Symetra Life Insurance Company Key Developments
Symetra Life Insurance Introduces Enhanced Death Benefit Rider
Nov 7 14
Symetra Life Insurance Company has introduced an enhanced death benefit rider to its suite of fixed indexed annuity, or FIA, products. The optional feature is available on select Symetra fixed indexed annuities, including Symetra Edge Pro Fixed Indexed Annuity, and is designed to provide beneficiaries with a potentially larger death benefit than they would otherwise receive from an annuity contract. The enhanced death benefit rider may appeal to customers seeking the stability and safety of a fixed indexed annuity, but who want the potential to leave a little 'extra' to their beneficiaries. This may mean placing a higher priority on enhancing the wealth transfer ability of the FIA than maximizing the annuity's value for the contract holder's use. The enhanced death benefit rider is effective and the rider charge is deducted at the end of the first interest term with no extended waiting period. A full lump-sum death benefit is available to beneficiaries, with no annuitization requirement. Annual rollup percentage of 7% simple interest for a rollup period of 10 years is available. It is available for issue for 0-75 ages, and annual charge is 0.90% of the enhanced death benefit amount. Sold through banks and broker-dealers, Symetra Edge Pro is designed to help meet the retirement planning needs of customers looking for diversification and principal protection. The product gives clients the choice of two index options, each offering two additional interest crediting choices. It offers a fixed account option and guaranteed minimum value feature, and four no-cost options for contract holders to access their money during the five- or seven-year surrender charge period.
