Mass Mutual to close in Charlotte, relocating hundreds of jobs

Mass Mutual Life Insurance Company in south Charlotte plans to relocate approximately 300 positions to Massachusetts over the next few years, according to a spokesperson for the company. 

The company said it's part of a U.S. wide consolidation project. The positions will go to the company's Springfield Headquarters or Boston, the spokesperson said. 

The move is part of a Mass Mutual announcement this week of plans to expand the firm's footprint in its home state, where it expects to increase it's workforce. 

Mass Mutual says it plans to keep other offices only in New York, Phoenix, and Amherst, Mass.
