AGE

The Age of a person is the attained age as of a person’s last birthday. Unless otherwise defined in an endorsement or rider to this Contract, in the case of Joint Owners/Annuitants, the age of the older person will be used to determine any age-driven benefit.

This Contract cannot have Joint Annuitants if it is issued in connection with a tax-qualified retirement plan.

ANNUITIZATION

Annuitization is a series of periodic Annuity Income Payments. If You select Variable Annuitization, these periodic Annuity Income Payments vary in amount according to investment experience of one or more Variable Portfolios, as selected by You and such payments are made from the Company’s Separate Account. If You select Fixed Annuitization, these periodic Annuity Income Payments do not vary with investment experience and such payments are made from the Company’s general asset account.

The Annuity Date is the date on which Annuity Income Payments to the Payee begin. This date cannot be later than the Latest Annuity Date.

ANNUITY SERVICE CENTER

The Annuity Service Center is the address shown on Page 1 of this Contract where all Purchase Payments and requests regarding this Contract are to be sent.

PURCHASE PAYMENT PROVISIONS

PURCHASE PAYMENTS

Purchase Payments are flexible. This means that, subject to Company disclosed restrictions, You may change the amounts, frequency and/or timing of Purchase Payments. Purchase Payments can be made at any time after the Contract Date, but must be received at Our Annuity Service Center before the Purchase Payment Age Limit, as shown on the Contract Data Page. With instructions from You, Purchase Payments will be allocated to the Variable Portfolio(s) and/or Fixed Account Option(s), if available. We reserve the right, upon advance notice to You, to: 1) limit the maximum amount of Purchase Payments; and 2) discontinue acceptance of any subsequent Purchase Payment(s).

DOLLAR COST AVERAGING (DCA) FIXED ACCOUNT OPTION(S)

Any portion of a Purchase Payment allocated to a DCA Fixed Account Option(s), if available, must be transferred out to the Variable Portfolio(s) within the specified DCA Fixed Account Option period. Upon termination of the DCA program, any amounts remaining in the DCA Fixed Account Option(s) will be transferred to the DCA target allocation(s) for the program being terminated. We reserve the right to impose a minimum or maximum contribution level on Purchase Payments allocated to a DCA Fixed Account Option(s) and/or change the terms and conditions of the DCA program at any time. We reserve the right to cease offering DCA Fixed Account Option(s).

CHANGES TO VARIABLE PORTFOLIO OFFERINGS

If the shares of an Underlying Fund should no longer be available for investment by the Separate Account, then We may substitute shares of another Underlying Fund, for shares already purchased, or to be purchased in the future. At any given time, some Variable Portfolios may not be available for receipt of Purchase Payment(s) or transfer(s). Substitutions may be necessary and will be carried out in accordance with any applicable state and/or federal laws or regulations.

MINIMUM CONTRACT VALUE

If Your Contract Value falls below the Minimum Amount Remaining After Any Partial Withdrawal, as shown on the Contract Data Page, as a result of taking partial Withdrawals, subject to applicable state and federal laws, rules and regulations, We may treat Your partial Withdrawal request as a request for a total Withdrawal and terminate Your Contract.

ACCUMULATION PROVISIONS

Your Contract provides for an accumulation phase and an income phase. During the accumulation phase, Your Purchase Payment(s) received prior to the Annuity Date are allocated among any available Fixed Account Options(s) and/or one or more of the Variable Portfolio(s) in Your Contract. During the income phase, payments under an Annuity Payment Option selected by You are made to You or Your designated Payee.

SEPARATE ACCOUNT ACCUMULATION VALUE

The Separate Account Accumulation Value under the Contract is the sum of the Accumulation Unit Values held in the Variable Portfolios for You.

NUMBER OF ACCUMULATION UNITS

Your Contract is credited with Accumulation Units of the Separate Account when amounts are allocated to the Variable Portfolio(s). For that portion of each Purchase Payment and/or transfer amount allocated to a Variable Portfolio, the number of Accumulation Units credited is equal to:

The sum of each Purchase Payment and/or transfer amount allocated to the Variable Portfolio reduced by any applicable premium taxes:

Divided by

 

AG-803 (7/13)    8   


Table of Contents

The Accumulation Unit Value for that Variable Portfolio for the Business Day in which the Purchase Payment or transfer amount is allocated to the Variable Portfolio.

