1 SecurePay Protector is available at issue for 1.40% (1.50% with RightTime) of the benefit base annually.

2 If on a contract anniversary, the contract value is less than 50% of the current benefit base, the 7% guaranteed growth rate will be suspended during that contract year, and the benefit base will remain unchanged. The 7% guaranteed growth rate will continue to be available annually until 10 benefit base increases have occurred or until benefit withdrawals have begun, if earlier.

3 Withdrawal rate of 6% at age 65 is for a single lifetime payout.

4 If contract value falls to zero due to excess withdrawals the optional income benefit will terminate and payments will end. If contract value is reduced to zero due to benefit withdrawals, the contract will be annuitized and monthly income payments will begin in an amount equal to the last Annual Withdrawal Amount, divided by 12.
