1 The stable value investment option is a guaranteed separate account group annuity contract issued by GWL&A (the "Contract"). The Contract guarantees principal and credited interest for eligible participant-initiated withdrawals and transfers. Any guarantees are subject to the terms and conditions of the contract and the claims-paying ability of the insurer. Guaranteed separate account products have interest rate, inflation and credit risks associated with the underlying assets owned by the separate account. Depending on the terms of the Contract, there are also investment risks associated with certain plan sponsor actions, including, but not limited to, termination of the Contract, mass layoffs or plan termination that could result in payment of proceeds to the plan sponsor of the lesser of the market value of the Contract and principal plus credited interest. The version of the fund as described is not intended to be sold in New York.