The number of Accumulation Units will be reduced for Withdrawals, Annuitization, amounts transferred out of a Variable Portfolio, the Contract Maintenance Fee, if applicable, and applicable charges for any elected features as set forth in endorsements or riders to this Contract. Any reduction to the Contract Value will be made as of the Business Day in which We receive all requirements In Writing for the transaction, as appropriate.

ACCUMULATION UNIT VALUE (AUV)

The AUV of a Variable Portfolio for any Business Day is determined as follows:

 

  1.

We calculate the Net Investment Rate by dividing (a) by (b) minus (c) where:

 

  (a)

is the Variable Portfolio’s income and capital gains and losses (whether realized or unrealized) on the current Business Day;

 

  (b)

is the value of the Variable Portfolio for the immediately preceding Business Day; and

 

  (c)

is the daily Separate Account charge.

 

  2.

We calculate the AUV by multiplying (d) by [1+(e)] where:

 

  (d)

is the AUV of the immediately preceding Business Day; and

 

  (e)

is the Net Investment Rate of the current Business Day.

FIXED ACCOUNT ACCUMULATION VALUE

The Fixed Account Accumulation Value, if any, is the sum of all amounts allocated or transferred to the Fixed Account Option(s), if available, reduced by any applicable premium taxes, plus all interest credited to the Fixed Account Option(s) during the period that You have Contract Value allocated to the Fixed Account Option(s). This amount will be adjusted for Withdrawals, Annuitization, transfers, the Contract Maintenance Fee, if applicable and allowed by Your state, and applicable charges for any elected features as set forth in endorsements/riders to this Contract. The Fixed Account Accumulation Value will not be less than the minimum values required by law in the state where this Contract is issued.

FIXED ACCOUNT GUARANTEE PERIOD OPTIONS AND INTEREST CREDITING

The portion of Your Contract Value within the Fixed Account Option(s), if available, is credited with interest at rates guaranteed by Us for the Guarantee Period(s) selected. Interest is credited on a daily basis at the then applicable effective interest rate for the applicable Guarantee Period. You may select from one or more Guarantee Periods which We may offer at any particular time. We reserve the right at any time to add or discontinue Guarantee Periods. If You have allocated any part of Your Initial Purchase Payment to a Guarantee Period, the percentage allocated, as well as the duration of the Guarantee Period, is shown on the Application or administrative election form as completed by You.

The interest rate applicable to the allocation of a Purchase Payment or transfer of Contract Value to a Fixed Account Option is the rate in effect for the applicable Guarantee Period at the time of the allocation or transfer. If You have allocated or transferred amounts at different times to any available Fixed Account Option(s), each allocation or transfer may have a unique effective interest rate associated with that amount. We guarantee that the effective annual rate of interest for any available Fixed Account Option(s), including any of the available Guarantee Periods, will not be less than the Minimum Guaranteed Rate as mandated by Your state, and shown on the Contract Data Page.

CHARGES AND DEDUCTIONS

We will deduct the following charges from the Contract:

CONTRACT MAINTENANCE FEE

The charge, as shown on the Contract Data Page, if applicable, will be deducted on each Contract Anniversary on or prior to the Annuity Date. It will also be deducted when the Contract Value is withdrawn in full if the Withdrawal is not on the Contract Anniversary.

WITHDRAWAL CHARGE

The charge, as shown on the Contract Data Page, if any, may be deducted upon Withdrawal of any portion of the Contract Value that is not considered a Penalty-Free Withdrawal. See WITHDRAWAL PROVISIONS below.

SEPARATE ACCOUNT CHARGE

This charge, as shown on the Contract Data Page, on an annualized basis equals a percentage of the average daily ending value of the assets attributable to the Accumulation Units of the Variable Portfolio(s) to which all or part of the Contract Value is allocated. This charge compensates Us for the mortality and expense risk and the costs of contract distribution assumed by Us. We subtract this charge daily from the Separate Account.

