Symetra Introducing New Versions of Symetra IUL

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.

Highlights include:

  • Stronger competitive positioning
  • Accumulator Ascent IUL: Even stronger cash accumulation potential and higher policy distributions.
  • Protector IUL: Even lower premiums and competitive guarantees.
  • Together with each products’ low policy charges and high target premiums, you can feel confident knowing you’re getting two of the most competitive IUL products (PDF) around.

Higher index cap, participation rates and bonuses

  • 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

  • Our new optional rider (PDF) will provide additional protection against the costs associated with chronic illnesses.
  • 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.
