Payments of principal, premium, if any, and interest hereon will be made in the lawful currency of the United States of America (“U.S. Dollars” or “United States dollars”). The “Principal Amount” of this Note at any time means (1) if this Note is a Discount Note (as hereinafter defined), the Amortized Face Amount (as hereinafter defined) at such time (as defined in Section 3(c) on the reverse hereof) and (2) in all other cases, the Principal Amount hereof.

Supplement (the “Indenture”), between Citibank, N.A., as the indenture trustee (the “Indenture Trustee”), and the Trust, or on the face hereof.
     This Note will mature on the Stated Maturity Date, unless its principal (or any installment of its principal) becomes due and payable prior to the Stated Maturity Date, whether, as applicable, by the declaration of acceleration of maturity, notice of redemption by the Trust or otherwise (the Stated Maturity Date or any date prior to the Stated Maturity Date on which this Note becomes due and payable, as the case may be, is referred to as the “Maturity Date”).
     A “Discount Note” is any Note that has an Issue Price that is less than 100% of the Principal Amount thereof by a percentage that is equal to or greater than 0.25% multiplied by the product of the principal amount of the Notes and the number of full years to the Stated Maturity Date.
     Unless otherwise specified above, the interest payable on each Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date will be the amount of interest accrued from and including the Original Issue Date or from and including the last Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, as the case may be, to, but excluding, such Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date, as the case may be.
     Unless otherwise specified above, the interest payable on any Interest Payment Date will be paid to the Holder on the Regular Record Date for such Interest Payment Date, which Regular Record Date shall be the fifteenth (15th) calendar day, whether or not a Business Day, immediately preceding the related Interest Payment Date; provided that, notwithstanding any provision of the Indenture to the contrary, interest payable on any Maturity Date shall be payable to the Person to whom principal shall be payable; and provided, further, that unless otherwise specified above, in the case of a Note initially issued between a Regular Record Date and the Interest Payment Date relating to such Regular Record Date, interest for the period beginning on the Original Issue Date and ending on such Interest Payment Date shall be paid on the Interest Payment Date following the next succeeding Regular Record Date to the Holder on such next succeeding Regular Record Date.
     Payments of principal of, and premium, if any, and interest and other amounts due and owing, if any, will be made through the Indenture Trustee to the account of DTC or its nominee and will be made in accordance with depositary arrangements with DTC.
     Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Holder hereof will not be obligated to pay any administrative costs imposed by banks in making payments in immediately available funds by the Trust. Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, any tax assessment or governmental charge imposed upon payments hereunder, including, without limitation, any withholding tax, will be borne by the Holder hereof.

  (b)   Floating Rate Notes. If this Note is specified on the face hereof as a “Floating Rate Note”:
(i) Interest Rate Basis. Interest on this Note will be determined by reference to the applicable Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases, which may, as described

5


 

below, include the CD Rate, the CMT Rate, the Commercial Paper Rate, the Constant Maturity Swap Rate, the Federal Funds Open Rate, the Federal Funds Rate, LIBOR, the Prime Rate or the Treasury Rate (each as defined below).
(ii) Effective Rate. The rate derived from the applicable Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases will be determined in accordance with the related provisions below. The interest rate in effect on each day will be based on: (1) if that day is an Interest Reset Date, the rate determined as of the Interest Determination Date immediately preceding that Interest Reset Date; or (2) if that day is not an Interest Reset Date, the rate determined as of the Interest Determination Date immediately preceding the most recent Interest Reset Date.
(iii) Spread; Spread Multiplier; Index Maturity. The “Spread” is the number of basis points (one one-hundredth of a percentage point) specified on the face hereof to be added to or subtracted from the related Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases applicable to this Note. The “Spread Multiplier” is the percentage specified on the face hereof of the related Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases applicable to this Note by which the Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases will be multiplied to determine the applicable interest rate. The “Index Maturity” is the period to maturity of the instrument or obligation with respect to which the related Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases will be calculated.
(iv) Regular Floating Rate Note. Unless this Note is specified on the face hereof as a Floating Rate/Fixed Rate Note, this Note (a “Regular Floating Rate Note”) will bear interest at the rate determined by reference to the applicable Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases: (1) plus or minus the applicable Spread, if any; and/or (2) multiplied by the applicable Spread Multiplier, if any. Commencing on the first Interest Reset Date, the rate at which interest on this Regular Floating Rate Note is payable will be reset as of each Interest Reset Date; provided, however, that the interest rate in effect for the period, if any, from the Original Issue Date to the first Interest Reset Date will be the Initial Interest Rate.
(v) Floating Rate/Fixed Rate Notes. If this Note is specified on the face hereof as a “Floating Rate/Fixed Rate Note”, this Note will bear interest at the rate determined by reference to the applicable Interest Rate Basis or Interest Rate Bases: (1) plus or minus the applicable Spread, if any; and/or (2) multiplied by the applicable Spread Multiplier, if any. Commencing on the first Interest Reset Date, the rate at which this Floating Rate/Fixed Rate Note is payable will be reset as of each Interest Reset Date; provided, however, that: (A) the interest rate in effect for the period, if any, from the Original Issue Date to the first Interest Reset Date will be the Initial Interest Rate specified on the face hereof; and (B) the interest rate in effect commencing on the Fixed Rate Commencement Date will be the Fixed Interest Rate, if specified on the face hereof, or, if not so specified, the interest rate in effect on the day immediately preceding the Fixed Rate Commencement Date.
(vi) Interest Reset Dates. The period between Interest Reset Dates will be the “Interest Reset Period.” Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Interest