TRANSFER FEE

We permit 15 free transfers between Variable Portfolios and/or available Fixed Account Option(s) each Contract Year. We may charge You a fee, as shown on the Contract Data Page, for each additional transfer in that Contract Year, except for transfers made as part of an automated transfer program.

TRANSFER PROVISIONS

Subject to applicable restrictions, You may transfer all or part of Your Contract Value amongst the Variable Portfolios and/or available Fixed Account Option(s) (unless otherwise noted). The minimum amount that can be transferred is subject to the Minimum Transfer Amount, as shown on the Contract Data Page. The amount that can remain in a Variable Portfolio and/or available Fixed Account Option is subject to Company limits. We reserve the right to restrict Your transfer privileges, including but not limited to possible termination of those privileges.

Due to the risks that frequent transfers impose upon Owners and other investors in the Variable Portfolio(s) and/or Underlying Funds, We or the manager of an Underlying Fund may limit transfer activity and impose other requirements to minimize these risks, including but not limited to, requiring a minimum amount that can be transferred, and an amount that can remain in a Variable Portfolio and/or available Fixed Account Option after a transfer.

TRANSFERS BEFORE THE ANNUITY DATE

Before the Annuity Date, transfers are subject to certain restrictions. You may transfer all or a portion of Your Contract Value from one Variable Portfolio to another Variable Portfolio(s) or any available Fixed Account Option(s) other than the DCA Fixed Account Option(s). You may also transfer all or a portion of Your Contract Value from any available Fixed Account Option(s) to the Variable Portfolio(s) and/or any available Fixed Account Option(s) other than the DCA Fixed Account Options of the Contract. A transfer to a Variable Portfolio will result in the redemption of Accumulation Units in a Variable Portfolio and the purchase of Accumulation Units in the other Variable Portfolio. Transfers will be effective at the end of the Business Day on which We receive Your completed Written transfer request.

Unless You instruct Us to make a transfer, Your allocation to any available Fixed Account Option(s) and Variable Portfolio(s) will remain unchanged, subject to the terms of the Contract. We reserve the right to terminate Your ability to transfer to any discontinued Fixed Account Option(s) and/or Variable Portfolio(s). A written notification will be provided to You at Your last known address prior to any such termination of Your ability to transfer.

 

AG-803 (7/13)    10   


Table of Contents

TRANSFERS AFTER THE ANNUITY DATE

On and after the Annuity Date, transfers into and out of any available Fixed Account Option(s) are not allowed. You may transfer all or a portion of Your Annuity Units from one Variable Portfolio to another Variable Portfolio(s). A transfer will result in the redemption of Annuity Units in a Variable Portfolio and the purchase of Annuity Units in the other Variable Portfolio. Transfers will be effective on the last Business Day of the month on which We receive Your Written request for the transfer.

Unless You instruct Us to make a transfer, Your allocation to the Variable Portfolio(s) will remain unchanged, subject to the terms of the Contract. We reserve the right to terminate Your ability to transfer to any discontinued Variable Portfolio(s). A written notification will be provided to You at Your last known address prior to any such termination of Your ability to transfer.

WITHDRAWAL PROVISIONS

On or before the Annuity Date and while You are living, You may withdraw all (“total Withdrawal”) or part of Your Contract Value under this Contract by informing Us In Writing. The Minimum Partial Withdrawal Amount is shown on the Contract Data Page.

Unless You tell Us otherwise In Writing, Withdrawals will be deducted from the Contract Value in proportion to their allocation among any available Fixed Account Option(s) and the Variable Portfolio(s). Withdrawals will be based on values for the Business Day on which the Written request for Withdrawal is received by Us. In the case of a total Withdrawal, the Withdrawal will be based on values for the Business Day on which the Written request for Withdrawal is received by Us. Payment of the total Withdrawal will terminate this Contract and We will have no further obligations under the Contract. Unless the SUSPENSION OF PAYMENTS or DEFERMENT OF PAYMENTS provisions are in effect, payment of Withdrawals will be made within seven calendar days.

