For over 25 years, MMA and MetLife have partnered to support members through exclusive rate offers and highly personalized service. Through MetLife member-
exclusive programs — dental, life and disability coverage — MMA members of all sizes have flexible and discounted rate options.

“I am proud of our longstanding partnership with MMA. The MMA/MetLife program offers a wide range of employee benefits for small, mid-size and large employers,” says Tracie Brown, MetLife Account Executive. “Together, we have been able to provide the manufacturers in Michigan access to competitive benefit offerings with cost savings that are unsurpassed in the market for over 25 years.”

In addition to member discounts and rate stability, members have access to local customer service guides. This means that MMA members that take advantage of any of MetLife’s programs can connect with a local account rep personally on all of the partnership’s exclusive offerings.

Dental Coverage

Plan options are scalable according to your workforce and business needs with more than 12,000 dentists available in the state’s network. Because of MetLife’s group buying power, premiums for dental coverage have remained low for the past four years which is highly unique in today’s marketplace.

One longtime MMA member made the move to MetLife based on the amount of discounts available for non-covered services.

“MetLife’s application of network discounts to non-covered services was the determining factor in the decision to move from our previous provider to MetLife and continues to be a major differentiator.”

Life Insurance

Over the years, MetLife has helped thousands of member businesses design custom life insurance plans to meet their specific needs.

Being able to provide valuable life benefits at discounted rates has had immense impact on MMA member employees. Take this customer testimonial from a recent claim:

“Everything was handled very quickly. The person was very kind and caring. They always expressed their sympathy. They offered therapy if I needed it, but I did not. It was immediately reported to MetLife. They immediately contacted me. Also, I got the check really quickly.”


Short-term and/or long-term absences from work are never planned. That’s why it’s critical to have a trusted partner to protect your most important business asset — your people. MetLife guides MMA members through plan options that allow them to reduce risk and simplify the process all while protecting your employee’s income.

When it comes to these situations, there is a lot of information and many questions that need to be asked and answered. MetLife representatives will help your employees every step of the way, easing the burden of the administrative process. This customer describes his experience after going on short-term disability:

“The representatives were sympathetic and thorough. They followed up with me as everything was being processed. I liked the fact that they kept me informed at each step of the process.”
