Metlife Auto Home Insurance
The NYSUT Member Benefits Trust-endorsed MetLife Auto Home Insurance Program offers special group rates on personal property and liability coverage not available to individual MetLife policyholders.
Insurance policies include Auto, Home, Renters, Boat, Personal Excess Liability (Umbrella), Fire, Motorcycle, Landlord s Rental Dwelling, Snowmobile, and Recreational Vehicle.
Alternate homeowners insurance carriers
The MetLife Auto Home program includes access to alternate homeowners insurance carriers when MetLife is not able to provide desired coverage in coastal areas. If members are denied coverage in these regions, MetLife will offer to refer them to its General Agency. MetLife’s General Agency acts as a broker to help members secure coverage through companies that MetLife has vetted and approved.
MetLife currently has three to five companies in New York state that offer this additional coverage and one company in Florida offering this coverage. These companies are rated an “A” or better but have more lenient underwriting guidelines. MetLife will only refer members to the General Agency if it cannot provide coverage based on underwriting guidelines and the member agrees to the referral. If members refuse the referral, they are free to find alternative coverage on their own.
Please note that payroll or pension deduction will not be available for policies written through MetLife’s General Agency.
Change to multi-policy discount
MetLife Auto Home recently raised the multi-policy discount on its homeowners insurance with auto from 7% to 15%. All new home coverage and current policies renewing after 11/30/13 will receive this additional discount.
The multi-policy/multi-product discount on auto insurance with home remains at 8%.
