October 6, 2004 ( - MassMutual's Retirement Service division has announced the enhancement of its Total Retirement Center, which is available to its defined benefit, defined contribution, and total retirement services plan sponsors.

The enhancements also include immediate feedback and error correction on files, expanded e-mail capabilities, and a file mapping system that enables MassMutual to accommodate differing file formats.

These enhancements come on the heels of others at MassMutual’s online portal, where changes were made to loan monitoring systems, payroll systems and updates, and web-based plan processing.
