Guaranteed Withdrawal Balance (GWB): This is the value used to determine the Lifetime Income Amount (LIA). If the rider is added at issue, the initial GWB equals the amount of the initial premium. If the rider is added after the policy is issued, the initial GWB equals the contract value on the rider effective date. The GWB decreases as a result of withdrawals.

The GWB increases as a result of: ■ Additional premiums ■ Bonuses ■ Step-ups The GWB is only used to determine the Lifetime Income Amount. It is not available as a lump sum withdrawal amount nor is it a death benefit.


During the first 20 years of rider, the GWB will be increased by a bonus every year that a partial surrender (including lifetime income) is not taken. The bonus will equal 7.2 percent of the GWB each year for the first 10 years of the rider. For rider years 11-20, the bonus percentage will be at least 4 percent.

Step ups:

The GWB will step-up to the contract value on each rider anniversary and on the Lifetime Income Start Date.

Lifetime Income Amount: The LIA is the annual lifetime income available from the rider after the Lifetime Income Start Date. The annual LIA is based upon the age the first LIA withdrawal is taken. For a joint life withdrawal option, the lifetime income percentage is based on the youngest age of the annuitant and spouse beneficiary. The annual amount payable equals the lifetime income percentage from the following table times the GWB. Lifetime Income Start Age 50-54 55-59 60-64 65-69 70-74 75-79 80-84 85-89 90 and above

Single Lifetime Income Option 3.0% 3.5% 4.0% 4.5% 5.0% 5.5% 6.0% 6.5% 7.0%

Joint Lifetime Income Option 2.5% 3.0% 3.5% 4.0% 4.5% 5.0% 5.5% 6.0% 6.5%

Withdrawals: Prior to starting the LIA, a policyholder may elect a withdrawal. A withdrawal will reduce the GWB in the same proportion that the account value was reduced and there will be no bonus applied in that year. Excess Withdrawal Provision: Withdrawals greater than the LIA cause the LIA to be reduced. The LIA is reduced in the same proportion the contract value was reduced by excess withdrawals. Required minimum distributions are not considered excess withdrawals. Nursing Home Confinement Enhancement: After the rider has been in force for three years, if the annuitant is confined to an eligible nursing home for more than 180 days in a 250-day period, the Lifetime Income Amount is increased by 50 percent. The Nursing Home Confinement Enhancement applies on a single life basis. If income started on a joint life basis, the Nursing Home Confinement Enhancement would only apply if the surviving person met the qualifications. The Nursing Home Confinement Enhancement is not available in California, Connecticut, Florida and Maryland.