6


 

Reset Dates will be, in the case of this Floating Rate Note if by its terms it resets: (1) daily—each business day; (2) weekly—the Wednesday of each week, with the exception of any weekly reset Floating Rate Note as to which the Treasury Rate is an applicable Interest Rate Basis, which will reset the Tuesday of each week; (3) monthly—the fifteenth day of each calendar month; (4) quarterly—the fifteenth day of March, June, September and December of each year; (5) semi-annually—the fifteenth day of the two months of each year specified on the face hereof; and (6) annually—the fifteenth day of the month of each year specified on the face hereof; provided, however, that, with respect to a Floating Rate/Fixed Rate Note, the rate of interest thereon will not reset after the particular Fixed Rate Commencement Date. If any Interest Reset Date for this Floating Rate Note would otherwise be a day that is not a Business Day, the particular Interest Reset Date will be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day, except that in the case of a Floating Rate Note as to which LIBOR is an applicable Interest Rate Basis and that Business Day falls in the next succeeding calendar month, the particular Interest Reset Date will be the immediately preceding Business Day.
(vii) Interest Determination Dates. The interest rate applicable to a Floating Rate Note for an Interest Reset Period commencing on the related Interest Reset Date will be determined by reference to the applicable Interest Rate Basis as of the particular “Interest Determination Date”, which will be: (1) with respect to the Federal Funds Open Rate—the related Interest Reset Date; (2) with respect to the Commercial Paper Rate, the Federal Funds Rate and the Prime Rate—the Business Day immediately preceding the related Interest Reset Date; (3) with respect to the CD Rate and the CMT Rate—the second Business Day preceding the related Interest Reset Date; (4) with respect to the Constant Maturity Swap Rate—the second U.S. Government Securities business day preceding the related Interest Reset Date, provided, however, that if after attempting to determine the Constant Maturity Swap Rate, such rate is not determinable for a particular Interest Determination Date, then such Interest Determination Date shall be the first U.S. Government Securities business day preceding the original interest determination date for which the Constant Maturity Swap Rate can be determined; (5) with respect to LIBOR—the second London Banking Day (as defined below) preceding the related Interest Reset Date; and (6) with respect to the Treasury Rate—the day of the week in which the related Interest Reset Date falls on which day Treasury Bills (as defined below) are normally auctioned (i.e., Treasury Bills are normally sold at auction on Monday of each week, unless that day is a legal holiday, in which case the auction is normally held on the following Tuesday, except that the auction may be held on the preceding Friday); provided, however, that if an auction is held on the Friday of the week preceding the related Interest Reset Date, the Interest Determination Date will be the preceding Friday. The Interest Determination Date pertaining to a Floating Rate Note, the interest rate of which is determined with reference to two or more Interest Rate Bases, will be the latest Business Day which is at least two Business Days before the related Interest Reset Date for the applicable Floating Rate Note on which each Interest Reset Basis is determinable. “London Banking Day” means a day on which commercial banks are open for business (including dealings in the LIBOR Currency) in London.

