  • Symetra Enhances Registered Index-Linked Annuities Suite

    July 19, 2022 by Symetra

    BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Amidst ongoing market volatility, Symetra Life Insurance Company today announced new enhancements to its suite of registered index-linked annuities (RILAs), including new indexed account choices for Symetra Trek® Plus, and a new Auto Return Lock feature available for all RILAs.

    • Symetra Trek® Plus new indexed account options—Symetra added five new optional indexed account choices with a 10% buffer, 1-year term, and 1% charge. Symetra now offers even more competitive 1-year cap rates for a RILA product.
    • New Auto Return Lock—Symetra also enhanced the Return Lock feature with an automatic option. Return Lock allows Symetra RILA contract holders to lock in the value of any indexed account in which they have allocated money, any day during the interest term, effective the next business day. Auto Return Lock enables a customer or their financial professional to set a target return percentage to automatically initiate a Return Lock.

    “The addition of the new accounts and the Auto Return Lock continues Symetra’s commitment to offer registered representatives and their clients transparent, flexible options that are designed to add value and fit customer needs in today’s marketplace. We believe these enhancements offer efficient, customer-friendly solutions in volatile times,” said Kevin Rabin, senior vice president, Retirement Products.

    Symetra RILAs are single-premium deferred annuities with index-linked interest options providing growth potential and some downside protection.

    Symetra entered the RILA marketplace in March 2019 with Symetra Trek®. Symetra RILAs have been recognized by Barron’s on their annual ‘Top Annuities’ list for three consecutive years, 2019-2021.1

    Securities are offered through Symetra Securities, Inc. (SSI). Member FINRA.

    Symetra Trek Plus is an individual single-premium deferred annuity contract with index-linked interest options issued by Symetra Life Insurance Company (SLIC). Contract form number is RSC-0559 3/21 form in most states. In Idaho, contract form number is RSC-0559/ID 3/21. Products, features, terms and conditions may vary by state and may not be available in all U.S. states or any U.S. territory.

    SSI and SLIC are affiliates and are both located at 777 108th Avenue NE, Suite 1200, Bellevue, WA 98004-5135. Each company is responsible for its own financial obligations.

    Guarantees and benefits are subject to the claims-paying ability of Symetra Life Insurance Company. Symetra registered index-linked annuities have indexed accounts and a fixed account. Interest credited to the indexed accounts is affected by the value of outside indexes. Values based on the performance of any index are not guaranteed, and the contract value may decrease. The contract does not directly participate in any outside investment.

    The indexed accounts with a charge will incur an annual charge that will reduce the contract value, and do not guarantee performance any greater than the indexed accounts without a charge.

    If the Return Lock feature is exercised, no indexed interest will be credited to the indexed account at the end of the interest term. The indexed account charge, if any, is applied at the time of the Return Lock.

    The performance of an index does not reflect the payment or reinvestment of dividends.

    It is not possible to invest in an index.

    The fixed account interest rate, indexed interest caps, participation rates and trigger rates are reset at the beginning of each interest term. Subsequent rates and caps may be higher or lower than the initial rates and caps, but they will never be less than the guaranteed minimums stated in the contract.
