APPENDIX C Systematic Withdrawal Program

# Payment Type

There are two payment types available under all Certificates (#1 & 2) and three that are available only if the owner is under age 59-1/2 at time of the first payment (#3-5). We will not set up any payment type you select if we determine that the first payment amount will be less than \$100.

1.

Percentage Method. Each Certificate Year we pay you equal periodic payments based on the annual withdrawal of a specified percentage of your Certificate Value. The percentage you select may not exceed 10%. We annually redetermine the amount of your equal periodic payments.

To determine your equal periodic payment amount, we first multiply the selected percentage times your Certificate Value on the date of your first payment in each Certificate Year. We then divide that amount by the number of periods in a year. We recalculate the amount of your equal periodic payments at the beginning of each Certificate Year based on your Certificate Value at that time.

In the first Certificate Year of your participation in our Systematic Withdrawal Program, we calculate your equal periodic payments as described above, but we will only make as many payments as there are periods left in the Certificate Year. For example, if at the beginning of a Certificate Year your Certificate Value was \$120,000 and you wanted to withdraw 10% in equal monthly payments, we would pay you \$12,000 in 12 monthly payments of \$1,000 each. However, if you started your Systematic Withdrawal Program three months into that Certificate Year, we would pay you \$9,000 in 9 monthly payments of \$1,000 each, and then we would recalculate your monthly payment amount. Accordingly, you would receive less than 10% of your Certificate Value in the first Certificate Year of your participation in this program.

• 2.

Net Amount Method. You specify a set dollar amount for each withdrawal of at least \$100. In the event a surrender charge is applicable to all or part of a withdrawal because your specified amount exceeds the "free withdrawal amounts", we will increase the withdrawal amount in order to create a net withdrawal amount equal to your specified amount.

• 3.

IRS Fixed Amortization Method. The systematic withdrawal amount will remain the same during the entire life expectancy period. We will calculate the payment amount based on the fixed amortization method described in Revenue Ruling 2002-62, using your Certificate Value on the date of the first payment, your life expectancy or the joint life and last survivor expectancy of you and your designated beneficiary based on your attained age(s) on the date of the first payment, and an interest rate equal to the IRS's 120% Mid-Term Applicable Federal Rate (AFR) for the month prior to the month in which distributions start unless you direct us to use the AFR for another month permitted by Revenue Policy 2002-62.

4.

IRS Fixed Annuitization Method. The systematic withdrawal amount will remain the same during the entire life expectancy period. We will calculate the payment amount based on the annuity factor method described in Revenue Ruling 2002-62, using your Certificate Value on the date of the first payment and an annuity factor, which is the present value of an annuity of \$1 per year beginning at your attained age and continuing for your life. We derive the annuity factor using the mortality table specified in the Revenue Ruling and an interest rate equal to the IRS's 120% Mid-Term Applicable Federal Rate for the month prior to the month in which distributions start unless you direct us to use the AFR for another month permitted by Revenue Ruling 2002- 62.

5.

IRS Minimum Distribution Method. The systematic withdrawal amount will change each year during the life expectancy period. We will calculate the annual payment amount based on the minimum distribution method described in Revenue Ruling 2002-62, by dividing your current Certificate Value at the time of each year’s calculation by your then current life expectancy or the then current joint life and last survivor expectancy of you and your designated beneficiary.