7


 

(viii) Calculation Dates. The interest rate applicable to each Interest Reset Period will be determined by the Calculation Agent on or prior to the Calculation Date (as defined below), except with respect to LIBOR, which will be determined on the particular Interest Determination Date. Upon request of the Holder of a Floating Rate Note, the Calculation Agent will disclose the interest rate then in effect and, if determined, the interest rate that will become effective as a result of a determination made for the next succeeding Interest Reset Date with respect to such Floating Rate Note. The “Calculation Date”, if applicable, pertaining to any Interest Determination Date will be the earlier of: (1) the tenth calendar day after the particular Interest Determination Date or, if such day is not a Business Day, the next succeeding Business Day; or (2) the Business Day immediately preceding the applicable Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date, as the case may be.
(ix) Maximum or Minimum Interest Rate. If specified on the face hereof, this Note may have either or both of a Maximum Interest Rate or a Minimum Interest Rate. If a Maximum Interest Rate is so designated, the interest rate for a Floating Rate Note cannot ever exceed such Maximum Interest Rate and in the event that the interest rate on any Interest Reset Date would exceed such Maximum Interest Rate (as if no Maximum Interest Rate were in effect) then the interest rate on such Interest Reset Date shall be the Maximum Interest Rate. If a Minimum Interest Rate is so designated, the interest rate for a Floating Rate Note cannot ever be less than such Minimum Interest Rate and in the event that the interest rate on any Interest Reset Date would be less than such Minimum Interest Rate (as if no Minimum Interest Rate were in effect) then the interest rate on such Interest Reset Date shall be the Minimum Interest Rate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the interest rate on a Floating Rate Note shall not exceed the maximum interest rate permitted by applicable law.
(x) Interest Payments. Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Interest Payment Dates will be, in the case of a Floating Rate Note which resets: (1) daily, weekly or monthly—the fifteenth day of each calendar month or on the fifteenth day of March, June, September and December of each year, as specified on the face hereof; (2) quarterly—the fifteenth day of March, June, September and December of each year; (3) semi-annually—the fifteenth day of the two months of each year specified on the face hereof; and (4) annually—the fifteenth day of the month of each year as specified on the face hereof. In addition, the Maturity Date will also be an Interest Payment Date. If any Interest Payment Date other than the Maturity Date for this Floating Rate Note would otherwise be a day that is not a Business Day, such Interest Payment Date will be postponed to the next succeeding Business Day, except that in the case of a Floating Rate Note as to which LIBOR is an applicable Interest Rate Basis and that Business Day falls in the next succeeding calendar month, the particular Interest Payment Date will be the immediately preceding Business Day. If the Maturity Date of a Floating Rate Note falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the Trust will make the required payment of principal, premium, if any, and interest or other amounts on the next succeeding Business Day, and no additional interest will accrue in respect of the payment made on that next succeeding Business Day.

(xi) Rounding. Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, all percentages resulting from any calculation on this Floating Rate Note will be rounded to the nearest one hundred-thousandth of a percentage point, with five one-millionths of a percentage point rounded upwards. All dollar amounts used in or resulting from any calculation on this Floating Rate Note will be rounded to the nearest cent.
(xii) Interest Factor. With respect to this Floating Rate Note, accrued interest is calculated by multiplying the principal amount of such Note by an accrued interest factor. The accrued interest factor is computed by adding the interest factor calculated for each day in the particular Interest Reset Period. The interest factor for each day will be computed by dividing the interest rate applicable to such day by 360, in the case of a Floating Rate Note as to which the CD Rate, the Commercial Paper Rate, the Federal Funds Open Rate, the Federal Funds Rate, LIBOR or the Prime Rate is an applicable Interest Rate Basis, or by the actual number of days in the year, in the case of a Floating Rate Note as to which the CMT Rate or the Treasury Rate is an applicable Interest Rate Basis. In the case of a series of Notes that bear interest at floating rates as to which the Constant Maturity Swap Rate is the Interest Rate Basis, the interest factor for each day will be computed by dividing the number of days in the interest period by 360 (the number of days to be calculated on the base is of a year of 360 days with twelve 30-day months (unless (i) the last day of the interest period is the 31st day of a month but the first day of the interest period is a day other than the 30th or 31st day of a month, in which case the month that includes that last day shall not be considered to be shortened to a 30-day month, or (ii) the last day of the interest period is the last day of the month of February, in which case the month of February shall not be considered to be lengthened to a 30-day month)). The interest factor for a Floating Rate Note as to which the interest rate is calculated with reference to two or more Interest Rate Bases will be calculated in each period in the same manner as if only the applicable Interest Rate Basis specified above applied.
(xiii) Determination of Interest Rate Basis. The Calculation Agent shall determine the rate derived from each Interest Rate Basis in accordance with the following provisions.
(A) CD Rate Notes. If the Interest Rate Basis is the CD Rate, this Note shall be deemed a “CD Rate Note.” Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, “CD Rate” means: (1) the rate on the particular Interest Determination Date for negotiable United States dollar certificates of deposit having the Index Maturity specified on the face hereof as published in H.15(519) (as defined below) under the caption “CDs (secondary market)”; or (2) if the rate referred to in clause (1) is not so published by 3:00 P.M., New York City time, on the related Calculation Date, the rate on the particular Interest Determination Date for negotiable United States dollar certificates of deposit of the particular Index Maturity as published in H.15 Daily Update (as defined below), or other recognized electronic source used for the purpose of displaying the applicable rate, under the caption “CDs (secondary market)”; or (3) if the rate referred to in clause (2) is not so published by 3:00 P.M., New York City time, on the related Calculation Date, the rate on

