You should read the prospectus for the variable annuity contract or variable life policy that you want to purchase to learn about purchasing a contract and selecting your investment options. That prospectus also contains information about the contract, your investment options, the Sub-Accounts and expenses related to purchasing a variable annuity contract or variable life policy.
Annuities are not bank products and are neither the obligations of, nor are they guaranteed by, the financial institution where they are offered. They are not insured by the FDIC, NCUSIF or any other federal entity and are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal and interest. Payment of benefits under the annuity contract is the obligation of, and is guaranteed by, the insurance company issuing the annuity. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the insurer.
