Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal.

Income LinkSM Rider Withdrawal Year

Each twelve-month period beginning on the Income LinkSM rider start date.

Withdrawal Base Adjustment

ARTICLE II

RIDER FEE

The rider fee is deducted on each rider quarter in arrears. The fee is calculated and stored at issue and at each subsequent rider quarter for the upcoming quarter. It will be deducted automatically from each investment option on a pro rata basis at the end of each rider quarter. The initial rider fee percentage is shown on page 1, in the Rider Data Specification section. The rider fee percentage will not change during the first rider year, and will only change thereafter due to an automatic step-up. You will be notified of any increase in the rider fee percentage. A portion of this fee will also be deducted when the rider is terminated based on the number of days that have elapsed since the previous rider quarter.

The stored fee will be adjusted if the withdrawal base is adjusted during the rider quarter.

The quarterly fee is calculated as follows:

Multiply (1) by (2) by (3).

 

1) Withdrawal Base;

 

2) Rider Fee Percentage;

 

3) Number of days remaining in the rider quarter divided by the number of days within the applicable rider year.

 

RGMB 39 0110    (2)    (Income-Joint)


ARTICLE III

GUARANTEED LIFETIME WITHDRAWAL BENEFIT

Under this rider, we guarantee that you can receive up to the rider withdrawal amount each Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, regardless of the policy value, (either through withdrawals or payments, where payments are equal to the rider withdrawal amount if your policy value equals zero) until the annuitant’s or the annuitant’s spouse’s death, whichever is later.

You can elect one of the withdrawal options shown in the table below:

Withdrawal Options

4.5% for 7 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 3.5% thereafter

5.5% for 6 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 3.5% thereafter

6.5% for 5 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 3.5% thereafter

7.5% for 4 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 3.5% thereafter

8.5% for 3 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 3.5% thereafter

9.5% for 2 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 3.5% thereafter

Once the withdrawal option is elected, you may choose when to begin receiving an Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal. These withdrawals are available with a frequency of monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual and are based on the withdrawal option. Prior to the Income LinkSM rider start date, you may change your frequency or the withdrawal option. After the Income LinkSM rider start date, the withdrawal option cannot be changed, however the Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal frequency can be changed and will go into effect the next Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year. Withdrawals prior to age 59 1/2 may be subject to the 10% penalty tax.

Withdrawals will reduce the policy value of the policy to which this rider is attached. If the policy value reaches zero through an Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal, you cannot make subsequent premium payments and all other policy features, benefits and guarantees are no longer available. Also, you will need to request payments by selecting the amount and frequency in accordance with the policy provisions to which this rider attaches, equal to the rider withdrawal amount. Once the payment amount and frequency are established, they cannot be changed and no additional withdrawals will be allowed.

SURVIVAL

The benefits under this rider depend on the annuitant or annuitant’s spouse being alive at the time of withdrawal or guaranteed payment. Proof of survival may be required by the Company.

RIDER WITHDRAWAL AMOUNT

Before the Income LinkSM rider start date, the rider withdrawal amount is zero. On the Income LinkSM rider start date and the beginning of each Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year thereafter, the rider withdrawal amount is equal to the withdrawal option percentage multiplied by the withdrawal base. During any Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, the remaining rider withdrawal amount may be adjusted (up or down) as described in the Withdrawal Base Adjustment section.

MINIMUM REQUIRED DISTRIBUTION

For a tax-qualified policy, a withdrawal may be taken to satisfy the IRS minimum required distribution as set forth herein and will not cause an adjustment to the withdrawal base. You must be at least 70 1/2 years old and take your withdrawals systematically as calculated using:

 

  A) the living annuitant’s age, or the annuitant’s spouse if the annuitant is deceased,

 

  B) the IRS Uniform Lifetime table or Joint Life and Survivor table,

 

  C) the policy value of the base policy to which this rider attaches, and

 

  D) amounts from the current calendar year (no carry-over from past years).

Any withdrawal taken during a calendar year will reduce the amount needed to satisfy the minimum required distribution. These withdrawals may be withdrawn without causing an adjustment to your withdrawal base, provided they are taken as systematic payouts as described below.