9


 

the particular Interest Determination Date calculated by the Calculation Agent as the arithmetic mean of the secondary market offered rates as of 10:00 A.M., New York City time, on that Interest Determination Date, of three leading non-bank dealers in negotiable United States dollar certificates of deposit in The City of New York (which may include the purchasing agent or its affiliates) selected by the Calculation Agent for negotiable United States dollar certificates of deposit of major United States money market banks for negotiable United States certificates of deposit with a remaining maturity closest to the particular Index Maturity in an amount that is representative for a single transaction in that market at that time; or (4) if the dealers so selected by the Calculation Agent are not quoting as mentioned in clause (3), the CD Rate in effect on the particular Interest Determination Date. “H.15(519)” means the weekly statistical release designated as H.15(519), or any successor publication, published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. “H.15 Daily Update” means the daily update of H.15(519), available through the world-wide-web site of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System at http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/H15/ update, or any successor site or publication.
(B) CMT Rate Notes. If the Interest Rate Basis is the CMT Rate, this Note shall be deemed a “CMT Rate Note.” Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, “CMT Rate” means:

     (c) Discount Notes. If this Note is specified on the face hereof as a “Discount Note”:
(i) Principal and Interest. This Note will bear interest in the same manner as set forth in Section 3(a) above, and payments of principal and interest shall be made as

18


 

set forth on the face hereof. Discount Notes may not bear any interest currently or may bear interest at a rate that is below market rates at the time of issuance. The difference between the Issue Price of a Discount Note and par is referred to as the “Discount”.
(ii) Redemption; Repayment; Acceleration. In the event a Discount Note is redeemed, repaid or accelerated, the amount payable to the Holder of such Discount Note will be equal to the sum of: (A) the Issue Price (increased by any accruals of Discount); and (B) any unpaid interest accrued on such Discount Note to the Maturity Date (“Amortized Face Amount”). Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, for purposes of determining the amount of Discount that has accrued as of any date on which a redemption, repayment or acceleration of maturity occurs for a Discount Note, a Discount will be accrued using a constant yield method. The constant yield will be calculated using a 30-day month, 360-day year convention, a compounding period that, except for the Initial Period (as defined below), corresponds to the shortest period between Interest Payment Dates for the applicable Discount Note (with ratable accruals within a compounding period), a coupon rate equal to the initial coupon rate applicable to the applicable Discount Note and an assumption that the maturity of such Discount Note will not be accelerated. If the period from the date of issue to the first Interest Payment Date for a Discount Note (the “Initial Period”) is shorter than the compounding period for such Discount Note, a proportionate amount of the yield for an entire compounding period will be accrued. If the Initial Period is longer than the compounding period, then the period will be divided into a regular compounding period and a short period with the short period being treated as provided above.
Section 4. Redemption. If no redemption right is set forth on the face hereof, this Note may not be redeemed prior to the Stated Maturity Date, except as set forth in the Indenture or in Section 10 hereof. In the case of a Note that is not a Discount Note, if a redemption right is set forth on the face of this Note, the Trust shall elect to redeem this Note on the Interest Payment Date after the Initial Redemption Date set forth on the face hereof on which the Funding Agreement is to be redeemed in whole or in part by Principal Life Insurance Company (“Principal Life”) (each, a “Redemption Date”), in which case this Note must be redeemed on such Redemption Date in whole or in part, as applicable, prior to the Stated Maturity Date, in increments of $1,000 at the applicable Redemption Price (as defined below), together with unpaid interest, if any, accrued thereon to, but excluding, the applicable Redemption Date. “Redemption Price” shall mean an amount equal to the Initial Redemption Percentage (as adjusted by the Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction, if applicable) multiplied by the unpaid Principal Amount of this Note to be redeemed. Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Initial Redemption Percentage shall be 100% and the Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction shall be 0%. The unpaid Principal Amount of this Note to be redeemed shall be determined by multiplying (1) the Outstanding Principal Amount of this Note by (2) the quotient derived by dividing (A) the outstanding principal amount of the Funding Agreement to be redeemed by Principal Life by (B) the outstanding principal amount of the Funding Agreement. Notice must be given not more than sixty (60) nor less than thirty (30) calendar days prior to the proposed Redemption Date. In the event of redemption of this Note in part only, a new Note for the unredeemed portion hereof shall be issued in the name of the Holder hereof upon the surrender hereof. If less than all of this

