Protective refers to Protective Life Insurance Company (PLICO), Nashville, TN. Variable annuities are distributed by Investment Distributors, Inc. (IDI), Birmingham, AL, a broker-dealer and the principal underwriter for registered products issued by PLICO and PLAIC, its affiliates. Product guarantees are backed by the financial strength and claims-paying ability of PLICO.

Variable annuities are long-term investments intended for retirement planning and involve market risk and the possible loss of principal. Investments in variable annuities are subject to fees and changes from the insurance company and the investment managers.

Withdrawals reduce the annuity's remaining death benefit, contract value, cash surrender value and future earnings. Withdrawals may be subject to income tax and, if taken prior to age 59½, an additional 10% IRS tax penalty may apply. More frequent withdrawals may reduce earnings more than annual withdrawals. During the withdrawal charge period, withdrawals in excess of the penalty-free amount may be subject to a withdrawal charge.
