Does MetLife’s Customer Service Have Good Reviews?

MetLife has average reviews for customer service. Like most large insurers, MetLife has a mix of good and bad reviews online. Some customers are disappointed with their recent claims experience, while many happy customers avoid leaving reviews online until they experience an issue.

J.D. Power ranks the largest insurers in the United States for customer service and claims satisfaction. The company polls policyholders who have recently made a claim, asking them about their experience. MetLife is not large enough to appear in the latest J.D. Power rankings in any subregion. However, the company has completed the J.D. Power certification process, which involves customer service questionnaires, performance assessments, and surveys.

In April 2021, Farmers acquired MetLife’s auto and home insurance business. Farmers is large enough to appear on the J.D. Power rankings. Farmers ranked below average for overall customer satisfaction in all subregions – including last place in four subregions. This indicates Farmers has worse-than-average customer service compared to companies of its size. This below average customer service could extend to subsidiaries like MetLife.

NerdWallet awarded MetLife an impressive 4.5 stars out of 5 for customer service and overall satisfaction, praising the company for its lower-than-average NAIC complaints and ease of use.
