Abstract: In a recent paper we showed that the Minimal R-symmetric Supersymmetric Standard Model (MRSSM) can accommodate the observed 125 GeV Higgs boson as the lightest scalar of the model in agreement with electroweak precision observables, in particular with the W boson mass and T parameter. Here we explore a scenario with the light singlet (and bino-singlino) state in which the second-lightest scalar takes the role of the SM-like boson with mass close to 125 GeV. In such a case the second-lightest Higgs state gets pushed up via mixing already at tree-level and thereby reducing the required loop correction. Unlike in the NMSSM, the light singlet is necessarily connected with a light neutralino which naturally appears as a promising dark matter candidate. We show that dark matter and LHC searches place further bounds on this scenario and point out parameter regions, which are viable and of interest for LHC Run II and upcoming dark matter experiments.
