Protection, growth and income
Annuities can help you retire with confidence.
How do annuities work?
You put money in
You buy an annuity with either a lump sum or a series of payments.
It goes to work
Your money can grow tax-deferred1 over time or you can turn it into guaranteed income that lasts as long as you want.
You get your money back
Depending on your annuity, you can get your money back either all at once or in regular payments over time.
What's an annuity?
An annuity is a long-term contract between you and an insurance company. There are several options. Some annuities are designed to provide immediate, guaranteed retirement income that lasts as long as you want—even the rest of your life. Others offer growth and can also provide steady, guaranteed income later in retirement.

There's more to learn
When it comes to your future income, it’s important to know exactly what you’re buying. Make sure you fully understand all of the terms and conditions of your contract before signing your name. Talk to your financial professional or insurance producer to find out if an annuity is right for you.
First Symetra offers a variety of annuities. Ask your financial professional, registered representative or [insurance producer] if an annuity is right for you.
1While nonqualified annuities offer the added benefit of tax deferral, in the case of qualified annuities, the tax deferral is provided by the retirement plan itself. No additional tax benefit is provided by placing qualified funds in an annuity. In the case of qualified annuities, you should focus on the benefits offered by the annuity itself to determine if the annuity is right for you.
