When Metropolitan Life Insurance Company opened for business on March 24, 1868 (selling a small number of life insurance policies on that date), the telephone had not yet been invented and electric lights were still uncommon.

Today MetLife is a leading global provider of insurance, annuities and employee benefit programs, serving 90 million customers. MetLife Auto & Home offers a wide variety of discounts, payment options and coverages.

MetLife Auto & Home Group claimed 1.19 percent of the private passenger auto insurance market as of June 2015, the most recent data available from data analyst A.M. Best. That makes MetLife Auto & Home Group the 14th-largest auto insurance carrier among the more than 1,400 tracked by Best.
