     The Principal Life Income Fundings Trust designated above (the “Trust”), for value received, hereby promises to pay to Cede & Co., or its registered assigns, the Principal Amount specified above on the Stated Maturity Date specified above and, if so specified above, to pay interest thereon from the Original Issue Date specified above or from the most recent Interest Payment Date specified above to which interest has been paid or duly provided for at the rate per annum determined in accordance with the provisions on the reverse hereof and as specified

above, until the principal hereof is paid or made available for payment. Unless otherwise specified above, 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”). If the Specified Currency specified above is other than U.S. Dollars, the Holder (as defined in the Indenture) shall receive such payments in such Foreign Currency (as hereinafter defined). 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. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have their meanings set forth in the Indenture, dated as of the date of the Pricing 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.
     REFERENCE IS HEREBY MADE TO THE FURTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS NOTE SET FORTH ON THE REVERSE HEREOF. SUCH FURTHER PROVISIONS SHALL FOR ALL PURPOSES HAVE THE SAME EFFECT AS IF SET FORTH AT THIS PLACE.
     Unless the certificate of authentication hereon shall have been executed by the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture, this Note shall not be entitled to any benefit under such Indenture or be valid or obligatory for any purpose.

[REVERSE FORM OF NOTE]
Section 1. General. This Note is one of a duly authorized issue of Notes of the Trust. The Notes are issued pursuant to the Indenture.
Section 2. Currency.
     (a) Unless specified otherwise on the face hereof, this Note is denominated in, and payments of principal, premium, if any, and/or interest, if any, will be made in U.S. Dollars. If specified as the Specified Currency, this Note may be denominated in, and payments of principal, premium, if any, and/or interest, if any, may be made in a single currency other than U.S. Dollars (a “Foreign Currency”). If this Note is denominated in a Foreign Currency, the Holder of this Note is required to pay for this Note in the Specified Currency.
     (b) Unless specified otherwise on the face hereof, if this Note is denominated in a Foreign Currency, the Trust is obligated to make payments of principal of, and premium, if any, and interest, if any, on, this Note in the Specified Currency. Any amounts so payable by the Trust in the Specified Currency will be converted by the Exchange Rate Agent into U.S. Dollars for payment to the Holder hereof unless otherwise specified on the face of this Note or the Holder elects, in the manner described below, to receive these amounts in the Specified Currency. If this Note is denominated in a Foreign Currency, any U.S. Dollar amount to be received by the Holder hereof will be based on the highest bid quotation in The City of New York received by the Exchange Rate Agent at approximately 11:00 A.M., New York City time, on the second Business Day preceding the applicable payment date from three recognized foreign exchange dealers (one of whom may be the Exchange Rate Agent) selected by the Exchange Rate Agent and approved by the Trust for the purchase by the quoting dealer of the Specified Currency for U.S. Dollars for settlement on that payment date in the aggregate amount of the Specified Currency payable to all Holders of the Notes scheduled to receive U.S. Dollar payments and at which the applicable dealer commits to execute a contract. All currency exchange costs will be borne by the Holders of the Notes by deductions from any payments. If three bid quotations are not available, payments will be made in the Specified Currency. If this Note is denominated in a Foreign Currency, the Holder of this Note may elect to receive all or a specified portion of any payment of principal, premium, if any, and/or interest, if any, in the Specified Currency by submitting a written request to the Indenture Trustee at its Corporate Trust Office in The City of New York on or prior to the applicable Regular Record Date or at least 15 calendar days prior to the Maturity Date, as the case may be. This written request may be mailed or hand delivered or sent by cable, telex or other form of facsimile transmission. This election will remain in effect until revoked by written notice delivered to the Indenture Trustee on or prior to a Regular Record Date or at least 15 calendar days prior to the Maturity Date, as the case may be. The Holder of a Note denominated in a Foreign Currency to be held in the name of a broker or nominee should contact their broker or nominee to determine whether and how an election to receive payments in the Specified Currency may be made. Unless specified otherwise on the face hereof, if the Specified Currency is other than U.S. Dollars, a beneficial owner of a Note represented by a global security which elects to receive payments of principal, premium, if any, and/or interest, if any, in the Specified Currency must notify the participant through which it owns its interest on or prior to the applicable Regular Record Date or at least 15

6


 

