  • Register by clicking the "Register here" highlighted text, or by clicking "Register Now" on the left hand side of the web page.
  • Enter your personal information: Your first and last name, Dow ID number preceded by three zeros (e.g. 000123456) and date of birth. E-mail address is optional.

If you assigned ownership of your policy(ies) to a trust or a third party, only the Policy Owner can designate/update beneficiary information, and you will not have access to the MetLife web site. MetLife already has your current assignment on file. If the Policy Owner wants to update the assignment, they must contact MetLife directly at 866-492-6983 (domestic and international calls), and request the appropriate forms.

If you have questions about MetLife’s MyBenefits website, your user profile or you need additional assistance, contact MetLife Customer Service at 866-492-6983, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am – 11:00 pm (EST).
