*The guaranteed future value is the policy value multiplied by the protection level percentage on the living benefit date. After the living benefit date, the guaranteed future value is increased by a percentage of subsequent payments multiplied by the protection level percentage and reduced for adjusted withdrawals.
Withdrawals of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and may be subject to a 10% additional federal tax if withdrawn before age 59½.

If you elect an optional living benefit, there are certain underlying investment options offered in the policy that use a volatility control strategy. If you elect one of the optional living benefits, Transamerica requires the Policy Value to be allocated in a manner described in the contract, which may include a volatility control strategy. In periods of high market volatility, volatility control strategies could limit your participation in market gains; this may conflict with your investment objectives by limiting the ability to maximize potential growth of the Policy Value and, in turn, the value of any guaranteed benefit that is tied to investment performance. Volatility control strategies are intended to help limit overall volatility and reduce the effects of significant market downturns during periods of high market volatility, providing policy owners with the opportunity for smoother performance and better risk-adjusted returns. You pay an additional fee for the living benefits which, in part, pay for protecting the living benefit base from investment losses. Since the living benefit base does not decrease as a result of investment losses, volatility control strategies might not provide any meaningful additional benefit. If you determine that underlying funds with volatility control strategies are not consistent with you investment objectives, other investment options are available under the living benefits that do not invest in funds that utilize volatility control strategies.
Living benefit is referred to as a rider in the contract
