Weekly payments may last up to a maximum period of 26 weeks after you satisfy the Elimination Period. Please note – because every disability is different, not every disability may last for the maximum period.
For example, some disabilities, such as pregnancy, often have a defined benefit period of eight to ten weeks unless there are problems. However, if you break a bone, for example, MetLife will work with your doctor and employer to set your benefit period. The length of the benefit period depends on your disability, and every disability is different.
