Tribal group life insurance

Protecting traditions for future generations

The loss of a tribal member or shareholder is a time for grief, remembrance and respect. Traditional burial ceremonies are a way to honor the life of a valued friend or loved one while teaching younger generations about the unique customs of their culture.

Symetra tribal group life insurance can help provide financial support to tribal members and shareholders following the death of a loved one.
