WHY SYMETRA SURVIVORSHIP UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE?
Legacy Planning and Guarantees
When you purchase SUL-G 1.0 Survivorship Universal Life Insurance, you are buying a policy that helps ensure your death benefit coverage will be guaranteed and your legacy planning goals are being met. Your policy can be an effective tool for estate planning and wealth transfer, as well as for business-protection needs. When used as part of an estate-planning strategy utilizing an Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust (ILIT), the death benefit will generally pass to your beneficiaries free of federal and estate taxes.1
With the Lapse Protection Benefit, you can ensure that the policy will be in force for as long as you’d like, without regard to factors such as policy charges and changes in interest rates that are outside of your control. As long as sufficient premium payments are made on a timely basis (as illustrated), no unscheduled loans or partial withdrawals are taken, and the policy loan value does not exceed the policy’s cash surrender value, the insurance coverage will remain in effect.
Charitable Giving Benefit pays an additional benefit to the qualified charity of choice upon death of the surviving insured.4
Estate Preservation Rider provides additional term life insurance coverage if both insureds die within the first four years of the policy.5
