Average Customer Review

 
Reviews

My overall experience with MetLife and its agents has been time effective and friendly. From my initial contact, MetLife and its reps have maintained an open line of customer service either by phone or on the internet. The in-home visit by the nurse was great for convenience and time consideration as well. The rates are appropriate and competitive. Thanks MetLife! - WorryFree (Chicago IL)

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.