calendar days prior to the Maturity Date, as the case may be, of its election. The applicable participant must notify DTC of its election on or prior to the third Business Day after the applicable Regular Record Date or at least 12 calendar days prior to the Maturity Date, as the case may be, and DTC will notify the Indenture Trustee of that election on or prior to the fifth Business Day after the applicable Regular Record Date or at least ten calendar days prior the Maturity Date, as the case may be. If complete instructions are received by the participant from the applicable beneficial owner and forwarded by the participant to DTC, and by DTC to the Indenture Trustee, on or prior to such dates, then the applicable beneficial owner will receive payments in the Specified Currency.
     (c) The Trust will indemnify the Holder hereof against any loss incurred as a result of any judgment or order being given or made for any amount due under this Note and that judgment or order requiring payment in a currency (the “Judgment Currency”) other than the Specified Currency, and as a result of any variation between: (i) the rate of exchange at which the Specified Currency amount is converted into the Judgment Currency for the purpose of that judgment or order; and (ii) the rate of exchange at which the Holder, on the date of payment of that judgment or order, is able to purchase the Specified Currency with the amount of the Judgment Currency actually received.
     (d) Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, if payment hereon is required to be made in a Foreign Currency and such currency is unavailable due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the Trust’s control, then the Trust will be entitled to make payments with respect hereto in U.S. Dollars on the basis of the Market Exchange Rate (as hereinafter defined), computed by the Exchange Rate Agent, on the second Business Day prior to the particular payment or, if the Market Exchange Rate is not then available, on the basis of the most recently available Market Exchange Rate.
     (e) The “Market Exchange Rate” for the Foreign Currency shall mean the noon dollar buying rate in The City of New York for cable transfers for the Foreign Currency as certified for customs purposes (or, if not so certified, as otherwise determined) by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
     (f) All determinations made by the Exchange Rate Agent shall be at its sole discretion and shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive for all purposes and binding on the Holder hereof.
     (g) All costs of exchange in respect of this Note, if denominated in a Foreign Currency, will be borne by the Holder hereof.
Section 3. Determination of Interest Rate and Certain Other Terms.
  (a)   Fixed Rate Notes. If this Note is specified on the face hereof as a “Fixed Rate Note”:
(i) This Note will bear interest at the rate per annum specified on the face hereof. Interest on this Note will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months.

7


 

(ii) Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Interest Payment Dates for this Note will be as follows:
     
Interest Payment Frequency   Interest Payment Dates
Monthly
  Fifteenth day of each calendar month, beginning in the first calendar month following the month this Note was issued.
 
   
Quarterly
  Fifteenth day of every third calendar month, beginning in the third calendar month following the month this Note was issued.
 
   
Semi-annual
  Fifteenth day of every sixth calendar month, beginning in the sixth calendar month following the month this Note was issued.
 
   
Annual
  Fifteenth day of every twelfth calendar month, beginning in the twelfth calendar month following the month this Note was issued.
(iii) If any Interest Payment Date or the Maturity Date of this Note falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the Trust will make the required payment of principal, premium, if any, and/or 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.
  (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 below, include the CD Rate, the CMT Rate, the Commercial Paper Rate, the Constant Maturity Swap Rate; the Eleventh District Cost of Funds Rate, the Federal Funds Open Rate, the Federal Funds Rate, LIBOR, EURIBOR, 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

8


 

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 or an Inverse Floating 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) Inverse Floating Rate Notes. If this Note is specified on the face hereof as an “Inverse Floating Rate Note”, this Note will bear interest at the Fixed Interest Rate minus 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; provided, however, that interest on this Inverse Floating Rate Note will not be less than zero. Commencing on the first Interest Reset Date, the rate at which interest on this Inverse 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.
(vii) Interest Reset Dates. The period between Interest Reset Dates will be the “Interest Reset Period.” Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the Interest 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

9


 

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, with the exception of any monthly reset Floating Rate Note as to which the Eleventh District Cost of Funds Rate is an applicable Interest Rate Basis, which will reset on the first calendar day of the 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.
(viii) 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, 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 the Eleventh District Cost of Funds Rate—the last working day of the month immediately preceding the related Interest Reset Date on which the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco publishes the Eleventh District Index (as defined below); (6) with respect to LIBOR and EURIBOR—the second London Banking Day (as defined below) preceding the related Interest Reset Date; and (7) 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

10


 

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.
(ix) 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, EURIBOR and the Eleventh District Cost of Funds Rate, 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.
(x) 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.
(xi) 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

11


 

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.
(xii) 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, in the case of U.S. Dollars, to the nearest cent or, in the case of a Foreign Currency, to the nearest unit (with one-half cent or unit being rounded upwards).
(xiii) 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 Eleventh District Cost of Funds Rate, the Federal Funds Open Rate, the Federal Funds Rate, LIBOR, EURIBOR 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.
(xiv) 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.

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 occurring on or 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. The Initial Redemption Percentage, if any, applicable to this Note shall decline at each anniversary of the Initial Redemption Date by an amount equal to the applicable Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction, if any, until the Redemption Price is equal to 100% of the unpaid amount thereof to be redeemed. 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 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.

If this Note is an Amortizing Note, this Note may pay an amount in respect of both interest and principal amortized over the life of this Note.
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 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.
Section 13. No Recourse Against Certain Persons.

Transfer of principal, premium (if any) and interest to participants of DTC will be the responsibility of DTC, and transfer of principal, premium (if any) and interest to beneficial holders of the Notes by participants of DTC will be the responsibility of such participants and other nominees of such beneficial holders. So long as the book-entry system is in effect, the selection of any Notes to be redeemed or repaid will be determined by DTC pursuant to rules and procedures established by DTC and its participants. Neither the Trust nor the Indenture Trustee shall be responsible or liable for such transfers or payments or for maintaining, supervising or reviewing the records maintained by DTC, its participants or persons acting through such participants.