 

RGMB 39 0110    (3)    (Income-Joint)


ARTICLE III CONTINUED

 

Before the Income LinkSM rider start date, any minimum required distribution, as calculated in this section, must be withdrawn using a systematic minimum required distribution payout option, which is a systematic payout of modal payments on an annualized basis with a final non-modal payment, if necessary. This systematic payout option is available on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis. Any change to the frequency will go into effect on the next systematic payout option anniversary. Once you stop a systematic payout option, you cannot start a new one until one year from the date of the previous systematic payout option anniversary.

After the Income LinkSM rider start date, any minimum required distribution, as calculated in this section, must be withdrawn using the Income LinkSM rider systematic minimum required distribution payout option with a final non-modal payment, if necessary.

WITHDRAWAL BASE

The withdrawal base is used to calculate the rider withdrawal amount. On the rider date, the initial withdrawal base is equal to the policy value (less any premium enhancements if the rider is added in the first policy year). During any Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, the withdrawal base is increased or decreased by any withdrawal base adjustments.

On each rider anniversary, the withdrawal base will be set to the greatest of:

 

  1) The current withdrawal base;

 

  2) The policy value on the rider anniversary; or

 

  3) The highest policy value on a rider monthiversary for the current rider year.

Item 3) above will be zero if there is a negative withdrawal base adjustment in the current rider year.

AUTOMATIC STEP-UP FEATURE

The rider withdrawal base receives an automatic step-up on the rider anniversary if the withdrawal base is set equal to the policy value or the highest policy value on a rider monthiversary. The remaining rider withdrawal amount will be increased by the same percentage that the withdrawal base is increased due to the automatic step-up. This feature does not require the termination of the existing rider. This rider will continue with the same rider date and features. Following the first rider anniversary, the rider fee percentage may be increased due to an automatic step-up, but will not increase more than 0.75% from the initial rider fee percentage shown on page 1.

You have the right to reject an automatic step-up within 30 days following a rider anniversary, if the rider fee percentage increases. If you reject an automatic step-up, you must notify us in a manner which is acceptable to us, however you are eligible for future automatic step-ups. Changes as a result of the automatic step-up feature will be reversed. Any increase in the rider fee percentage will also be reversed, and the withdrawal base will be set to the withdrawal base prior to the automatic step-up.

WITHDRAWAL BASE ADJUSTMENTS

An Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal or a minimum required distribution systematic withdrawal will not reduce the withdrawal base.

The withdrawal base is increased by the dollar amount of any premium additions (not including any premium enhancements) and by an automatic step-up as described in the Automatic Step-Up Feature section. Any withdrawal (other than the Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal or a minimum required distribution systematic withdrawal), will decrease the withdrawal base as described below.

The withdrawal base is reduced by the greater of 1) and 2), where:

 

1)

is the amount of the withdrawal that is not an Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal or a minimum required distribution systematic withdrawal; and

 

2) is the result of (A multiplied by B), divided by C, where:

 

  A) is the amount in 1 above;

 

  B) is the withdrawal base prior to the withdrawal; and

 

  C) is the policy value prior to the withdrawal.

During any Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, if there is a withdrawal base adjustment, the remaining rider withdrawal amount and the Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal amount will increase or decrease by the same percentage as the withdrawal base.

 

RGMB 39 0110    (4)    (Income-Joint)


ARTICLE IV

CONTINUATION

In the case of spousal joint owners where one spouse is the annuitant, if the spouse who is not the annuitant dies and the surviving spouse is the sole beneficiary, the surviving spouse may elect to continue the policy and rider. In the case of spousal joint owners where one spouse is the annuitant, if the spouse who is the annuitant dies and the surviving spouse is the sole beneficiary, this rider continues until the death of the surviving spouse.

ANNUITIZATION

On the maximum annuity commencement date, as described in your policy, you will have the option to receive lifetime income payments that are no less than your rider withdrawal amount each year. This option will also guarantee that the sum of all income payments received over time will equal or exceed the policy value on the maximum annuity commencement date. If the annuitant or annuitant’s spouse should die before the sum of all income payments received equals or exceeds the policy value on the maximum annuity commencement date, the annuitant’s beneficiary will receive a final payment equal to the difference.

