SYMETRA ACCUMULATOR IUL: INDEX CAP DECREASE EFFECTIVE MONDAY, SEPT. 16, 2019
Due to the continued low interest rate environment, increased hedging costs and ongoing market volatility, we will be decreasing Symetra Accumulator IUL’s index cap by 1% on the S&P 500® Index. While we are decreasing our caps on the S&P 500® Index, we will be increasing our participation rate on the JPMorgan ETF Efficiente® 5 Index 1-Year and 2-Year blended strategies.
These are our first cap and participation rate changes to the indexes since the launch of our Accumulator IUL product in October 2017. These changes will be effective September 16, 2019, and will impact all in-force policies and new business, including new premium, transfers (including DCA) and reallocations of matured segments. We will be updating our illustration software and systems to correspond with the dates below.

(This includes 1035 exchanges.)Sept. 14, 20191: Segments created on this date will receive the old cap rates; policies must be in-force and premium/and or transfer instructions received at Symetra no later than this date.
