Before investing, investors should carefully consider the investment
objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the variable annuity and its
underlying investment options. The current contract prospectus and underlying
fund prospectuses, which are contained in the same document, provide this and
other important information. Please contact your representative or the Company
to obtain the prospectuses. Please read the prospectuses carefully before
investing or sending money.

Portfolios that have a greater percentage of alternatives may have greater
risks, especially those including arbitrage, currency, leveraging and
commodities. This additional risk can offset the benefit of diversification.
Diversification does not assure a profit or guarantee against a loss in a
declining market. Although asset allocation among different asset categories
generally limits risk and exposure to any one category, the risk remains that
management may favor an asset category that performs poorly relative to the
other asset categories. Some of those risks include general economic risk,
geopolitical risk, commodity-price volatility, counterparty and settlement
risk, currency risk, derivatives risk, emerging markets risk, foreign
securities risk, high-yield bond exposure, noninvestment-grade bond exposure,
commonly known as junk bonds, index investing risk, industry concentration
risk, leveraging risk, market risk, prepayment risk, liquidity risk, real
estate investment risk, sector risk, short sales risk, temporary defensive
positions and large cash positions.

Please remember that a Jackson annuity is intended to be a long-term,
tax-deferred vehicle for retirement. An annuity's earnings are taxable as
ordinary income when withdrawn and, if taken before age 59 1/2, may be subject
to a 10% additional tax. Variable annuities involve investment risks and may
lose value.

The latest income date allowed is age 95, which is the required age to
annuitize or to take a lump sum. Please see the prospectus for important
information regarding the annuitization of a contract. The standard death
benefit is equal to contract value on the date of the claim and does not
include any additional guarantees.

Elite Access Fixed and Variable Annuity (VA650, VA660) is issued by Jackson
National Life Insurance Company (Home Office: Lansing, Michigan) and in New
York (VA650NY, VA660NY) by Jackson National Life Insurance Company of New York
(Home Office: Purchase, New York). Variable annuities are distributed by
Jackson National Life Distributors LLC, member FINRA. May not be available in
all states, and state variations may apply. This product has limitations and
restrictions, including withdrawal charges and excess interest adjustments
(interest rate adjustments in New York) where applicable. Jackson issues other
variable annuities with similar features, benefits, limitations and charges.
Discuss them with your representative or contact Jackson for more information.