OWNERSHIP AND ASSIGNMENT

Ownership changes or assignments of any policy to which this rider is attached must be approved by the Company. We reserve the right to disapprove ownership changes or assignments in a non-discriminatory manner when involving an institutional investor, a settlement company or another similar organization.

TERMINATION

This rider will terminate upon the earliest of:

 

1) the date the policy to which this rider is attached terminates;

 

2) the later of the annuitant’s or annuitant’s spouse’s death;

 

3) the date you elect to receive annuity payments under your policy; and

 

4) the date you notify us in writing of your intention to terminate this rider (this date must be after the fifth rider anniversary).

Termination of the rider will result in the loss of all benefits provided by the rider.

GUARANTEED LIFETIME WITHDRAWAL BENEFIT

Under this rider, we guarantee that you can receive up to the rider withdrawal amount each Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, regardless of the policy value, (either through withdrawals or payments, where payments are equal to the rider withdrawal amount if your policy value equals zero) until the annuitant’s death.

Withdrawal Options

5.0% for 7 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 4.0% thereafter

6.0% for 6 Income LinkSM rider withdrawal years and 4.0% thereafter

Prior to the Income LinkSM rider start date, you may change your frequency or the withdrawal option. After the Income LinkSM rider start date, the withdrawal option cannot be changed, however the Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal frequency can be changed and will go into effect the next Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year. Withdrawals prior to age 59 1/2 may be subject to the 10% penalty tax.

Withdrawals will reduce the policy value of the policy to which this rider is attached. If the policy value reaches zero through an Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal, you cannot make subsequent premium payments and all other policy features, benefits and guarantees are no longer available. Also, you will need to request payments by selecting the amount and frequency in accordance with the policy provisions to which this rider attaches, equal to the rider withdrawal amount. Once the payment amount and frequency are established, they cannot be changed and no additional withdrawals will be allowed.

SURVIVAL

The benefits under this rider depend on the annuitant being alive at the time of withdrawal or guaranteed payment. Proof of survival may be required by the Company.

RIDER WITHDRAWAL AMOUNT

Before the Income LinkSM rider start date, the rider withdrawal amount is zero. On the Income LinkSM rider start date and the beginning of each Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year thereafter, the rider withdrawal amount is equal to the withdrawal option percentage multiplied by the withdrawal base. During any Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, the remaining rider withdrawal amount may be adjusted (up or down) as described in the Withdrawal Base Adjustment section.

MINIMUM REQUIRED DISTRIBUTION

For a tax-qualified policy, a withdrawal may be taken to satisfy the IRS minimum required distribution as set forth herein and will not cause an adjustment to the withdrawal base. You must be at least 70 1/2 years old and take your withdrawals systematically as calculated using:

 

  A) the living annuitant’s age,

 

  B) the IRS Uniform Lifetime table or Joint Life and Survivor table,

 

  C) the policy value of the base policy to which this rider attaches, and

 

  D) amounts from the current calendar year (no carry-over from past years).

Any withdrawal taken during a calendar year will reduce the amount needed to satisfy the minimum required distribution. These withdrawals may be withdrawn without causing an adjustment to your withdrawal base, provided they are taken as systematic payouts as described below.

 

RGMB 39 0110    (3)    (Income-Single)


ARTICLE III CONTINUED

 

Before the Income LinkSM rider start date, any minimum required distribution, as calculated in this section, must be withdrawn using a systematic minimum required distribution payout option, which is a systematic payout of modal payments on an annualized basis with a final non-modal payment, if necessary. This systematic payout option is available on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis. Any change to the frequency will go into effect on the next systematic payout option anniversary. Once you stop a systematic payout option, you cannot start a new one until one year from the date of the previous systematic payout option anniversary.

After the Income LinkSM rider start date, any minimum required distribution, as calculated in this section, must be withdrawn using the Income LinkSM rider systematic minimum required distribution payout option with a final non-modal payment, if necessary.

WITHDRAWAL BASE

The withdrawal base is used to calculate the rider withdrawal amount. On the rider date, the initial withdrawal base is equal to the policy value (less any premium enhancements if the rider is added in the first policy year). During any Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, the withdrawal base is increased or decreased by any withdrawal base adjustments.

