On March 31, 2014, Benjamin M. Lawsky, Superintendent of the New York Department of Financial Services ("NYDFS") announced an Agreement under which MetLife will pay $60 million for insurance licensing violations by two of its subsidiaries, American Life Insurance Company ("ALICO") and Delaware American Life Insurance Company ("DelAm").
