If you have an annuity through Brigthouse (previously MetLife), you may have recently received a rather confusing letter from them. I’ve linked that letter here for your reference.
It’s quite obvious that this letter was written by a legal team, because at best it’s confusing and at its worst, it might even appear like your annuity may be changing to a new carrier.
I have been in communication with Brighthouse and from what I’ve learned, the only thing that’s going on, is that Brighthouse has hired a new third-party administrator in order to execute client service requests. Therefore, from your perspective, this is a non-issue. But they really composed quite a scary letter, to be frank, in order to information about a very simple change.
