The Bad

Even though there are a number of beneficial features and services included in MetLife’s policies, there are concerns that need to be analyzed prior to making a decision. Current MetLife customers have expressed dissatisfaction with certain aspects of the platform, including:

User Complaints

Current MetLife customers have reported poor experiences with this insurance company. Out of 39 policy holders polled, 33 of those left a one-star rating, while three gave a five-star rating. The three remaining people each left a one-star rating. The main complaint appears to be a lack of helpful communication. Reviewers state that they either can’t get a response or when they do hear back, the form letters are filled with company biased jargon that basically is double-talk. Many of the complaints stem from claims handling, such as payments that are not for the full amount.

The Bottom Line

Metlife provides many of the policy options required by many auto drivers, such as the uninsured or underinsured motorist, coverage for personal injury, collision/comprehensive, rental car assistance and emergency road side service. Discounts such as the defensive driver discount, multi-policy discounts as well as the good student discount help those with multiple cars and teenage drivers. Claims can be filed via the internet, the app, or over the phone with an agent. Both the benefits and disadvantages of the MetLife auto insurance platform should be analyzed when making a final decision.
