Both of the above payment methods offer 24/7 payment accessibility and instant payment acknowledgement through SMS and digital receipts, making the payment process paperless and envi-ronment friendly.

With the addition of these new features to MetLife’s existing array of digital servicing channels, which includes mobile financial services, Online Banking and Electronic Fund Transfer, and debit and credit card payment facilities, MetLife customers can continue to pay their premiums quickly and easily without having to visit a physical location.
