North Carolina's governor says insurance giant MetLife Inc. plans to create 2,600 jobs in Charlotte and Cary by the end of 2015.

Gov. Pat McCrory's office said Thursday the big announcement comes after a committee approved a tax break that could be worth up to $89 million over 12 years if MetLife retains the jobs and invests $125 million in two new sites.

The new jobs would include product management, marketing, sales and customer support in Charlotte and information technology positions in Cary.
