Introducing Brighthouse (MetLife) Conversion Whole Life

Published on November 06, 2017

 

 

Effective November 13, 2017, Brighthouse Conversion Whole Life will be introduced as the term conversion solution for Brighthouse Financial term policy owners. Brighthouse Conversion Whole Life is a guaranteed level-premium, non-participating policy that offers guaranteed cash value and guaranteed lifetime protection. The policy will be issued by Brighthouse Life Insurance Company and in New York only, by Brighthouse Life Insurance Company of NY. This product is not available for retail sale and will be the only product available for both term conversions and other contractual rights that require the issuance of a new permanent policy, such as the exercise of a guaranteed insurability rider.

With the launch of Brighthouse Conversion Whole Life, Brighthouse Premier Accumulator Universal LifeSM (PAUL) will no longer be available for term conversions or the exercise of other contractual rights, except as noted below in the transition rules.
