1. The LifeCare Benefit is an accelerated death benefit and may not be

available in all states. Maximum face amount: $5 million with LifeCare

Benefit. The LifeCare Benefit rider is not considered long term care

insurance in some states. When the policy death benefit is accelerated

for long term care expenses, the death benefit is reduced dollar for

dollar, and the cash value is reduced proportionately. For prospective

policyholders in New York, this product is a life insurance policy that

accelerates the death benefit for qualified long term care services and

is not a health insurance policy providing long term care insurance

subject to the minimum requirements of New York law; it does not

qualify for the New York State Partnership for Long-Term Care program

and is not a Medicare supplement policy.

2. Insurance policies and/or associated riders and features may not be

available in all states.

3. Guaranteed product features are dependent upon minimum premium

requirements and the claims-paying ability of the issuer.
