MetLife

MetLife has strong roots in veterans’ initiatives. The predecessor company to MetLife began in 1863 when a group of New York City businessmen raised $100,000 to found the National Union Life and Limb Insurance Company and began business in July 1864 insuring Civil War sailors and soldiers against wartime wounds, accidents, and sickness. Through its subsidiaries and affiliates, MetLife holds leading market positions in the United States, Japan, Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Today MetLife continues to make a difference in the lives of its customers by providing insurance and financial guarantees when they’re most needed. MetLife offers employment opportunities that enable veterans to excel in civilian careers leveraging military traits and values that really matter in the work place such as leadership, teamwork, and integrity. MetLife’s company culture appreciates these qualities, and is looking for leaders and team players who are committed to excellence. In addition to outstanding benefits, including time off for military training and active duty obligations, MetLife offers peer support and employee engagement opportunities through its Military Veterans Network (MVET).  MetLife is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer.

"MetLife’s enduring commitment to military veterans and their families dates back to our company’s early beginnings, insuring soldiers against wartime wounds, accidents, and sickness. We are proud to offer financial protection to these brave men and women and we’re pleased when they choose to join MetLife after their military service. As we build on our recruiting and retention practices for military veterans, the Coalitions’ dedication and results-driven focus continue to inspire us."