On each rider anniversary, the withdrawal base will be set to the greatest of:

 

  1) The current withdrawal base;

 

  2) The policy value on the rider anniversary; or

 

  3) The highest policy value on a rider monthiversary for the current rider year.

Item 3) above will be zero if there is a negative withdrawal base adjustment in the current rider year.

AUTOMATIC STEP-UP FEATURE

The rider withdrawal base receives an automatic step-up on the rider anniversary if the withdrawal base is set equal to the policy value or the highest policy value on a rider monthiversary. The remaining rider withdrawal amount will be increased by the same percentage that the withdrawal base is increased due to the automatic step-up. This feature does not require the termination of the existing rider. This rider will continue with the same rider date and features. Following the first rider anniversary, the rider fee percentage may be increased due to an automatic step-up, but will not increase more than 0.75% from the initial rider fee percentage shown on page 1.

You have the right to reject an automatic step-up within 30 days following a rider anniversary, if the rider fee percentage increases. If you reject an automatic step-up, you must notify us in a manner which is acceptable to us, however you are eligible for future automatic step-ups. Changes as a result of the automatic step-up feature will be reversed. Any increase in the rider fee percentage will also be reversed, and the withdrawal base will be set to the withdrawal base prior to the automatic step-up.

WITHDRAWAL BASE ADJUSTMENTS

An Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal or a minimum required distribution systematic withdrawal will not reduce the withdrawal base.

The withdrawal base is increased by the dollar amount of any premium additions (not including any premium enhancements) and by an automatic step-up as described in the Automatic Step-Up Feature section. Any withdrawal (other than the Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal or a minimum required distribution systematic withdrawal), will decrease the withdrawal base as described below.

The withdrawal base is reduced by the greater of 1) and 2), where:

 

1)

is the amount of the withdrawal that is not an Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal or a minimum required distribution systematic withdrawal; and

 

2) is the result of (A multiplied by B), divided by C, where:

 

  A) is the amount in 1 above;

 

  B) is the withdrawal base prior to the withdrawal; and

 

  C) is the policy value prior to the withdrawal.

During any Income LinkSM rider withdrawal year, if there is a withdrawal base adjustment, the remaining rider withdrawal amount and the Income LinkSM rider systematic withdrawal amount will increase or decrease by the same percentage as the withdrawal base.

ARTICLE IV

CONTINUATION

In the case of spousal joint owners where one spouse is the annuitant, if the spouse who is not the annuitant dies and the surviving spouse is the sole beneficiary, the surviving spouse may elect to continue the policy and rider. In the case of spousal joint owners where one spouse is the annuitant, if the spouse who is the annuitant dies, this rider will terminate.

In the case of non-spousal joint owners where an owner who is not the annuitant dies, the surviving owner (who is also the sole designated beneficiary) may elect to receive lifetime income payments under this rider instead of receiving any benefits applicable to the policy. The lifetime income payments must begin no later than 1 year after the owner’s death and will be equal to the rider withdrawal amount divided by the number of payments made per year. Once the payments begin, no additional premium payments will be accepted and no additional withdrawals will be paid.

ANNUITIZATION

On the maximum annuity commencement date, as described in your policy, you will have the option to receive lifetime income payments that are no less than your rider withdrawal amount each year. This option will also guarantee that the sum of all income payments received over time will equal or exceed the policy value on the maximum annuity commencement date. If the annuitant should die before the sum of all income payments received equals or exceeds the policy value on the maximum annuity commencement date, the annuitant’s beneficiary will receive a final payment equal to the difference.

OWNERSHIP AND ASSIGNMENT

Ownership changes or assignments of any policy to which this rider is attached must be approved by the Company. We reserve the right to disapprove ownership changes or assignments in a non-discriminatory manner when involving an institutional investor, a settlement company or another similar organization.

TERMINATION

This rider will terminate upon the earliest of:

 

1) the date the policy to which this rider is attached terminates;

 

2) the annuitant’s death;

 

3) the date you elect to receive annuity payments under your policy; and

 

4) the date you notify us in writing of your intention to terminate this rider (this date must be after the fifth rider anniversary).

Termination of the rider will result in the loss of all benefits provided by the rider.
