Credited interest rates

Base interest rate. A fixed interest rate guaranteed for two years for each purchase payment made. Each time you make a purchase payment, the base rate that is applicable at the time will apply. This means that base rates for individual purchase payments may differ, but each will be guaranteed for two years. One-year enhanced interest rate. MassMutual Odyssey Select may offer an enhanced interest rate on individual purchase payments received in contract years one through four. If an enhanced rate is offered on a purchase payment, it would be based on rates in effect at the time of purchase payment and would be guaranteed to remain in effect for one year from that date. Enhanced interest rates are offered at MassMutual’s discretion and may be discontinued at any time. If an enhanced rate is discontinued, purchase payments received after that time would receive the base interest rate. Renewal interest rate. After each purchase payment’s two-year interest rate guarantee period ends, interest will be credited to the purchase payment at a renewal rate for a period of time determined by MassMutual. Currently, renewal rates are guaranteed for one year and may be higher or lower than the base rate. Any interest rate applied to purchase payments throughout the life of your contract will never be less than the minimum interest rate specified in your contract. Contract minimums are subject to the laws of the state where the contract was issued.

Partial surrender*

Minimum: $250. Available as long as contract value does not fall below minimum contract requirements.

Fixed Interest Rate – MassMutual Stable Voyage offers a fixed interest rate that is guaranteed not to change for a specific period of time called the guarantee period. Guarantee Periods – There are two types of guarantee periods: • Initial guarantee period – Begins when you purchase your contract and continues for five, seven or nine years depending on the period you choose. All periods may not always be available. • Renewal guarantee period † – At the end of the initial guarantee period, you can renew your contract for a period of one, five, seven or nine years (if period is available at that time). Keep in mind that if you choose to renew into another guarantee period, you cannot choose a period that is greater than one year if it would extend beyond the oldest contract owner’s maximum maturity date (age 90 or ten years after issue). A new surrender charge schedule begins for each renewal guarantee period that is longer than one year. Window Period – As each guarantee period approaches its end, you will have a 30-day window period. During this time you must decide whether to: • Renew into a new long-term renewal guarantee period.† Surrender charge period restarts. • Renew into a one-year renewal guarantee period (no surrender charge). • Take a partial or full withdrawal (no surrender charge). • Fully or partially annuitize the contract value (no surrender charge). Any interest rate applied to purchase payments throughout the life of your contract will never be less than the minimum interest rate specified in your contract. Contract minimums are subject to the laws of the state where the contract was issued. † Contract owners in Florida who are age 65 or older at contract issue may only choose the one-year

guarantee period as a renewal option.

Dividend interest rates for participating life insurance policies The way companies apply dividend interest rates to calculate dividends varies. Some companies quote gross rates. Others, including MassMutual, quote rates that are net of investment expenses only, while yet others quote rates that take additional items into consideration.

The dividend interest rate is used to determine the investment component of dividends; it is not the rate of return on the policy. Dividends include an investment component, a mortality component and an expense component. Therefore, dividend interest rates should not be used as the sole basis for comparing insurers. Dividends are not guaranteed.

What are policy dividends? At Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), our eligible participating policyowners receive an equitable portion of the company’s divisible surplus as a dividend, which are generally declared and paid annually, but are not guaranteed. Divisible surplus is the amount paid out after the company sets aside the funds required to meet contractual obligations, operating expenses, contingencies and for general business purposes. It’s important to understand that divisible surplus must be achieved in order to pay dividends. This is why the payment of dividends on any particular policy is not guaranteed. A history of dividends to eligible participating policyowners consistently since the 1860s Dividends can help policyowners build more value in their participating policies, reinforcing our policy base and our overall financial strength. The pages that follow show dividends to policyowners back to the year 1900.
