We have separated part of our U.S. business from MetLife to become its own company, called Brighthouse Financial, Inc. As a separate company, Brighthouse Financial focuses on retail products for consumers.1 Learn more about Brighthouse Financial.
What this means is that certain policies are still with MetLife and others have moved to Brighthouse Financial. Either way these changes have no impact on your life insurance policy or annuity contract. The same terms and conditions apply and the same premiums need to be paid.
Owners of active individual life insurance policies and annuity contracts that moved to Brighthouse Financial were sent an endorsement (a notice) changing the name of the issuing company for their policies/contracts.
For more specific information about how each type of policy or contract is affected, please refer to our separate support pages for life insurance, disability insurance, and annuities, (long-term care insurance was not affected).