WITHDRAWAL CHARGE

Withdrawals of all or a portion of the Contract Value may be subject to a Withdrawal Charge, as shown on the Contract Data Page. The Withdrawal Charge percentage applied to any Withdrawal will depend on how long the Purchase Payment to which the Withdrawal is attributed has been in the Contract. No Withdrawal Charge is deducted on an amount which is considered a Penalty-Free Withdrawal or a Purchase Payment no longer subject to a Withdrawal Charge.

For the purpose of determining the Withdrawal Charge applicable to a partial Withdrawal, the Withdrawal will be attributed to amounts in the following order: (1) any remaining Penalty-Free Withdrawal amount (except in the case of a total Withdrawal); (2) Purchase Payments not yet withdrawn and no longer subject to Withdrawal Charges; (3) Purchase Payments not yet withdrawn and still subject to Withdrawal Charges; and (4) any remaining Contract Value. A Purchase Payment, or portion thereof, is considered withdrawn when the Withdrawal incurs a Withdrawal Charge, and is assumed to be withdrawn on a first-in-first-out (FIFO) basis. The Withdrawal Charge will be assessed against the Variable Portfolio(s) and the available Fixed Account Option(s) in the same proportion that the remaining Contract Value is allocated unless You request that the Withdrawal come from a particular Variable Portfolio or available Fixed Account Option.

PENALTY-FREE WITHDRAWALS

On any day in a Contract Year before the Annuity Date, You may make a partial Withdrawal of up to the Penalty-Free Withdrawal amount as of that day without incurring a Withdrawal Charge. The Maximum Penalty-Free Withdrawal Percentage is shown on the Contract Data Page.

Each Contract Year, the Penalty-Free Withdrawal amount is calculated as the Maximum Penalty-Free Withdrawal Percentage multiplied by the remaining Purchase Payments not yet withdrawn and still subject to Withdrawal Charges.

Although amounts withdrawn as Penalty-Free Withdrawals reduce the Contract Value, they do not reduce the remaining Purchase Payments for purposes of calculating future Penalty-Free Withdrawal amounts and Withdrawal Charges. Partial Withdrawals in a Contract Year that are in excess of the Penalty-Free Withdrawal amount incur a

 

AG-803 (7/13)    11   


Table of Contents

Withdrawal Charge applicable to the remaining Purchase Payments and reduce those Purchase Payments on a first-in-first-out (FIFO) basis.

If You choose to take less than the Penalty-Free Withdrawal amount during a Contract Year, You may not carry over the unused Penalty-Free Withdrawal amount in any subsequent Contract Years. If Your Contract Value is subject to Withdrawal Charges, a Penalty-Free Withdrawal is not available to You if You take a total Withdrawal.

SYSTEMATIC WITHDRAWAL PROGRAM

Prior to the Annuity Date, You may elect to participate in a Systematic Withdrawal Program by informing Us at Our Annuity Service Center. The Systematic Withdrawal Program allows You to make automatic Withdrawals from Your Contract monthly, quarterly, semiannually or annually. The Minimum Systematic Withdrawal Amount is shown on the Contract Data Page. Any amount withdrawn through the Systematic Withdrawal Program may be subject to a Withdrawal Charge as discussed in the WITHDRAWAL CHARGE and PENALTY-FREE WITHDRAWALS provisions. You may terminate Your participation in the Systematic Withdrawal Program at any time by sending Us a Written request.

DEATH PROVISIONS

Notwithstanding any provision of this Contract to the contrary, all payments of Death Benefits under this Contract will be made in a manner that satisfies the requirements of IRC Section 72(s), as amended from time to time. If the Contract is owned by a trust or other non-natural person, We will treat the death of any Annuitant as the death of the “Primary Annuitant” and as the death of any Owner.

