Variable annuities are long-term investment products designed for
retirement purposes and are subject to market fluctuation, investment
risk, and possible loss of principal. Variable annuities contain both
investment and insurance components and have fees and charges, including
mortality and expense, administrative, and advisory fees. Optional
features are available for an additional charge. The annuity's value
fluctuates with the market value of the underlying investment options,
and all assets accumulate tax-deferred. Withdrawals of earnings are
taxable as ordinary income and, if taken prior to age 59½, may be
subject to an additional 10% federal tax. Withdrawals will reduce the
death benefit and cash surrender value.
Investors are advised to consider the investment objectives, risks,
and charges and expenses of the variable annuity and its underlying
investment options carefully before investing. The applicable
