About FATCA

  • The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is a US tax reporting and withholding law which applies to US taxpayers.

    The law is designed to combat tax evasion by US citizens, and it requires all financial institutions including MetLife to conduct due diligence on customers and Partners.

  • To comply with FATCA, MetLife operations must collect appropriate documentation and information from their customers and Partners to review indicators of US status and determine FATCA Compliance.

  • FATCA is applicable to ALL financial institutions around the world, regardless of the organization’s place of origin. From July 2014 onwards, no financial institution will be able to operate without complying with FATCA.

    In addition, most of the GCC governments (Bahrain, Qatar, UAE and KSA) are in the process of signing Inter-Governmental Agreements (IGA) with the U.S. to allow the implementation of FATCA in all operating financial institutions in their countries.

    In other words, no matter what company you use for your insurance services, the company will be subject to FATCA. At MetLife, we are committed to offering you our support and we will continue to update you on any FATCA developments and deadlines.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us!
