Does anyone know how to report the money received in lieu of
taking stock as a Met Life policy holder? I did not get a 1099 form.
Is it a short or long gain?

I don't have personal knowledge on this, but from what I've seen,
your acquisition date is when you took out the policy, and your basis
is zero. For confirmation, contact the company.
