This does not include fees associated with the underlying investment options or optional guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit rider.

3. Corporate trustee services provided by Charles Schwab Trust Company of Delaware.

Variable annuities are registered products that are sold by prospectus only. Prospectuses can be obtained by calling 888-667-2145 (option 2). Before purchasing, investors should carefully read the prospectus and consider its investment objectives and all risks, charges, and expenses associated with the annuity and its investment options.

Variable annuities are long-term investments intended for retirement planning and involve market risk and the possible loss of principal. Any withdrawals prior to 59½ may be subject to income tax and a 10% federal tax penalty. Investments in variable annuities are subject to fees and charges from the insurance company and the investment managers.

Because a variable annuity's value will fluctuate depending on the performance of the underlying portfolios, an investor's units, when redeemed, may be more or less than the original amount invested. 

Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. is a licensed insurance agency and distributes annuity contracts and other insurance products that are issued by leading insurance companies that are not affiliated with Schwab. Not all products are available in all states.

Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than the net asset value (NAV).

Diversification strategies do not ensure a profit and do not protect against losses in declining markets.

Fixed income securities are subject to increased loss of principal during periods of rising interest rates. Fixed-income investments are subject to various other risks including changes in credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, early redemption, corporate events, tax ramifications and other factors.

Investments in managed accounts should be considered in view of a larger, more diversified investment portfolio.

Alternative investments, including funds that invest in alternative investments, are risky and may not be suitable for all investors. Alternative investments often employ leveraging and other speculative practices that increase an investor's risk of loss to include complete loss of investment, often charge high fees, and can be highly illiquid and volatile. Alternative investments may lack diversification, involve complex tax structures and have delays in reporting important tax information.