19


 

Note is redeemed, the Indenture Trustee will select by lot or, in its discretion, on a pro rata basis, the amount of the interest of each direct participant in the Trust to be redeemed.
Section 5. Sinking Funds. Unless specified on the face hereof, this Note will not be subject to, or entitled to the benefit of, any sinking fund.
Section 6. Repayment. If no repayment right is set forth on the face hereof, this Note may not be repaid at the option of the Holder hereof prior to the Stated Maturity Date. If a repayment right is granted on the face of this Note, this Note may be subject to repayment at the option of the Holder on any Interest Payment Date on and after the date, if any, indicated on the face hereof (each, a “Repayment Date”). On any Repayment Date, unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, this Note shall be repayable in whole or in part in increments of $1,000 at the option of the Holder hereof at a repayment price equal to 100% of the Principal Amount to be repaid, together with interest thereon payable to the Repayment Date. For this Note to be repaid in whole or in part at the option of the Holder hereof, this Note must be received by the Indenture Trustee, with the form entitled “Option to Elect Repayment”, below, duly completed by the Indenture Trustee. Exercise of such repayment option by the Holder hereof shall be irrevocable. In the event of a repayment of this Note in part only, a new Note for the portion hereof not repaid shall be issued in the name of the Holder hereof upon the surrender hereof.
Section 7. Modifications and Waivers. The Indenture contains provisions permitting the Trust and the Indenture Trustee (1) at any time and from time to time without notice to, or the consent of, the Holders of any Notes issued under the Indenture to enter into one or more supplemental indentures for certain enumerated purposes and (2) with the consent of the Holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Outstanding Notes affected thereby, to enter into one or more supplemental indentures for the purpose of adding any provisions to, or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of, the Indenture or of modifying in any manner the rights of Holders of Notes under the Indenture; provided, that, with respect to certain enumerated provisions, no such supplemental indenture shall be entered into without the consent of the Holder of each Note affected thereby. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Note and of any Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Note or such other Notes.
Section 8. Obligations Unconditional. No reference herein to the Indenture and no provisions of this Note or of the Indenture shall impair the right of each Holder of any Note, which is absolute and unconditional, to receive payment of the principal of, and any interest on, and premium, if any, on, such Note on the respective Stated Maturity Date or redemption date thereof and to institute suit for the enforcement of any such payment, and such rights shall not be impaired without the consent of such Holder.
Section 9. Events of Default. If an Event of Default with respect to this Note shall occur and be continuing, the principal of, and all other amounts payable on, the Notes may be declared due and payable, or may be automatically accelerated, as the case may be, in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture. In the event that this Note is a Discount Note, the amount of principal of this Note that becomes due and payable upon such acceleration shall be equal to the amount calculated as set forth in Section 3(c) hereof.
Section 10. Withholding; No Additional Amounts; Tax Event and Redemption. All amounts due on this Note will be made without any applicable withholding or deduction for or

