About Us

Society of Grownups, a MassMutual learning initiative, is a financial wellness resource created by trusted, credible professionals to provide your employees with easy access to timely and relevant educational content.

Who We Are

Society of Grownups materials are produced by a group at MassMutual with an unwavering commitment to providing financial literacy resources for our customers. Between us, we have over 100 years in corporate planning, training and product management, and our group includes a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM Professional (CFP) with 25 years’ experience. Our team is based in Boston, MA.

All of our video courses are taught by CFPs, and all of our content is created by experts and vetted by our CFP.

Our Philosophy

We believe financial education should teach without having to sell a product. We believe it should be written in accessible language for all to understand. We believe educational materials should be easy to search and offer answers to specific questions. Most of our content can be consumed in 5-10 minutes to meet the needs of today's busy worker.

Our Evolution

2014

Society of Grownups opened its doors as a brick-and-mortar storefront in Brookline, MA, where we offered financial advice, classes, and community to millennials in the greater Boston area.

2017

In 2017, the program was moved to a completely online format to extend the resources to a broader audience. The website was expanded to house the library.

2019

Recognizing that financial education is an important component of overall wellness, Society of Grownups was relaunched as a benefit program for our clients to support their employee needs.
