Account or the Guaranteed Interest Account are not subject to income taxes until there is a distribution from the policy. Taking a loan or a full or partial surrender from the policy could result in recognition of income for tax purposes.
Risk of Lapse Your policy will remain in force as long as the cash surrender value is enough to pay the monthly charges incurred under the policy. If the cash surrender value is no longer enough to pay the monthly charges, the policy will lapse, or end. We will alert you to an impending lapse situation and give you an opportunity to keep the policy in force by paying a specified amount. If your policy lapses, it may not be reinstated.
If you elect the Minimum Face Amount Rider it may result in higher cost of insurance deductions, depending on the minimum face amount and investment performance. Electing the Rider could therefore have a negative impact on policy value and increase the risk of policy lapse. Withdrawals, loans and associated loan interest can also negatively affect policy value, and increase the risk of policy lapse.
Investment Risk A comprehensive discussion of the risks of each fund purchased by an investment option of the Separate Account may be found in the
funds’ prospectuses. Each fund is subject to market fluctuations and the risks inherent with ownership of securities, and the policy owner assumes the risk of gain or loss according to the performance of the fund. There is no assurance that any fund will achieve its stated investment objective.
Transfer Risk Transfers or deposits to the Guaranteed Interest Account are generally limited to no more than $250,000 during any one week period. Transfers out of the Guaranteed Interest Account are limited to one transfer per year. The amount you may transfer out of the Guaranteed Interest Account is limited based on a schedule described later in this prospectus. We reserve the right to reject or restrict transfers if an underlying mutual fund or we determine the transfers reflect a disruptive trading. Minimum balance and minimum transfer limits apply.
The following tables describe the fees, and expenses that you will pay when buying, owning and surrendering the policy. The first table describes the fees and expenses that you will pay at the time that you buy the policy, surrender the policy, or transfer cash value between investment options.