20


 

on account of any present or future taxes, duties, levies, assessments or other governmental charges of whatever nature imposed or levied by or on behalf of any governmental authority, unless such withholding or deduction is required by law. Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Trust will not pay any additional amounts to the Holder of this Note in respect of such withholding or deduction, any such withholding or deduction will not give rise to an event of default or any independent right or obligation to redeem this Note and the Holder will be deemed for all purposes to have received cash in an amount equal to the portion of such withholding or deduction that is attributable to such Holder’s interest in this Note as equitably determined by the Trust.
     If (1) a Tax Event (defined below) as to the Funding Agreement occurs and (2) Principal Life redeems the Funding Agreement in whole or in part, the Trust will redeem the Notes, subject to the terms and conditions of Section 2.04 of the Standard Indenture Terms, at the Tax Event Redemption Price (defined below) together with unpaid interest accrued thereon to the applicable redemption date. “Tax Event” means that Principal Life shall have received an opinion of independent legal counsel stating in effect that as a result of (a) any amendment to, or change (including any announced prospective change) in, the laws (or any regulations thereunder) of the United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein or (b) any amendment to, or change in, an interpretation or application of any such laws or regulations by any governmental authority in the United States, which amendment or change is enacted, promulgated, issued or announced on or after the effective date of the Funding Agreement, there is more than an insubstantial risk that (i) the Trust is, or will be within ninety (90) days of the date thereof, subject to U.S. federal income tax with respect to interest accrued or received on the Funding Agreement or (ii) the Trust is, or will be within ninety (90) days of the date thereof, subject to more than a de minimis amount of taxes, duties or other governmental charges. “Tax Event Redemption Price” means an amount equal to the unpaid principal amount of this Note to be redeemed, which shall be determined by multiplying (1) the Outstanding Principal Amount of this Note by (2) the quotient derived by dividing (A) the outstanding principal amount to be redeemed by Principal Life of the Funding Agreement by (B) the outstanding principal amount of the Funding Agreement.
Section 11. Listing. Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, this Note will not be listed on any securities exchange.
Section 12. Collateral. The Collateral for this Note includes the Funding Agreement and the Guarantee specified on the face hereof.

     (b) Upon (1) the valid exercise of the Survivor’s Option and the proper tender of this Note by or on behalf of a person that has authority to act on behalf of the deceased Beneficial Owner of this Note under the laws of the appropriate jurisdiction (including, without limitation, the personal representative or executor of the deceased Beneficial Owner or the surviving joint owner of the deceased Beneficial Owner) (the “Representative”) and (2) the tender and acceptance of that portion of the Funding Agreement equal to the amount of the portion of this Note to be redeemed, the Trust shall repay this Note (or portion thereof) at a price equal to 100% of the unpaid Principal Amount of the deceased Beneficial Owner’s beneficial interest in this Note plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date of such repayment. However, the Trust shall not be obligated to repay:
(i) beneficial ownership interests in Notes exceeding the greater of $2,000,000 or 2% (or such other amounts, as specified in the Pricing Supplement) in aggregate principal amount for all notes then outstanding under the Principal® Life CoreNotes® Program and the Secured Medium-Term Notes Retail Program as of the end of the most recent calendar year (the “Annual Put Limitation”);
(ii) on behalf of an individual deceased Beneficial Owner, any beneficial ownership interest in all notes issued under the Principal® Life CoreNotes® Program and the Secured Medium-Term Notes Retail Program that exceeds $250,000 (or such other amounts, as specified in the Pricing Supplement) in any calendar year (the “Individual Put Limitation”); or
(iii) beneficial ownership interests in Notes exceeding the amount specified on the face hereof and in the Pricing Supplement (the “Trust Put Limitation”).
     (c) The Trust shall not make principal repayments pursuant to exercise of the Survivor’s Option in amounts that are less than $1,000, and, in the event that the limitations described in the preceding sentence would result in the partial repayment of this Note, the Principal Amount remaining Outstanding after repayment must be at least $1,000 (the minimum authorized denomination of the Notes).
     (d) An otherwise valid election to exercise the Survivor’s Option may not be withdrawn.

