The Credit Suisse Balanced Trend index and “Credit Suisse”, and any trademarks, service marks and logos related thereto are service marks of Credit Suisse Group AG, Credit Suisse International, or one of their affiliates (collectively, “Credit Suisse”). Credit Suisse has no relationship to National Life Insurance Company (“NLIC”), other than the licensing of the Credit Suisse Balanced Trend index and its service marks for use in connection with the FlexLife or PeakLife Indexed Universal Life Insurance Policies and is not a party to any transaction contemplated hereby.
The rules of the Credit Suisse Balanced Trend index may be amended by Credit Suisse International (the “Index Creator”). An amendment to the rules may result from, without limitation, a change to the construction or calculation rules for the Index or from the Index Creator determining that a change to the rules is required or desirable in order to update them or to address an error, omission or ambiguity. No assurance can be given that any such amendment would not affect parties to this document.
The Index is an excess return index, which means that it reflects the return of components net of the cost of funding a hypothetical investment in them. The Index returns are likely to be negatively affected by such costs of funding. The Index has a 0.5% per annum embedded fee deducted on a daily basis. The index fee will place a drag on the performance of the Index, offsetting any appreciation of its portfolio, exacerbating any depreciation of its portfolio and causing the level of the Index to decline steadily if the value of its portfolio remains relatively constant.
The end-of-day value of the Credit Suisse Balanced Trend index is published subject to the provisions in the rules of the Index. Neither the Index Creator nor any of its affiliates is obliged to publish any information regarding the index other than as stipulated in the rules of these indices.

The selection of the Index as a crediting option under the FlexLife or PeakLife Indexed Universal Life Insurance Policies does not obligate NLIC or Credit Suisse to invest premium payments in the components of the Index or in other products linked to the Index.

Receipt of Accelerated Benefits will reduce the Cash Value and Death Benefit otherwise payable under the policy, may result in a taxable event, and may affect your client's eligibility for public assistance programs. Riders are supplemental benefits that can be added to a life insurance policy and are not suitable unless the client has a need for life insurance. Riders are optional, may require additional premium and may not be available in all states. Any claim for critical illness or critical injury benefits for a given Qualifying Event must be filed within 365 days following the occurrence of such Qualifying Event. In CA the critical injury rider is only available to clients ages 0 - 64.
The Lifetime Income Benefit Rider provides a benefit for the life of the insured if certain conditions are met, including but not limited to the insured’s attained age being between age 60 and 85, and that the policy has been in force at least 10 years. Insufficient policy values or outstanding policy loans may also restrict exercising the rider.
The interest bonus is referred to as the Annual Accumulated Value Enhancement (AAVE) rider in the contract. Enhancer, Enhancer Plus and Enhancer Max only credit a bonus in crediting periods where interest is credited to that strategy, beginning in year 2. If no indexed interest is credited for that period, no bonus will be credited. The charge for Enhancer Plus and Enhancer Max begins in year 1 and occurs for every crediting period regardless of whether interest is credited.

In calculating the performance of the Index, SG deducts a maintenance fee of 0.50% per annum on the level of the Index, and fi xed transaction and replication costs, each calculated and deducted on a daily basis. The transaction and replication costs cover, among other things, rebalancing and replication costs. The total amount of transaction and replication costs is not predictable and will depend on a number of factors, including the leverage of the Index, which may be as high as %, the performance of the components underlying the Index, market conditions and the changes in the market environments, among other factors. The transaction and replication costs, which are increased by the Index’s leverage, and the maintenance fee will reduce the potential positive change in the Index and increase the potential negative change in the Index. While the volatility control applied by the Index may result in less fl uctuation in rates of return as compared to indices without volatility controls, it may also reduce the overall rate of return as compared to products not subject to volatility controls.
