MetLife Inc. said continued low interest rates could cost the company about $2.5 billion after three-to-five years in the U.S. variable annuity business.

The projection for the so-called deferred acquisition cost is based on Treasury rates holding at levels from September of last year, according to a regulatory filing from New York-based MetLife, the largest U.S. life insurer.
