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.

4. Rainbow Indexed Account 1 is made up of the following indexes: S&P 500®, Euro STOXX 50®, and S&P 500® Low Volatility.  The segment growth rate is equal to the weighted average of the index growth rates for each reference index. On the index credit date, the index growth rate for each reference index is ranked from highest to lowest and the applicable rank weight applied, using 50% of the highest performing account, 30% from the second highest, and 20% from the third.

5. A fixed rate loan will begin a 12-month lockout period during which no transfers from the fixed account to an indexed account will apply.

6. Only one loan rate type available at one time; may switch between loans once per year. 

7. Because of the risk involved to the client with variable interest rate loans, use caution when illustrating or discussing variable rate loans 

8. 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 the policyholder does 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.

9. The no-lapse guarantee value could be negative if monthly premium payments are not made on time. This may require you to pay a larger monthly premium in order to restore the no-lapse guarantee value to zero or greater. The no-lapse guarantee value has no impact on your policy’s cash value and cannot be surrendered or loaned against. Policy loans could cause the no-lapse guarantee value to be less than zero, which would require the repayment of the loan or the payment of additional premiums to restore the no-lapse guarantee value to zero or greater.

Additional agreements may be available. Agreements may be subject to additional costs and restrictions. Agreements may not be available in all states or may exist under a different name in various states and may not be available in combination with other agreements.

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 charges. Policyholders could lose money in these products.

Policy loans and withdrawals may create an adverse tax result in the event of lapse or policy surrender, and will reduce both the surrender value and death benefit. Withdrawals may be subject to taxation within the first fifteen years of the contract. Clients should consult their tax advisor when considering taking a policy loan.

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.

It is not intended for, nor can it be used by any taxpayer for the purpose of avoiding federal tax penalties. Taxpayers should seek the advice of their own advisors regarding any tax and legal issues specific to their situation.

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