In the more than 170 years since MassMutual was founded — through profound social and economic change — one thing that has not wavered is our purpose: we help people secure their future and protect the ones they love.

Our focus on mutuality and longevity goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to sustainability.

Sustainability and Mutuality

As a mutual company, we operate for the benefit of our members and participating policyowners, which allows us to manage the company with a focus on their long-term interests. Our commitment to sustainability is integral to how we deliver value to our policyowners, customers, employees, communities, and the planet we share.
