Integrated investment and de-risking strategies designed to “simplify the complex”

Our integrated investment and de-risking solutions provide transparency and can help meet your long-term defined benefit plan financial goals.

Our investment and risk management skills combined with our pension administration expertise help us to create customized solutions to keep your plan costs low and its funding status met.

No matter where your company’s defined benefit plan is in its lifecycle — implementation, active, closed, frozen or on target to be terminated — our expertise and flexible service models can support all aspects of your plan.

Plan Administration and Actuarial Consulting

Whether you intend to sustain, freeze or terminate your defined benefit plan, stabilizing costs and getting your plan to a healthy level of funding are important objectives.

MassMutual's investment and actuarial support teams can work with you and your plan's advisor to help project contributions and benefit payments, and help optimize your plan's investment portfolio by finding an optimal balance between return-seeking assets and the relative stability of fixed income investments.

Our consulting actuaries focus on defined benefit plans and average more than 20 years of experience. In addition, our support model includes strategic consulting on many aspects of your plan to help you set the right funding path to meet your business goals.

Investment Management

Our investment management team will work closely with you and your plan's advisors with respect to asset allocation, manager selection, and monitoring.

With our dedicated investment research and consulting professionals, we have the expertise to help you and your plan's advisors navigate the defined benefit investment landscape.

Our practitioners can conduct due diligence and client consulting, and can deliver real-time market insights to clients and advisors.

MassMutual Premier Funds and Select Funds feature portfolio management from some of the most highly regarded institutional, retail mutual fund, and boutique firms in the industry.

Participant Communication and Education

Sponsoring a defined benefit or cash balance plan is a significant commitment that may not be apparent to your employees.

MassMutual's RetireSmartSM participant communication program is a comprehensive approach to building employee appreciation of these retirement benefits through understanding. This can occur through online account access and interactive planning tools, account statements mailed to homes, and access to our call center.