24


 

     (e) Election to exercise the Survivor’s Option will be accepted in the order that elections are received by the Trustee, except for any Notes (or portion thereof) the acceptance of which would contravene (1) the Annual Put Limitation, (2) the Individual Put Limitation or (3) the Trust Put Limitation. Any Note (or portion thereof) accepted for repayment pursuant to exercise of the Survivor’s Option shall be repaid on the first Interest Payment Date that occurs 20 or more calendar days after the date of such acceptance. If, as of the end of any calendar year, the aggregate principal amount of all notes (or portions thereof) issued under the Principal® Life CoreNotes® Program and the Secured Medium-Term Notes Retail Program that have been tendered pursuant to the valid exercise of the Survivor’s Option during such year has exceeded the Annual Put Limitation or the Individual Put Limitation, for such year, any exercise(s) of the Survivor’s Option with respect to Notes (or portions thereof) not accepted during such calendar year, because such acceptance would have contravened any such limitation, shall be deemed to be tendered on the first day of the following calendar year in the order all such Notes (or portions thereof) were originally tendered. If, as of the end of any calendar year, the aggregate principal amount of all Notes (or portions thereof) that have been tendered pursuant to the valid exercise of the Survivor’s Option during such year has exceeded the Trust Put Limitation, for such year, any exercise(s) of the Survivor’s Option with respect to Notes (or portions thereof) not accepted during such calendar year, because such acceptance would have contravened any such limitation, shall be deemed to be tendered on the first day of the following calendar year in the order all such Notes (or portions thereof) were originally tendered. In the event that this Note (or any portion hereof) tendered for repayment pursuant to valid exercise of the Survivor’s Option is not accepted or is to be delayed, the Trustee shall deliver a notice by first-class mail to the Depositary that states the reason such Note (or portion thereof) has not been accepted for payment or is to be delayed.
     (f) In order to obtain repayment through exercise of the Survivor’s Option with respect to this Note (or portion hereof), the Representative must provide the following items to the broker or other entity through which the beneficial interest in this Note is held by the deceased Beneficial Owner: (1) a written instruction to such broker or other entity in the form of Annex A attached hereto to notify the Depositary of the Representative’s desire to obtain repayment through the exercise of the Survivor’s Option; (2) appropriate evidence satisfactory to the Trustee that (i) the deceased Beneficial Owner purchased the Notes either within ninety (90) days of their issuance or acquired the Notes at least six (6) months before the date of death of such Deceased Beneficial Owner, (ii) the death of such Beneficial Owner has occurred, and the date of such death, and (iii) the Representative has authority to act on behalf of the deceased Beneficial Owner; (3) if the interest in this Note is held by a nominee of the deceased Beneficial Owner, a certificate satisfactory to the Trustee from such nominee attesting to the deceased’s beneficial ownership of this Note; (4) a written request for repayment signed by the Representative, with the signature guaranteed by a member firm of a registered national securities exchange or of the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. or a commercial bank or trust company having an office or correspondent in the United States; (5) if applicable, a properly executed assignment or endorsement; (6) tax waivers and such other instruments or documents that the Trustee reasonably requires in order to establish the validity of the beneficial ownership of this Note and the claimant’s entitlement to payment; and (7) any additional information the Trustee reasonably requires to evidence satisfaction of any conditions to the exercise of such Survivor’s Option or to document beneficial ownership or authority to make the election and to cause the repayment of this Note. Such broker or other entity shall then deliver

25


 

