The following hereby replaces the corresponding sections in “Charges and expenses — Charges under the contracts — Withdrawal charge (Series B contracts only)”:


10% free withdrawal amount. For Series B contracts, each contract year you can withdraw up to 10% of your account value without paying a withdrawal charge (often referred to as the “10% free withdrawal amount” or “free withdrawal amount”). No withdrawal charge applies to Select and Series ADV contracts. The 10% free withdrawal amount is determined using your account value at the beginning of the contract year. In the first contract year amounts received within 90 days of the contract date are included for purposes of calculating the free withdrawal amount. When a contract is surrendered, the free withdrawal amount is not taken into account when calculating the amount of the withdrawal charge.


Assume you made an initial contribution of $100,000 to a 6-year Segment and a subsequent contribution of $40,000 in contract year 2 to another 6-year Segment. At the beginning of the seventh contract year, if your account value is $200,000, you could withdraw up to $160,000 free of withdrawal charges on that day ($20,000 from the 10% free withdrawal amount plus $100,000 from contributions which are no longer subject to withdrawal charges plus $40,000 of remaining earnings). Assume you withdraw the entire Segment Maturity Value of the first Segment when it matures (assume that is $150,000 and your contract’s account value on that day is $200,500) you would not pay a withdrawal charge since no contributions subject to withdrawal charges are deemed withdrawn (the $150,000 withdrawn for withdrawal charge purposes is deemed comprised of $20,000 from the 10% free withdrawal amount plus $100,000 from contributions which are no longer subject to withdrawal charges plus $30,000 of earnings).
