Key features

A comprehensive lineup of investment options from some of the most recognized money managers in the industry. 
Maintains the asset allocation balance selected by automatically transferring money between investment options on a regular basis without generating a taxable event, so the original allocation objectives are maintained. Restrictions apply. Please see prospectus for details.

Allows for gradual investment over time, systematically buying more units when prices are low and fewer units when prices are high. This can potentially lower the average cost of variable units.

Dollar cost averaging requires regular investing regardless of fluctuating prices and does not guarantee profits or prevent losses in a declining market. Individuals should consider their financial ability to continue transfers through periods of both high and low price levels. Amounts allocated to the subaccounts of the separate account are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal. Restrictions apply. Please see prospectus for details.

During the accumulation phase, unlimited transfers between subaccounts are allowed each year without a fee. Restrictions apply. Please see prospectus for details.
The opportunity to receive guaranteed lifetime payments through a variety of payment schedules and options, should the policy be annuitized.
