Income Now

MetLife Guaranteed Income Program (MGIP)

A fixed immediate income annuity for employees who are planning to retire and would like benefit payments to begin within 12 months.

  • A series of consistent, predictable income payments that begin within a year of purchase and are guaranteed for as long as a participant lives.1
  • The option to add inflation protection and/or a cash refund for additional protection of a participant’s money and loved ones.

Income Later

MetLife Retirement Income Insurance

A fixed deferred income annuity for employees who are planning to retire and would like benefits payments to begin at a later age (typically 80-85).

  • A longer deferral period which translates into higher income payments once they begin.
  • A reduced required minimum distribution which means less reportable income.
  • Protection against longevity risk while remaining assets in the DC plan can continue to grow over time.
