs and details, see your MetLife Representative.

Guarantees apply to certain insurance and annuity products (not securities, variable or investment advisory products) and are subject to the insurer's claims-paying ability and financial strength.
