1 To the maturity age specified in the certificate. In some program designs, if the employer replaces MetLife GVUL with another group life insurance plan or otherwise terminates the MetLife group contract, employees’ coverage may also be terminated, even after separation from employment or retirement. 

2 The current crediting interest rate on the interest-bearing account is subject to change without notice. Guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims paying ability of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.

3 Withdrawals reduce the death benefit and cash value and thereby diminish the ability of the cash value to serve as a source of funding for cost of insurance charges, which increase as you age. In general, if the funding of a certificate exceeds certain limits, it will become a "modified endowment contract" (MEC) and become subject to "earnings first" taxation on withdrawals and loans. An additional 10% penalty for withdrawals and loans taken before age 59½ will also generally apply. We will notify certificate holders if a contribution would cause their certificate to become an MEC. Withdrawals are subject to an administrative fee of 2% of the amount withdrawn, not to exceed $25.
