|As previously communicated, sales of new IDI policies will be suspended as of September 1, 2016. The last date to place issued policies is October 31, 2016. As we continue toward this suspension of new Individual Disability Insurance (IDI) sales, we want to confirm some key dates.
We will continue to accept New Business Applications and continue to license, appoint and contract new brokers until August 31, 2016. Please keep in mind, all IDI New Business Applications must be received (in good order) in Tampa by September 1, 2016. Any IDI New Business Application received after 9/1/2016 will be returned. All issued IDI policies must be placed on or before October 31, 2016.
The IDI illustration capability within the MetLife Solutions platform will end on August 31, 2016. Access to all sites/portals and IDI marketing materials will end on September 1, 2016.
As previously communicated, only the Individual Disability Insurance business is impacted by this suspension. The Group/GSI Disability business is not affected.
Thank you for your support. We remain committed to providing you with information and important updates as they become available.
