Prospectus & Mutual Fund
The tax-deferral benefit offered by annuities provides no additional tax benefit if they are held in tax-qualified accounts such as IRA, 403(b), 457, or 401(k). Special rules governing annuities issued in connection with a tax-qualified retirement plan restrict the amount that can be contributed to the contract during any year.

Before investing, carefully read the prospectus(es) or summary prospectus(es) which contain information about investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses and other information all of which should be carefully considered. For current prospectus(es) call (800) 874-6910. Investing involves risk. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate and, when redeemed, the investment may be worth more or less than the original purchase price.

Asset allocation cannot guarantee a profit or ensure against loss.

Variable Annuity
Investors should carefully consider a variable annuity’s risks, charges, limitations and expenses, as well as the risks, charges, expenses and investment objectives of the underlying investment options. Other information about variable annuities is provided in the product and underlying fund prospectus(es). For current prospectus(es), call (800) 874-6910.

Fixed Annuity
Withdrawals from annuities, including partial withdrawals and surrenders, may be taxable. If you take a taxable withdrawal before age 59½, you may have to pay a 10% penalty to the IRS on the amount of gain in your contract, in addition to your normal income taxes.

The tax-deferral benefit offered by annuities provides no additional tax benefit if they are held in tax-qualified accounts such as IRA, 403(b) or 401(k).
