1 Guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims-paying ability of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
2 In general, participants may withdraw cash value equal to premiums paid without tax consequences although less favorable rules may apply in the first 15 years. However, if the funding of the 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 you if a contribution would cause your certificate to become a MEC. Withdrawals and loans reduce the death benefit and cash value, thereby diminishing the ability of the cash value to serve as a source of funding for cost of insurance charges, which increase as you age. Withdrawals are subject to an administrative fee of 2% of the amount withdrawn, not to exceed $25.
3 Applies to SOLUTIONS Series 121 plan only.
4 Cash values can be accessed through loans and/or withdrawals, but these will reduce the death benefit and may have tax consequences. In addition, withdrawals from some policies may be subject to surrender charges and could have a permanent effect on the cash value and the death benefit.
