Anytime, Anywhere Access

In 2016, when Mutual of America embarked on its strategic plan to modernize its technology, no one could have anticipated COVID-19 and the resulting shift to a hybrid work environment. Yet, our new advanced administration and recordkeeping technology platform was built for this moment.

By providing anytime, anywhere access to next-generation plan administration tools and information, our shift to a cloud-based, digital-first platform will enable us to meet the needs of plan sponsors today—and as those needs evolve over time.
