MassMutual announces $3B of free life insurance for healthcare workers

MassMutual announced the launch of MassMutual HealthBridge for frontline healthcare workers across Massachusetts and Connecticut that will provide local healthcare workers no-cost policies of up to $25,000 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All active employees of licensed hospitals, urgent care centers or emergency medical services providers in Massachusetts and Connecticut, the primary operational locations for many of MassMutual’s employees, whose jobs may involve occupational exposure to the virus are eligible for the 3-year term life policies. By uploading proof of employment and filling out a short application on the HealthBridge page, qualified healthcare workers will receive this free element of financial protection – completed fully online – from MassMutual.

HealthBridge, totaling $3 billion of insurance coverage, is an extension of MassMutual’s current LifeBridge program, which has been providing free life insurance for nearly two decades to income-eligible families to help children with educational expenses in the event a parent or guardian passes away.

Applications will begin to be accepted by the end of April.