DUE PROOF OF DEATH

Due Proof of Death means any Written proof, which may include but is not limited to:

 

  1.

a certified copy of a death certificate; or

  2.

a certified copy of a decree of a court of competent jurisdiction as to the finding of death; or

  3.

a written statement by a medical doctor who attended the deceased Owner at the time of death.

DEATH OF OWNER BEFORE THE ANNUITY DATE

Upon Your death, We will pay a Death Benefit to the Beneficiary upon Our receiving all Required Documentation. Unless You have previously designated a payment option on behalf of the Beneficiary, the Beneficiary must select one of the following options:

 

  1.

Immediately collect the Death Benefit in a lump sum payment. If a lump sum payment is elected, payment will be in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations governing payments on death; or

 

  2.

Collect the Death Benefit in the form of one of the Annuity Income Payment Options. If an Annuity Income Payment Option is desired, an option must be elected within 60 days of Our receipt of all Required Documentation. The Annuity Income Payments must be over the life of the Beneficiary or over a period not extending beyond the life expectancy of the Beneficiary. Consistent with applicable tax rules, payments under this option generally must begin within one year after the Owner’s death, otherwise, the Death Benefit will be paid in accordance with option 1 above; or

 

  3.

If eligible and You are the Spousal Beneficiary, You may continue the Contract (“Continuing Spouse”). If this option is elected, no Death Benefit is paid out to the Continuing Spouse on the Continuation Date; or

 

  4.

A payment option that is mutually agreeable between You and Us.

 

AG-803 (7/13)    12   


Table of Contents

The entire interest in the Contract will be distributed within the five year period specified under applicable laws and regulations, commencing with the date of death of the Owner unless option 2, 3 or 4 was selected under DEATH OF OWNER BEFORE THE ANNUITY DATE.

Upon the Continuing Spouse’s death, the entire interest of the Contract must be distributed immediately under option 1, 2 or 4 as provided under DEATH OF OWNER BEFORE THE ANNUITY DATE.

AMOUNT OF DEATH BENEFIT

The amount of the Death Benefit is the Contract Value on the Business Day during which We receive all Required Documentation.

SPOUSAL BENEFICIARY CONTINUATION

If the Spousal Beneficiary continues the Contract on the Continuation Date (“Continuing Spouse”), the amount continued is the Death Benefit, which is the Contract Value on the Business Day during which We receive all Required Documentation.

DEATH OF OWNER OR ANNUITANT ON OR AFTER THE ANNUITY DATE

If any Owner or Annuitant dies on or after the Annuity Date and before the entire interest in the Contract has been distributed, We will continue to make payments of any remaining portion of the Annuity Income Payment(s) to the Beneficiary under the existing Annuity Income Payments, if a specified term was elected, upon Our receipt of all Required Documentation. For further information pertaining to death of the Annuitant, see ANNUITY INCOME PAYMENT OPTIONS.

BENEFICIARY

The Beneficiary is selected by the Owner. While the Owner is living and before the Annuity Date, the Owner may change the Beneficiary by Written notice. A change in Beneficiary will take effect on the date We receive the Written notice. If two or more persons are named as Beneficiaries under the Contract, those surviving the Owner will share equally unless otherwise specified by the Owner and each must elect to receive their respective portions of the Death Benefit according to the options listed under DEATH OF OWNER BEFORE THE ANNUITY DATE. Joint Owners, if applicable, shall be each other’s primary Beneficiary. Any other Beneficiary designation will be treated as a contingent Beneficiary.

If the Annuitant survives the Owner, and there are no surviving Beneficiaries, the Annuitant will be deemed the Beneficiary. Joint Annuitants, if any, when the Owner is a trust or other non-natural person, shall be each other’s primary Beneficiary. Any other Beneficiary designation will be treated as a contingent Beneficiary.

If the Owner is also the Annuitant and there are no surviving Beneficiaries, upon Our receipt of all Required Documentation, We will pay the Death Benefit to the estate of the Owner in accordance with option 1, under DEATH OF OWNER BEFORE THE ANNUITY DATE.

ANNUITY PROVISIONS

Any such request is subject to the rights of any assignee. No Annuity Income Payments available to or being paid to the Payee while the Annuitant is alive can be transferred, commuted, anticipated or encumbered.

