AgeUp for meAvailable for ages 50-75
Begin contributing to AgeUp when you’re between 50 and 75. Choose a flexible monthly premium as low as $25, and a target age between 91-100 to begin receiving monthly payouts.
Each monthly premium buys a slice of guaranteed income beginning at your target payout age. Over time, those slices stack up to become significant monthly payouts that last for life.
When you reach your target payout age, get guaranteed monthly checks for life. Your payouts are backed by MassMutual and can be used for anything you like, with no restrictions.

The minimum upfront cost for a traditional longevity annuity is $10,000, and the average initial contribution is $181,0001, but AgeUp is designed to be accessible to almost everyone. Instead of a single upfront payment, AgeUp lets you break the purchase into affordable monthly installments of as little as $25.
AgeUp payouts start later than most longevity annuities, which allows for greater monthly income, dollar for dollar.
A portion of each payout is your premiums being paid back to you.
Your premiums are conservatively invested by MassMutual, and part of each payout represents interest income. However, MassMutual takes on all the investment risk – so even if markets underperform, your guaranteed income amounts from AgeUp are set in stone and will never fluctuate.
Imagine a group of 10 friends are concerned about running out of money in retirement, so they each put $10,000 into a checking account, agreeing to split it evenly in 20 years. Unfortunately, only seven of them are alive 20 years later, so they each receive $14,286 instead of $10,000. The extra $4,286 each person received came from something called longevity credits (also known as “mortality credits”).
By dividing the funds among those who are alive, longevity credits allow groups of people to share the risk of outliving their retirement resources. They’re also an essential part of how pensions, Social Security, and longevity annuities can guarantee lifetime income.

Each slice of future income is locked in at the time of purchase, and your payout amounts are guaranteed by MassMutual, regardless of market performance.
Unlike savings and other liquid assets that can run out, AgeUp provides guaranteed income that will continue for the rest of your life - no matter how long that is.
On the downside, AgeUp isn’t liquid like stocks or savings accounts. There’s no early access to the money and no principal, so you should only consider AgeUp if...
