Effective on January 1, 2021, as permitted by regulations adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the insurance company that offers your variable annuity or variable life insurance contract may no longer send you paper copies of the portfolios’ shareholder reports by mail, unless you specifically request paper copies of the reports from the insurance company or your financial intermediary. Instead, the insurance company may choose to make the reports available on a website, and the insurance company will notify you by mail each time a report is posted and provide you with a website link to access the report. Instructions for requesting paper copies will be provided by your insurance company.
If you already elected to receive shareholder reports electronically (“e-delivery”), you will not be affected by this change and you need not take any action. If your insurance company offers electronic delivery, you may elect to receive shareholder reports and other communications from the insurance company electronically by following the instructions provided by the insurance company.
You may elect to receive all future reports in paper free of charge from the insurance company. You can inform the insurance company or your financial intermediary that you wish to continue receiving paper copies of your shareholder reports by following the instructions provided by the insurance company or by contacting your financial intermediary. That election will apply to all portfolios available under your contract with the insurance company.
