MassMutual’s SpecialCare ProgramMassMutual’s SpecialCare program is proud to sponsor the Autism Society and Autism Speaks. These organizations raise awareness of autism and work to improve the lives of people on the autism spectrum and their families.
Life Care PlanningSpecialCare’s mission is to help educate families and caregivers of people with special needs about the importance of a life care plan* to help provide a secure financial future.
MassMutual SpecialCare planners are uniquely equipped to support families with dependents with autism and other special needs. They have received advanced training in estate and tax planning concepts, special needs trust, government programs, and the emotional dynamics of working with families caring for a person with special needs. They also have an affinity to the special needs market, and many are personally connected either as a caregiver or a family member of someone with special needs.
*A life care plan is a coordinated program of future care planning, financial, and legal strategies for people with disabilities and their families. A life care plan continually changes throughout an individual’s lifetime and is provided by a team that may include your legal and tax advisors as well as insurance and investment professionals.
