         Radius Rationale for California, Florida
         and Puerto Rico - Financial Results


         • The financial impact of higher than expected claims in
           California, Florida and Puerto Rico has been substantial.
         • Higher than expected claim costs have cost MassMutual
           $70 million over the 1996 - 98 period.


                               Actual                  Expected                A/E
                               Claims                  Claims                  Ratio
       CA/FL/PR                $203                    $133                    153%
       Other States            $495                    $522                      95%

         Radius Rationale for California, Florida
         and Puerto Rico - Financial Results
         • CA/FL/PR morbidity experience has consistently run 50%
           higher than the other states.
         • The CA/FL/PR experience exceeds the other states “across
           the Board” - by gender, waiting period, benefit period,
           occupation class for both individual and multi-life.
            – This is true for new products, dispelling the myth that we are
              suffering from past sins.
            – This is true for recent issue years even though we have
              tightened underwriting.
            – This is true for both MML and CML blocks.
         • Our competitors have also suffered large CA/FL/PR losses
           and have taken similar steps to address the business
           problem.

         Radius Rationale for California, Florida
         and Puerto Rico - Pricing Strategies
         • Recognition that CA/FL/PR subsidy cannot be eliminated
           solely by increasing premiums.
               – It would require a 55% rate surcharge to eliminate the CA/FL/PR
                 subsidy.
         • Reduce risk. Emphasis is placed on reducing benefits
           versus only increasing premiums.
         • Maintain higher compensation.
               – We could have reduced compensation to maintain lower rates, but
                 Field input showed a preference to maintain higher comp with
                 higher rates.
         • Maintain a competitive position in CA/FL/PR that is
           comparable to our position in the other states while
           maintaining sales growth consistent with other states.
         • Be competitive in the multi-life market.

               You Are Your Competition
         • You have the opportunity to sell an
           industry-leading portfolio with extremely
           strong compensation.
         • In most cases, according to MassMutual
           clients, your competition is not offering
           your clients DI.
         • If you don’t offer it to your clients, then
           You are the roadblock to your client
           having DI or a hole in their protection
           portfolio.

         • Your clients need DI.

           future of sales in your state. Your efforts
           in this respect DO make a difference.
         • Bottom Line: Be meticulous with your DI
           sales, but do sell DI. It’s a win-win for
           both you and your client.
