MetLife, Inc. provides life insurance, annuities, employee benefits, and asset management products. The company, through its subsidiaries and affiliates, holds market positions in the United States, Japan, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. In the U.S., the company provides various insurance and financial services products, including life, dental, disability, property and casualty, guaranteed interest, stable value and annuities, through both proprietary and independent retail distribution channels, as well as at the workplace. Outside the U.S., the company provides life, medical, dental, credit and other accident and health insurance, as well as annuities, endowment and retirement and savings products to both individuals and groups. Segments The company is organized into six segments, reflecting three geographic regions: Retail; Group, Voluntary & Worksite Benefits; Corporate Benefit Funding; and Latin America (collectively, the ‘Americas’); Asia; and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The company also reports certain of its results of operations in Corporate & Other, which includes MetLife Home Loans LLC (MLHL), the surviving, non-bank entity of the merger of MetLife Bank, National Association with and into MLHL, and other business activities. Americas The company’s businesses in the Americas offer a range of protection products and services aimed at serving the financial needs of its customers throughout their lives. These products are sold to individuals and corporations, as well as other institutions, and their respective employees. Retail This segment is organized into two businesses, Life & Other and Annuities. Life & Other The major products within Life & Other are as follows: Variable Life: Variable life products provide insurance coverage through a contract that gives the policyholder flexibility in investment choices, and depending on the product, in premium payments and coverage amounts, with certain guarantees. Primarily, with variable life products, premiums and account balances could be directed by the policyholder into various separate account investment options or directed to the company’s general account. In the separate account investment options, the policyholder bears the entire risk of the investment results. The company collects specified fees for the management of the investment options. The policyholder’s cash value reflects the investment return of the selected investment options, net of management fees, and insurance-related and other charges. In some instances, third-party money management firms manage these investment options. Universal Life: Universal life products provide insurance coverage on the same basis as variable life, except that premiums, and the resulting accumulated balances, are allocated to the company’s general account. The company credits premiums to an account maintained for the policyholder. Premiums are credited net of specified expenses. Interest is credited to the policyholder’s account at interest rates that the company determines, subject to specified minimums. Specific charges are made against the policyholder’s account for the cost of insurance protection and for expenses. Term Life: Term life products provide a guaranteed benefit upon the death of the insured for a specified time period in return for the periodic payment of premiums. Specified coverage periods range from 1 year to 30 years. Premiums might be guaranteed at a level amount for the coverage period or might be non-level and non-guaranteed. Term insurance products are sometimes referred to as pure protection products, in that there are typically no savings or investment elements. Whole Life: Whole life products provide a guaranteed benefit upon the death of the insured in return for the periodic payment of a fixed premium through a predetermined period. Premium payments might be required for the entire life of the contract period, to a specified age or period, and might be level or change in accordance with a predetermined schedule. Whole life insurance includes policies that provide a participation feature in the form of dividends. Disabi
