Freedom DateSM 5

Upon reaching the Freedom Date and the accumulation value is greater than zero:

  1. The accumulation value will no longer be reduced for lifetime payment amounts (LPAs).
  2. There is full access to the accumulation value without affecting the LPAs.
  3. The GLWB charge will no longer be assessed.

The Freedom Date is determined based on age at issue. For issue ages 60 or older, the Freedom Date applies after the 20th contract anniversary. For issue ages less than 60, the Freedom Date applies after the 25th contract anniversary.6

Penalty-free withdrawal amount7

Greater of: 10% of premium (less withdrawals) or any partial withdrawal taken as part of the GLWB feature or required minimum distributions (RMDs)

1 There is a requirement of a maximum of 80% equity allocation and a minimum of 60% equity allocation with the remaining allocated in bonds.

2 Separate account annual expenses include mortality and expense (M&E) and administrative charges. This fee is set for the life of the contract and assessed on a daily basis.

3 The roll-up percentage is not applied to the accumulation value, only to the GLWB value. The GLWB value is not available for withdrawal, surrender or as a death benefit. The roll-up is applied until the earliest of the first withdrawal, the maximum GLWB value has been reached, the Freedom DateSM has been achieved or when lifetime income payments have been elected.

4 Purchases made while this practice is in place will not be charged more than 1.45%, divided by 4, of the GLWB value assessed on a contract quarterly basis deducted from the accumulation value for the duration of their contract. Features offered by current company practice are not guaranteed by the contract, and the company reserves the discretion to change its practice at any time.

5 All contract guarantees, including the Freedom DateSM, are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company and do not apply to the variable subaccounts.

6 Based on single owner. If joint ownership applies, it is based on the younger owner. If the owner is non-natural, it is based on the age of the annuitant.

7 The free withdrawal amount is available for withdrawal without a surrender charge. The amount is calculated at the beginning of each contract year. For withdrawals occurring in the first contract year, the amount calculated is based on the initial premium received. The annual free withdrawal amount is noncumulative. While you always have access to your money, for withdrawals taken in excess of this amount, a surrender charge will apply. In certain circumstances, partial withdrawals during a contract year in excess of the greater of the lifetime payment amount or the required minimum distribution will negatively impact the lifetime payment amount and the GLWB value. Remaining premium is the sum of the premium payments made less any withdrawals taken.
