IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES

1 Loans will accrue interest. Loans and withdrawals may generate an income tax liability, reduce the Account Value and the Death Benefit, and may cause the policy to lapse. Sufficient premium and account value are necessary to cover insurance costs. Index returns do not guarantee that the policy will stay in force.
2 At the time of application, either the Index Accounts with the 1% minimum guaranteed interest rate or the Index Accounts with the 0% minimum guaranteed interest rate must be selected. The Index Accounts with the 0% minimum guaranteed interest rate may have a higher Index Cap Rate, Index Participation Rate, and Index Threshold Rate or a lower Index Spread Rate, as applicable, than the Index Accounts with the 1% minimum guaranteed interest rate during the same period, but this is not guaranteed. The Index Accounts selected at the time of application cannot be changed after the policy is issued. The 0% minimum guaranteed interest rate option is not available in IN.
3 Death Benefits from a life insurance policy are generally paid income tax-free to policy beneficiaries.
4 Accelerated death benefits will reduce the death benefit and may affect the available loan amount and other policy values.
5 Withdrawals, loans and late payments may require that additional premium be paid to keep the No-Lapse Guarantee active.
6 Disability Benefit Rider in GA, MD and OK.
7 Guaranteed Insurability Rider in MD and TX.
8 Covered Person Term Rider in NJ. Subject to insurability.

IUL is a Universal Life policy. It has insurance related costs. Premiums paid must produce sufficient cash value to pay insurance charges. Indexed returns do not protect against lapse if premiums and returns do not provide sufficient cash value to cover loan interest and insurance costs. Your clients must understand that loan risk means loans may well not be zero cost. Such loan risk and interest costs will reduce account value and will contribute to a risk of policy lapse if account value becomes insufficient to cover charges.
