Retirement Plans for Nonprofit Employers

Welcome to MetLife Resources

Helping your employees build financial freedom!

MetLife Resources (MLR) is a division of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company that specializes in providing retirement plan products and other financial products and services to healthcare, educational, governmental and other nonprofit employers and their employees.

Our strategic decision to provide services exclusively to nonprofit organizations allows us to gain a better understanding of the challenges that exist for nonprofit clients. As a result, our defined contribution services meet the unique needs of both our clients and their participants.


  • Dedicated to the nonprofit marketplace since 1962 and trusted by over 26,000* employer groups to service and support their defined contribution retirement plans.
  • Communication and marketing materials that educate participants about the features of their plan, retirement savings, general financial, and investment information.
  • A flexible investment platform, including annuity options and a mutual fund platform with no proprietary requirements.


The goal of our communications and education program is to encourage employees to remain actively engaged in the retirement saving and planning process. Encouraging participation and increasing deferrals are key factors, and one way to do this is to provide education in the way that employees want to receive it. Our communication and education programs are designed to fulfill this need. We provide education that encourages new employees and non-participating employees to join the plan, current participants to learn how to invest intelligently, and participants age 50 and older to find out how to prepare for the transition from work to retirement. Our communication strategy focuses on delivering the right message at the right time using the right media.



MetLife has been providing 403(b) and 457(b) retirement plan products and services to educational institutions of all sizes for over 55 years. Our work touches the lives of individuals who support students and their achievements, including administrators, professors, principals, and teachers.



MetLife has been providing 403(b), 457(b), and 401(a) plan services to hospitals and nonprofit groups of all sizes since 1962. Doctors, nurses, and non-medical staff alike benefit from MetLife's experience and dedication to your employees.



MetLife provides 457(b) plan services to a variety of state, county, and local municipal governmental employers, giving employees the chance to save for retirement beyond what's provided by their government pensions. From employee education to a broad range of investment choices, we provide comprehensive retirement services to help your administrative workload and help maximize the benefits for you and your employees.

MetLife does not sponsor any mutual funds offered under its platforms and provides clients full disclosure regarding any administrative services fees that may be received from third party mutual fund advisors or their affiliates.

Any discussion of taxes is for general informational purposes only, does not purport to be complete or cover every situation, and should not be construed as legal, tax or accounting advice. Clients should confer with their qualified legal, tax and accounting advisors as appropriate.

Mutual funds and variable annuities are sold by prospectus only. To obtain a prospectus, please contact MetLife at the service center number reflected on your enrollment materials. Please carefully consider the product's features, risks, charges and expenses, and the investment objectives and policies of the underlying investments, as well as other information about underlying funding choices. This and other information is available in the prospectus, which you should read carefully before making purchases and allocations. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions such that shares and unit values may be worth more or less than the original value when redeemed. Diversification cannot eliminate the risk of investment loss.

MetLife contracts contain withdrawal charges, limitations, exclusions, holding periods, termination provisions and terms for keeping them in force. You should read your contract carefully. If you have any questions, please contact MetLife at the service center number reflected on your enrollment materials. Because tax deferral is provided by the plan, participants who invest in an annuity contract under a plan should have a reason other than tax deferral to invest in an annuity contract, such as a guaranteed death or lifetime income benefits.
