Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company has announced 2 new programs to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

MassMutual’s U.S. Insurance Group, Springfield, Mass., says it will make charitable donations of up to $3,000 to local cancer organizations that offer its Pearls of Wisdom financial education seminars during October.

The seminars, presented by agents, are aimed at increasing financial preparedness for individuals and families when breast cancer or other unexpected threats arise.

The company will also offer a new brochure explaining changes to MassMutual’s underwriting guidelines that reflect the more favorable long-term outlook for breast cancer survivors.
