Not exactly. MetLife spun off their US retail insurance and annuity business as a public company (BHF). The stock performance has been weak. This was supposed to b a case of "the whole is less than the sum of its parts". I got a few shares since I held some MetLife stock for the 4% dividend. When I ER'd we got a term policy for DW from Met and it has transferred to BHF.
...with no reasonable expectation for ER, I'm just here auditing the AP class.Retired 8/1/15.
