Continuing on our tradition of offering product solutions that we believe provide real customer value, we’re introducing new versions of Symetra Accumulator Ascent IUL and Protector IUL, effective April 28, 2023.
Stronger competitive positioning
Accumulator Ascent IUL: Even stronger cash accumulation potential and higher policy distributions.
Protector IUL: Even lower premiums and competitive guarantees.
Both our new and current IUL products will have improved index caps and participation rates (PDF) that will be effective with the May 15, 2023, index sweep date. These rates will apply to all new business, including new premium, transfers (including DCA) and reallocations of matured segments.
The current fixed account rates on our new IUL products will improve from 3.75% to 5.25%.
The bonus rate on our Putnam Index with Bonus Strategy (for both our current and new versions of the products) will increase from 0.75% to 1% for Accumulator Ascent and from 0.65% to 1% for Protector.
New Accelerated Death Benefit for Chronic Care Advantage Rider
Clients can access either 50% or 100% of the death benefit with a monthly payout of either 2% or 4%, depending on the acceleration and payout percentages they select.
When our new product versions launch on April 28, they will be in compliance with the revised Actuarial Guideline 49-A (AG 49-B), which is effective May 1, 2023.