FIXED ANNUITIZATION

If a Fixed Annuitization has been elected, the proceeds payable under this Contract less any applicable premium taxes, shall be applied to the payment of the fixed Annuity Income Payment option elected at rates which are at least equal to the annuity rates based upon the applicable tables in the Contract. Upon Annuitization, any amounts remaining in the DCA Fixed Account Option(s), if applicable, will be applied to a Fixed Annuitization. The unit values credited and applied to Your Contract are determined on each date of transfer.

AMOUNT OF FIXED ANNUITY INCOME PAYMENTS

The amount of each fixed Annuity Income Payment will be determined by applying the portion of the Contract Value allocated by You for Fixed Annuitization on the Annuity Date, less any applicable premium taxes, to the annuity factor applicable to the fixed Annuity Income Payment option chosen. In no event will the Fixed Annuitization be changed once it begins.

AMOUNT OF VARIABLE ANNUITY INCOME PAYMENTS

(a)

FIRST VARIABLE ANNUITY INCOME PAYMENT: The dollar amount of the first Variable Annuitization payment will be determined by applying the portion of the Contract Value allocated to the Variable Portfolio(s) on the Annuity Date, less any applicable premium taxes, to the annuity factor applicable to the variable Annuity Income Payment option chosen. If the Contract Value is allocated to more than one Variable Portfolio, the value of Your allocation in each Variable Portfolio is applied separately to the variable Annuity Income Payment option factor to determine the amount of the first Annuity Income Payment attributable to each Variable Portfolio.

 

(b)

NUMBER OF VARIABLE ANNUITY UNITS: The number of Annuity Units for each applicable Variable Portfolio is the amount of the first Annuity Income Payment attributable to that Variable Portfolio divided by the value of the applicable Annuity Unit for that Variable Portfolio as of the Annuity Date. The number of Annuity Units will not change as a result of investment experience.

 

(c)

VALUE OF EACH VARIABLE ANNUITY UNIT: The value of an Annuity Unit may increase or decrease from one month to the next. For any month, the value of an Annuity Unit of a particular Variable Portfolio is the value of that Annuity Unit as of the last Business Day of the preceding month, multiplied by the Net Investment Factor for that Variable Portfolio for the last Business Day of the current month.

The Net Investment Factor for any Variable Portfolio for a certain month is determined by dividing (1) by (2) and multiplying by (3) where:

 

  (1)

is the Accumulation Unit Value of the Variable Portfolio determined as of the last Business Day at the end of that month; and

 

  (2)

is the Accumulation Unit Value of the Variable Portfolio determined as of the last Business Day at the end of the preceding month; and

 

  (3)

is a monthly discount factor of an assumed annualized investment rate of 3.50%.

 

(d)

SUBSEQUENT VARIABLE ANNUITY INCOME PAYMENTS: After the first Variable Annuitization payment, subsequent Variable Annuitization payments will vary in amount according to the investment performance of the applicable Variable Portfolio(s) in which You are invested. The amount may change from month to month. The amount of each subsequent payment for each Variable Portfolio is (1) multiplied by (2) where:

 

  (1)

is the number of Annuity Units for each Variable Portfolio as determined for the first Annuity Income Payment; and

 

AG-803 (7/13)    14   


Table of Contents
  (2)

is the value of an Annuity Unit for that Variable Portfolio determined as of the last Business Day at the end of the month immediately preceding the month in which the Annuity Income Payment is due.

We guarantee that the amount of each Variable Annuitization payments will not be affected by variations in expenses or mortality experience.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

ENTIRE CONTRACT

The Entire Contract between You and Us consists of this Contract, the Application for this Contract, and any attached endorsement(s) and/or rider(s). An agent cannot change the terms or conditions of this Contract. Any change must be In Writing and approved by Us. Only Our President, Secretary, or one of Our Vice-Presidents can give Our approval. All statements made by the applicant for the issuance of the Contract shall, in the absence of fraud, be deemed representations and not warranties.

