    Most life insurance companies, including MetLife, only take a week or two to pay a life insurance claim once the proper paperwork has been submitted. Contact your agent or call MetLife directly to request the death claim processing paperwork, and obtain a certified death certificate to send in with the completed paperwork. The insurance company will send you the check after this has been processed.

    Met life like any insurer will pay claims as soon as any outstanding requirements are met. Usually, that means a copy of the death certificate and a claim form from the carrier. Usually the form is fairly short. When those items are received and processed, a claim check is issued. The claim check will be the face amount of the death benefit, minus any loans, but including any interest earned on the death benefit from the date of death till the issue date. So if two weeks go by, the check will include interest from those two weeks.
