MetLife launches My Leave Navigator

MetLife announced My Leave Navigator, a new offering added to its suite of MyBenefits digital experiences that supports employees planning time away from work due to a disability or event. This proprietary offering brings employees a customized experience, based on their specific leave needs, in order to provide intuitive guidance and boost confidence as employees prepare for, take, and ultimately return from leave.

The new solution includes pre-leave planning and guidance, to help employees visualize and understand what their leave may look like, as well as an intuitive intake experience, access to claim activity and updates to track their leave and return-to-work status. The experience provides access to resources and connects employees’ disability insurance to other employer-sponsored programs, including Family Medical Leave Act and Paid Family Medical Leave.

“Taking leave from work, whether it’s for a planned or unexpected event, can be confusing and overwhelming. We’re thrilled to offer this new digital solution to help our customers and their employees navigate leaves more easily. Our research proves that enabling a successful benefit experience is a powerful way for employers to demonstrate care to employees, and ultimately leads to better business outcomes.” – Juliane Kowalski, Senior Vice President, Life and Disability at MetLife.
