How We’re Helping


Here are some of the actions we’ve taken to help our communities, customers, and employees during this difficult time:

  • The MetLife Foundation is providing $25 million in grants to support COVID-19 global relief efforts—directed toward people with urgent needs for food, healthcare, and direct financial assistance
  • Donation of thousands of face masks, bottles of hand sanitizer, and canisters of disinfecting wipes to help those in need
  • Reinforcing claims departments to process increased volume in a timely manner

The health and well-being of our employees is a top priority. MetLife is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation around the world. We are taking several proactive steps to protect the well-being of our employees. These include:

  • A ban on all non-essential air travel, both internationally and domestically.
  • Postponement of all large meetings, defined as 50 or more people, for the next 45 days
  • 14-day self-quarantines for those who have traveled to impacted areas or might otherwise have come into contact with infected persons
  • Deep cleaning of facilities where our people work, and
  • Regular consultations with medical professionals to ensure our policies remain robust
