Retirement Planning Made Easier


[music] MassMutual has been in
existence for 160 years. They’re catching up to us. We’ve been existence for 178. There’s something to be said for that. There’s something to be said for
an American company that survived and prospered and endured. You go to an expert to take care
of something as important as retirement, is the most
important planning you can do. We get stories all the time about
people that’ll spend a lot of money on a Martin guitar, having
never played the guitar in question, because they trust our company, our brand, and our history. They know what what they’re
going to get from us. I feel like I know what I’m
going to get from MassMutual. The website is great. Everything that you need
is on your fingertips. It’s very intuitive. It’s not like some of the websites
that you have for like banking where you have to dig in and
find what you’re looking for. Everything is out and easy to find. The calculator on RetireSmart.com
enables me or anyone to have a look at the potential for there to be either a
great prosperous future where money is not really a concern, the land of plenty. Or, I can switch that to say, “Man, I’m
really predicting some hard times here. How am I going to be
able to prepare for that?” Once a year, MassMutual gives a seminar, and everybody’s invited. You go and sit down, and they basically
explain to you how the investments work. When I walked out of there,
I felt much more comfortable. I find that MassMutual does offer
great investment education, especially for someone who’s inexperienced
with investments like myself. I just felt that they were there for you, that you had many opportunities,
many ways to invest your money. If you didn’t understand it,
they were there to help. Someone at the company
was here to talk to you. You could always talk to someone at MassMutual. You felt you were at a one-to-one basis. In a general presentation, you can
cover a lot of good information that everyone needs to know, but
everyone’s retirement is clearly going to be different. Everyone’s income is different. Everyone’s current
situation is different. The best thing that MassMutual offers
there is a one-on-one sit-down. With MassMutual, it’s the
people we know there. It isn’t just this big faceless company. It’s the individuals that
we work with directly, and that’s important to us. They’re available for the
participants when the trustees, the administrator, myself,
we can’t be available, they provide the record keeping
services and they provide the tools that our participants need to make
sure they have a secure retirement. They have worked diligently to
make sure that we’re educated, that the members are educated, and
that they are secure and feel secure. They’ve sent out some
wonderful individuals to us. I don’t know that the other
companies would do that, but I know that we’re happy
with what MassMutual has done. My retirement, I’m going to travel. I have three grandchildren. I do things with them now. I’ll be able to do more things for them also. I’m originally from Jamaica, so
I’d like to go back and stay for awhile. I think maybe I have
about maybe another 25 years before I retire. So I’m trying not
to think too far ahead, but at the same time, I am building
up enough funds to be able to do that successfully. I want to take the time now in my
youth to really invest my money, to make sure that it’s all taken care of. And that I don’t have to worry
about anything and that I can live comfortably and enjoy my retirement years. They’re forever away. [music]
