MassMutual Creates Dedicated Teams for Executive Benefits Producers

July 11, 2008 ( - MassMutual's Executive Benefits and Disability Income and Account Services unit has announced the creation of small, cohesive servicing teams that will be assigned permanently to top producers and relationship managers.

The goal in providing dedicated teams is to ensure continuity, responsiveness, and high levels of service for top producers and their clients, the announcement said. The firm believes the move will allow it to provide the level of support demanded by employers, particularly professional services firms, corporations, universities ,and hospitals, among whom voluntary disability income and Executive Group Life (EGL) insurance policies are especially popular.

MassMutual’s EGL policies:

  • provide for higher limits of guaranteed issue coverage than available through typical group plans;
  • are fully portable, allowing for continuation of coverage after insured employees separate from service;
  • maintain benefit levels even after retirement;
  • do not have surrender charges; and
  • offer easy, online enrollment that minimizes work for advisers and the employer’s HR and benefits staff.

In addition, MassMutual said EGL policies are ideal for “executive carve-outs” that help employers reduce their over-all cost of employee life insurance by separating the executive team from the group insurance pool.
