This optional feature automatically adjusts the values allocated to each account to match the percentages you specified on the policy application to fit your goals and risk tolerance. You may rebalance on a quarterly, semiannual, or annual basis. You may elect this option at any time; however,it's not available for funds in the Fixed Account or with dollar cost averaging.
Dollar Cost Averaging
This optional program lets you systematically allocate specified dollar amounts from the money market fund or the Fixed Account to the variable accounts. By allocating funds on a regular basis, as opposed to a one-time allocation, you may reduce the average cost per unit over time. If this option is elected from the Fixed Account, it must be requested at issue; however, it may be elected at any time from the money market fund. It is not available in conjunction with automatic rebalancing. Dollar cost averaging neither assures you of a profit, nor protects against loss in a declining market. It involves continuous investment in securities, regardless of fluctuating price levels. You need to consider if you'll be in a position to continue purchasing thorugh periods of low price levels.
Client Directed Monthly Deductions
The option is yours to have monthly deductions (such as cost of insurance or administrative charges) taken from a designated fund or funds. You can select up to five investment options (including the money market and Fixed Account) from which the monthly deductions will be taken. You can elect this option at any time.
