The events include two online participant webisodes and one Web-based sponsor seminar. The first webisode is part of MassMutual's SmartView series on the company's RetireSmart YouTube channel. Called “Should I Borrow From My 401(k),” it will launch Monday, October 22 at 2:00 p.m. ET. During the three-minute webisode, real people will talk about money and retirement issues in simple terms to help bring these issues to life for individual savers.
The second webisode called “Supersize Your Savings” is focused on Gen Y 401(k) participants and conveys the importance of starting early in a fun and effective way. It can be viewed on MassMutual's RetireSmart participant website at www.retiresmart.com.
MassMutual Retirement Services will also host a plan sponsor seminar titled “Participants Talk Retirement” on October 23 at 2 p.m. ET. The seminar will share insights gleaned from recent interviews conducted by MassMutual with its retirement plan participants and will give sponsors actionable information to help them promote their retirement benefit to their employees as effectively as possible. “All of these events and seminars have just one goal—
to help Americans plan and save enough so they can retire with confidence,” said Elaine Sarsynski, executive vice president of MassMutual's Retirement Services Division and chairman and CEO of MassMutual International LLC.
