I acknowledge that by authorizing the Semester StrategiesSM program for the plan’s participants: (1) the Semester Strategies program is optional for participants to enroll in at their own election; (2) in order to enroll, each participant will need to enter into their own agreement with SWBC; (3) if the plan sponsor terminates availability of the Semester Strategies program, the plan sponsor must notify Equitable Financial Life Insurance Company at least 45 days in advance. This termination request will also terminate any participant agreements with SWBC in regards to the Semester Strategies program. If the program is terminated, participants have the option to provide new allocation instructions for future contributions and/or transfer their account balances among the available investment options under the contract. If Equitable does not receive new instructions, the participant’s allocation instructions will not change from the allocation instructions set under the program, which was based on the prior Model Portfolio a participant had prior to terminating the program. All account balances will also remain in the investment options based on the prior Model Portfolio under the program.
