Earlier this year we reported on MetLife’s failure to pay retirees to whom it owed benefits resulting from pension de-risking transfers.  A lawsuit has now been filed against MetLife by Edward Roycroft, a former Martindale-Hubbell employee who retired in 1999.  Roycroft was supposed to receive his benefits in 1999, but MetLife did not pay him his benefits until 2013.  Styled as a class action, the lawsuit includes claims of conversion and unjust enrichment and alleges damages to the class in excess of $500 million. The case is styled as Roycroft v. MetLife, Inc., 18-cv-05481 (S.D.N.Y.).  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Securities Division, has also charged MetLife with fraud for making materially misleading statements in public filings causing harm to investors.