each of these items to the direct participant of the Depositary, such direct participant being the entity that holds the beneficial interest in this Note on behalf of the deceased Beneficial Owner, together with evidence satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee from the broker or other entity stating that it represents the deceased Beneficial Owner. Such direct participant shall then deliver such items to the Indenture Trustee. The Indenture Trustee will then deliver these items to the Trustee and will provide the Trustee with any additional information (after receipt from such direct participant) the Trustee may request in connection with such exercise. Such direct participant shall be responsible for disbursing any payments it receives from the Depositary pursuant to exercise of the Survivor’s Option to the appropriate Representative. All questions, other than with respect to the right to limit the aggregate Principal Amount of Notes as to which exercises of the Survivor’s Option shall be accepted in any one calendar year or as to the Notes, regarding the eligibility or validity of any exercise of the Survivor’s Option will be determined by the Trustee, in its sole discretion, which determination shall be final and binding on all parties.
     (g) The death of a person holding a beneficial interest in this Note as a joint tenant or tenant by the entirety with another person, or as a tenant in common with the deceased owner’s spouse, will be deemed the death of the Beneficial Owner of this Note, and the entire Principal Amount of this Note so held shall be subject to repayment by the Trust upon request in accordance with the terms and provisions hereof. However, the death of a person holding a beneficial interest in this Note as tenant in common with a person other than such deceased owner’s spouse will be deemed the death of a Beneficial Owner only with respect to such deceased person’s ownership interest in this Note.
     (h) The death of a person who was a lifetime beneficiary of a trust holding a beneficial interest in this Note will be treated as the death of the Beneficial Owner of this Note to the extent of that person’s interest in the trust. The death of a person who was a tenant by the entirety or joint tenant in a tenancy which is the beneficiary of a trust holding a beneficial interest in this Note will be treated as the death of the Beneficial Owner of this Note. The death of an individual who was a tenant in common in a tenancy which is the beneficiary of a trust holding a beneficial interest in this Note will be treated as the death of the Beneficial Owner of this Note only with respect to the deceased person’s beneficial interest in this Note, unless a husband and wife are the tenants in common, in which case the death of either will be treated as the death of the owner of this Note.
     (i) The death of a person who, during his or her lifetime, was entitled to substantially all of the beneficial ownership interests in this Note will be deemed the death of the Beneficial Owner of this Note for purposes of the Survivor’s Option, regardless of whether that Beneficial Owner was the registered holder of this Note, if such beneficial ownership interest can be established to the satisfaction of the Trustee. A beneficial ownership interest will be deemed to exist in typical cases of nominee ownership, such as ownership under the Uniform Transfers of Gifts to Minors Act, community property or other joint ownership arrangements between a husband and wife and lifetime custodial and trust arrangements.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING REPAYMENT ELECTION FORM AND
EXERCISING
REPAYMENT OPTION
     Capitalized terms used and not defined herein have the meanings defined in the accompanying Repayment Election Form.
1.   Collect and retain for a period of at least three years (1) satisfactory evidence of the authority of the Authorized Representative, (2) satisfactory evidence of death of the Deceased Beneficial Owner, (3) satisfactory evidence that the Deceased Beneficial Owner beneficially owned, at the time of his or her death, the notes being submitted for repayment, (4) satisfactory evidence that the notes being submitted for repayment either were purchased within ninety (90) days of their issuance or were acquired by the Deceased Beneficial Owner at least six (6) months before the date of the death of such Deceased Beneficial Owner, and (5) any necessary tax waivers. For purposes of determining whether the notes will be deemed beneficially owned by an individual at any given time, the following rules shall apply:
    If a note (or a portion thereof) is beneficially owned by tenants by the entirety or joint tenants, the note (or relevant portion thereof) will be regarded as beneficially owned by a single owner. Accordingly, the death of a tenant by the entirety or joint tenant will be deemed the death of the beneficial owner and the entire principal amount so owned will become eligible for repayment.
 
    The death of a person beneficially owning a note (or a portion thereof) by tenancy in common will be deemed the death of the beneficial owner only with respect to the deceased owner’s interest in the note (or relevant portion thereof) so owned, unless a husband and wife are the tenants in common, in which case the death of either will be deemed the death of the beneficial owner and the entire principal amount so owned will be eligible for repayment.
 
    A note (or a portion thereof) beneficially owned by a trust will be regarded as beneficially owned by each beneficiary of the trust to the extent of that beneficiary’s interest in the trust (however, a trust’s beneficiaries collectively cannot be beneficial owners of more notes than are owned by the trust). The death of a beneficiary of a trust will be deemed the death of the beneficial owner of the notes (or relevant portion thereof) beneficially owned by the trust to the extent of that beneficiary’s interest in the trust. The death of an individual who was a tenant by the entirety or joint tenant in a tenancy which is the beneficiary of a trust will be deemed the death of the beneficiary of the trust. The death of an individual who was a tenant in common in a tenancy which is the beneficiary of a trust will be deemed the death of the beneficiary of the trust only with respect to the deceased holder’s beneficial interest in the note, unless a husband and wife are the tenants in common, in which case the death of either will be deemed the death of the beneficiary of the trust.
 
    The death of a person who, during his or her lifetime, was entitled to substantially all of the beneficial interest in a note (or a portion thereof) will be deemed the death of the

30


 

      beneficial owner of that note (or relevant portion thereof), regardless of the registration of ownership, if such beneficial interest can be established to the satisfaction of the Trustee. Such beneficial interest will exist in many cases of street name or nominee ownership, custodial arrangements, ownership by a trustee, ownership under the Uniform Transfers of Gifts to Minors Act and community property or other joint ownership arrangements between spouses. Beneficial interest will be evidenced by such factors as the power to sell or otherwise dispose of a note, the right to receive the proceeds of sale or disposition and the right to receive interest and principal payments on a note.
