1. Uncapped indexed account participation rates are subject to change and may be less than 100%. This could have the impact of the indexed account credit being less than the change in the reference index.

2. The short-term loan provision provides for interest waiver if the loan is paid in full within 90 days of the date the loan was taken. In the event you do not repay the loan in full within 90 days, interest and other policy loan provisions will apply as of the date the loan was taken. Additional restrictions may apply.

3. Minnesota Life and Securian Life competitive research.

The Indexed Universal Life Series is designed to provide life insurance protection. While the interest crediting options available with the product are attractive for cash value accumulation, your fundamental objective in buying this product should be the life insurance protection provided to you and your family or business.

All indexed accounts available with the Indexed Universal Life Series employ a point-to-point interest crediting method with one-year index segments—except where noted—established monthly. Interest credits for any index segment may range from a minimum (0% or 1%) up to the maximum (which may be unlimited for some accounts) for that segment. These policies guarantee that the total interest credited over the life of the policies will not be less than a 2.00% effective annual interest rate.

Product features and availability may vary by state.

Insurance policy guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

Please keep in mind that the primary reason to purchase a life insurance product is the death benefit.

Life insurance products contain fees, such as mortality and expense charges (which may increase over time), and may contain restrictions, such as surrender periods.
