In June, 2009, Ken May Insurance Services was proud to add MetLife to our stable of fine insurance partners. Though we have companies that target all types of risks, from the ultra good driver (or ultra-preferred) to the high risk (or non-standard) driver, I am excited to have an old (but forward thinking), solid company like MetLife in which to place our top-tiered drivers.
MetLife, or as some of you know them as the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company was founded in March, 1868. That’s right, 1868. That is over 144 years ago. So I am pretty sure that they aren’t going anywhere. MetLife has over 90 Million customers in over 60 countries. It is the largest life insurance company in the U.S. and serves 90 of the Fortune 500 companies.

I’m sure that you have seen the MetLife adds on television with the Peanuts characters, primarily Snoopy. And I’m pretty sure that you have seen the MetLife blimp floating above major sporting events (actually, there are 6 blimps in their stable). The Super Bowl Champion New York Giants and the New York Jets share the fabulous new MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands (New Jersey), across the Hudson River from Manhattan (Hey, how about a new stadium for the San Diego Chargers?).
I am proud to tell you that I have had the honor of being asked to sit on the MetLife Producer Council to offer insights to the company into what we the agents and you the consumers need from them to make the partnership strong and long-term. There are only a handful of us on the council so I take this responsibility very seriously and am proud to be involved with a company that not only listens to what we have to say but actually solicit our opinions and make changes that can be made. My first meeting of the Producer Council occurred near Monterey earlier this year where our group was invited to watch the Pebble Beach Golf Tournament in the MetLife sponsor tent overlooking the 17th green of the Pebble Beach course. As expected from a 1st class company like MetLife, we were treated in a 1st class manner.

Ken May Insurance Services is able to offer auto, property, and life insurance products through MetLife. Not everybody fits into the program but those that do seem extremely satisfied and confident. Of course, as I mentioned before, we have a number of carriers that we work with as an independent agent that cater to a wide variety of risks and we are not afraid to move our clients to other companies that we offer when their life experiences change.
So, when you see Snoopy, Lucy, Schroeder, Linus, or even good ole’ Charlie Brown, please think of us and think of MetLife, another solid, financially strong carrier that Ken May Insurance Services has to offer to you.
