Discontinuation of Guaranteed
Universal Life Product Sales
Symetra has long held to our guiding principles of Value, Transparency and Sustainability (VTS). Due to the continued and prolonged low interest rate environment and competitive landscape, we have decided to discontinue sales of our guaranteed universal life insurance products, which include our currently sold Symetra UL-G and the previously suspended Symetra Survivorship UL-G.

Please see below for important dates and transition rules.


Dec. 31, 2020

All formal Symetra UL-G applications must be received at Symetra’s home office in good order (fully completed, signed and dated) to secure the product.  

Symetra UL-G will be removed from Symetra Life Illustrator and all other systems where the product is illustrated.

Jan. 29, 2021

Cases must be issued/paid. For 1035 exchange cases, the deadline will be extended if the only outstanding requirement is the receipt of 1035 funds.

We appreciate the business you have placed with us and look forward to serving your future life insurance needs. We remain committed to the life insurance space and to offering strong and valuable product solutions to your clients, including Symetra Protector and Accumulator Indexed Universal Life and Symetra Term Life.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
