SPRINGFIELD, Mass.--The MassMutual Financial Group announced today that it has launched a new section of its consumer Web site  that includes useful information about how financial products and services can  help individuals prepare for life events and meet new life challenges.  Called  "Learn," the material is included on the "For Individuals" portion of massmutual.com, effective immediately.

"Consumers are increasingly researching products and services online, and  our aim is to make our Web site as useful as possible in the decision-making  process," said Marie Politis, assistant vice president of ebusiness at  Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co.  "By enhancing the  product-selection process, MassMutual's Web site assists consumers in what can be a daunting process for some -- selecting products or services that help meet their specific needs."

The new "Learn" portion of the Web site includes three subsections --
"Prepare for Life's Events," "Educational Articles" and "Calculators" -- that contain information and financial calculators for topics such as education planning, estate planning, insurance, personal finance and retirement. 

"Prepare for Life's Events" gives consumers information to help them  address financial concerns for 16 different life events, including  changing/losing a job, retirement, buying a home, getting married,  establishing an estate plan and providing elder care.

"Educational Articles" address topics of general interest as well as
specific topics.  For example, general articles can range from "Ten Ways to  Stretch Your Money" to "Estimating College Costs," while specific-topic articles can include "Disability Income Insurance: Some Features Say It All" and "COBRA:  Continuing Health Care Coverage."

"Financial Calculators" includes 32 financial calculators that enable  consumers to help plan their future.  Calculators are available to help with a variety of financial issues, including personal finance and budgeting;  retirement planning; mortgage and loan management; tax and insurance planning;  and business planning.
