The Structured Capital Strategies® PLUS Return of Premium Death Benefit rider is offered to ages between 0 and 75, with the maximum contribution age set at 75. You cannot terminate the Return of Premium Death Benefit once you elect it. The Return of Premium Death Benefit fee is equal to an annual rate of 0.20% for all segments for Structured Capital Strategies® PLUS and Variable Investment Options. The rider charges are reflected in the Segment Interim Value. The fee is deducted from Structured Investment Option based on the segment investment amount. The death of the reference life on a contract determines when the Return of Premium Death Benefit is payable. The reference life for the Return of Premium Death Benefit is the original owner(s) (or annuitant, if applicable). The reference life will be set for the life of the contract at issue. For joint owner contracts, both spouses are reference lives, and the Return of Premium Death Benefit is payable upon the death of the second spouse. After the death of the first spouse, the remaining reference life is the surviving spouse.
