History of MetLife Insurance
MetLife initially started out in 1863 as National Union Life and Limb Insurance Company, established by a group of businesspeople in New York City, with the aim to insure civil war sailors and soldiers from wartime wounds, accidents, and sickness.
Five years later, in 1868, the company completely embraced the life insurance business and was renamed MetLife Insurance Company. In 1915 MetLife changed from a stock life insurance company owned by individuals to a mutual company operating without external shareholders. The company went public in 2000 and began operation in Australia five short years later, in 2005.