CHANGE OF ANNUITANT

If the Owner is an individual, the Owner may change the Annuitant(s) at any time prior to the Annuity Date, subject to Our approval. To request such a change, the Owner must send a request In Writing at least thirty (30) days before the Annuity Date. If the Owner is a trust or other non-natural person, the Owner may not change the Annuitant. Any change of the Annuitant may have income tax consequences.

DEATH OF ANNUITANT

If the Owner is an individual, the Owner and Annuitant are different persons, and the Annuitant dies before the Annuity Date, the Owner becomes the Annuitant until the Owner elects a new Annuitant. If there are Joint Annuitants, upon the death of any Annuitant prior to the Annuity Date, the Owner may elect a new Joint Annuitant, subject to Our approval. However, if the Owner is a trust or other non-natural person, We will treat the death of any Annuitant as the death of the “Primary Annuitant” as defined in the IRC, and as the death of the Owner, as explained in the DEATH PROVISIONS.

MISSTATEMENT OF AGE OR SEX

You must, upon Our request, provide proof of the Annuitant’s birth date and sex. If the Age or sex of any Annuitant is misstated, We will adjust future Annuity Income Payments. The amount remaining to be paid will be the amount that should have been paid with the correct information. We will credit or charge the amount of any underpayment or overpayment against the next succeeding Annuity Income Payment(s), if any remain. We reserve the right to collect any overpayment directly from the Payee.

With respect to Contract issue Age and other age driven features in the Contract, should We discover a misstatement of Age such that You would not otherwise qualify for an Age-driven benefit, We may fully pursue Our remedies including possible revocation of any Age-driven benefits. A written notification will be provided to the Owner at least ten (10) days prior to the revocation of the Contract.

PROOF OF AGE, SEX, OR SURVIVAL

We may require satisfactory proof of correct Age or sex at any time. If any payment under this Contract depends on the Annuitant being alive, We may require satisfactory proof of survival.

DEFERMENT OF PAYMENTS

We may defer making payments, subject to Your state regulatory approval from the available Fixed Account Option(s) for up to six (6) months. Interest, subject to state requirements, will be credited during the deferral period.

an emergency exists such that it is not reasonably practical to dispose of securities in the Variable Portfolios or to determine the value of its assets;

CONFORMITY WITH STATE LAWS

The provisions of this Contract will be interpreted by the laws of the state in which the Application was signed or such other state as is required by law. Any provision which, on the Contract Date, is in conflict with the law of such state is amended to conform to the minimum requirements of such law.

CHANGES IN LAW

If the laws governing this Contract or the taxation of benefits under the Contract change, We reserve the right to amend this Contract to comply with these changes.

ASSIGNMENT / CHANGE OF OWNER

Unless restricted by federal tax law, this Contract can be assigned before the Annuity Date, but We will not be bound by an assignment or change of Owner unless the request for assignment is In Writing and is recorded. Your rights and those of any other person referred to in this Contract will be subject to the assignment. Certain assignments may be taxable. We do not assume any responsibility for the validity or tax consequences of any assignment. The assignment, unless otherwise specified by You, will take effect on the date that You signed the notice of assignment, subject to any payments made or actions taken by Us prior to Us receiving such assignment In Writing. We reserve the right to not recognize assignments or change of Owner if it changes the risk profile of the Owner of the Contract as determined in Our sole discretion.

INSURABLE INTEREST

Evidence must exist that the Owner(s), Annuitant(s) or Beneficiary(ies) will suffer a financial loss at the death of the life that triggers the Death Benefit. Generally, We consider an interest insurable if a familial relationship and/or economic interest exists. A familial relationship generally includes those persons related by blood or by law. An economic interest exists when the Owner has a lawful and substantial economic interest in having the life, health or bodily safety of the insured life preserved.

CLAIMS OF CREDITORS

To the extent permitted by law, no right or proceeds payable under this Contract will be subject to claims of creditors or legal process.

PREMIUM TAXES OR OTHER TAXES

We may deduct from Your Contract Value any premium tax or other taxes payable to a state or other government entity, if applicable.
