service minded

We serve two million customers through a nationwide network of financial institutions, broker-dealers, independent agents and advisors and benefits consultants.

Our annuities, benefits and life insurance products help people achieve a secure retirement, businesses provide valued benefits to their employees, and families recover from personal loss.

We are a pioneer in medical stop loss insurance and a leader in fixed deferred annuity sales through banks.

 


GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Three guiding principles—Value, Transparency and Sustainability, or VTS—define how we do business inside and out. VTS is what we promise to our customers and partners every day in our products and interactions. What does it mean?

 VTS
  Value: We provide products and solutions people need at competitive prices, and we strive to back them up with outstanding service.
  Transparency:

We communicate clearly and openly. We build products that people can understand.

  Sustainability: Our products stand the test of time. We’re financially disciplined so we’ll be here when customers need us.

 

COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY

We aim to be a thoughtful, responsible corporate citizen that serves communities where we live and work.

 

Our Giving Priorities

  • 797 charitable organizations nationwide that we contributed to in 2016.
  • 4,261 hours invested in employee volunteer service.
  • 57.4% of our employees contribute to nonprofits through our giving campaign.

 

 

REACHING HIGHER

Our commitment to helping people reach ​higher and fly farther is reflected in our sponsorships and advertising.

 

Sports Illustrated Rising Stars 
As the sponsor of Sports Illustrated Rising Stars, Symetra recognizes emerging talents in amateur and professional sports. These up-and-comers are profiled in SI’s digital and print media throughout ​the year.
The Symetra Tour—Road to the LPGA 
Sponsoring the world’s largest international women’s development tour is our way of helping rising stars of women’s golf make their dreams of a career on the LPGA tour come true. More than 100 alumnae of the Symetra Tour have earned LPGA membership.
Symetra Heroes in the Classroom®
Sometimes all it takes for students to achieve their full potential is someone who believes in them. Each year—in partnership with the Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks—we are proud to honor 32 K-12 school teachers who do just that.
