MAXIS GBN is neither an insurance provider nor an insurance intermediary and only the MAXIS Members provide insurance. MLIC is the only MAXIS Member licensed to transact insurance business in New York. The other MAXIS Members are not licensed or authorized to do business in New York, and the policies and contracts they issue have not been approved by the New York Superintendent of Financial Services and are not subject to the laws of New York.

Like most group benefits programs, benefit programs offered by MetLife contain certain exclusions, exceptions, waiting periods, reductions, limitations and terms for keeping them in force.
