Best answer
A) the phrase of inidividuals is trying to say that it is the individual's policies, but the correct sense is "policies for individuals"
B) It is unclear what does "they" refer to, because MetLife is a company and hence singular. WRONG
C) "is saying" is wrong
D) all the other problems are eliminated in this. CORRECT
E) "be stopping" awkward and probably incorrect too.

The original sentence has three grammatical errors:
1. Tense error - with "has said" (present tense), it should be "will" and not "would"
2. Preposition error - instead of "policies of individuals", it should be "policies for individuals"
3. Preposition error - "since" should be used only for past events; here it is a future event, therefore "after"
Choice C eliminates all the three errors.
