Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On August 3, 2016, MetLife, Inc. (the “Company”) issued (i) a news release announcing its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 (the “Earnings Release”), a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference and (ii) a Quarterly Financial Supplement for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 (the “Quarterly Financial Supplement”), a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference. The Earnings Release and the Quarterly Financial Supplement are furnished and not filed pursuant to instruction B.2 of Form 8-K.

Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Company recorded a non-cash charge in the second quarter of 2016 resulting from its annual review of actuarial assumptions for the Retail variable annuities business. The Company accelerated its 2016 annual variable annuity actuarial assumption review from the third quarter to the second quarter in light of the Company’s previously announced plan to separate a substantial portion of its U.S. Retail business. As a result of this review, the Company has recorded a non-cash charge to net income of $2.0 billion, net of deferred acquisition costs and after tax. Approximately $1.5 billion of this after tax charge is attributable to changes in policyholder behavior assumptions and the remainder is related to changes in economic and other actuarial assumptions. Also as a result of this review, the Company has recorded a non-cash benefit to U.S. Statutory net income of $0.266 billion, net of tax.

The U.S. GAAP and U.S. Statutory impacts for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 on the legal entities below are as follows:
