When you choose whole life insurance to protect those who matter most, you choose protection that is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Your premium will never go up and the guaranteed coverage amount won’t change. So whether you just experienced the birth of your first child, or you are several years into your retirement, you can feel the comfort of knowing you’re covered.
Build Cash Value
Many people choose whole life insurance because it can help them reach financial goals while they are living. A whole life policy accumulates cash value which is guaranteed to increase over time. You can borrow from your policy for many different reasons, including to help pay for college, supplement your retirement income, or provide cash for emergencies1.
Opportunity to Earn Dividends
Whole life policyowners are also eligible to receive dividends. Any dividends you receive can be used to increase your life insurance protection and grow your cash value. Although they are not guaranteed, MassMutual has paid dividends to eligible participating policyowners consistently since the 1860s.
