The importance of financial literacy


It's important to learn about key aspects of financial health and how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits. Recent data1 from the National Financial Educators Council shows that “38% of individuals said their lack of financial literacy cost them at least $500 in 2022, including 15% who said it set them back by $10,000 or more.” Understanding what financial literacy is and applying it to your money goals is important, not only for the present, but also for the future. At MassMutual Ascend, we are committed to going above and beyond – so when it comes to your financial future, the impossible feels possible. One way to elevate your financial future could be with an annuity.

An annuity is a financial product that’s designed to protect and grow your money, and then provide a stream of guaranteed income. As a leading provider of annuities, we see our products as more than just contracts. Our annuities are transparent and easier to understand, so you always know what to expect.

According to a recent study2, 60% of non-retirees thought that their retirement savings were not on track in 2021. It’s important to consider your financial goals and how they play into your overall financial plan. Annuities can play a major role in your financial future by providing protection and growth, tax deferral and guaranteed income. At MassMutual Ascend, we offer a broad range of annuities to help meet your unique financial needs.
