1 You can access life insurance policy cash values through withdrawals and loans. Interest is charged on loans. In general, loans are not taxable. Withdrawals are taxable to the extent they exceed basis in the policy. If you take a loan and do not pay it back before the policy lapses or is canceled or the insured dies, this will cause immediate taxation to the extent of gain in the policy. Unpaid loans and withdrawals reduce cash values and policy benefits and can also reduce the length of the guarantee against lapse; this can cause the policy to lapse and/or have tax consequences. If a policy is a Modified Endowment Contract (MEC), distributions (including loans) are taxable to the extent of income in the policy; plus, an additional 10% federal income tax penalty may apply. Please consult your tax advisor for advice about your own situation.

About the guarantee against lapse.
Generally, the more premiums you pay, the longer the guarantee will last. Changing when and/or how often you pay premiums and taking loans or withdrawals will also affect the guarantee.
Canceling your policy.
- If you choose to cancel your policy, you may incur fees known as surrender charges.
- Surrender charges may reduce the policy’s cash value in early years. The policy’s cash surrender value is the accumulated value less the surrender charges. Other charges may include, but are not limited to: premium-based administrative charges; and monthly charges including cost of insurance.
- PruLife Index Advantage UL has a 15-year declining surrender charge.
- PruLife Founders Plus UL and PruLife Survivorship Index UL have 14-year declining surrender charges.
About how the indexed accounts work.
The potential to build cash value in the Indexed Account(s) or Plus 100 Account is based in part on the performance of the S&P 500® Index (using an index growth cap and floor) on an annual point-to-point basis based on a 100% participation rate (subject to change). Money that is placed in the Indexed Account(s) or Plus 100 Account is not a direct investment in the S&P 500® Index. PruLife Founders Plus, PruLife Index Advantage UL, and PruLife Survivorship Index UL are not variable contracts or investment contracts.
For the PruLife Advantage UL, if amounts in the Indexed accounts are withdrawn prior to the end of the one-year term, no interest will be credited on the portion withdrawn.
The Index Growth Cap is generally stated as a percentage, which is the maximum rate of interest that will be credited at the end of the one-year Plus 100 Account Segment duration, regardless of changes to the designated index. The Index Growth Cap is declared for each Plus 100 Indexed Account Segment or Index in advance of each Segment start date. The Index Growth Cap may be raised or lowered at our discretion before the segment is created, but will not be lower than the guaranteed minimum index growth cap stated in the policy. Once a Plus 100 Account Segment or Indexed Account Segment is created, its Index Growth Cap will not change. Changes are not tied to the performance of the underlying index and may be based on interest rates, market volatility, and other factors. Index Growth Caps and Floors may be different in selected states.
For Index Advantage UL, the Multiplier is the amount that the earned rate on the Indexed Account with Multiplier will be multiplied by after applying the Cap for the Indexed Account with Multiplier. The Spread is the percentage that will be deducted from the earned rate on the Uncapped Indexed Account.
The Index Growth Cap, Multiplier, and Spread are declared for each Index Segment and Indexed Account option as applicable in advance of each Index Segment Duration. The Index Growth Cap, Multiplier, and Spread are subject to change at our discretion, both up and down, but are guaranteed to never be less than 3.00% for the Cap, no less than 1.15 for the Multiplier, and no more than 30% for the Spread. Changes are not tied to the performance of the underlying index and may be based on interest rates, market volatility, and other factors. Index Growth Caps, Multiplier, Spreads, and Floors may be different in selected states.
