Variable annuities are long-term investment products designed for retirement
purposes and are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk, and possible
loss of principal. Variable annuities contain both investment and insurance
components and have fees and charges, including mortality and expense,
administrative, and advisory fees. Optional features are available for an
additional charge. The annuity's value fluctuates with the market value of the
underlying investment options, and all assets accumulate tax-deferred.
Withdrawals of earnings are taxable as ordinary income and, if taken prior to
age 59½, may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax. Withdrawals will
reduce the death benefit and cash surrender value.
Investors are advised to consider the investment objectives, risks, and
charges and expenses of the variable annuity and its underlying investment
options carefully before investing. The applicable variable annuity prospectus
contains this and other important information about the variable annuity and
its underlying investment options. Please call 888‑868‑2583 for a free
prospectus. Read it carefully before investing or sending money. Products and
features are subject to state availability.
