Non-Standardized Performance reflects hypothetical performance from the inception date of the underlying fund (including periods predating inception in the separate account) and is computed using hypothetical annuity unit values based on the underlying funds' performance (which includes total annual fund operations expenses) less Separate Account Annual Expenses.

Standardized Performance reflects a hypothetical $1,000 investment and includes deductions for Separate Account Annual Expenses (including Mortality & Expense Risk Charges, and Administrative Charges), Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (including Management, 12b-1, and other fees), Distribution Charges, the Annual Maintenance Fee, and all applicable Sales Charges.

Adjusted Non-Standardized reflects hypothetical performance from the inception date of the underlying fund (including periods predating inception in the separate account) and is computed using hypothetical annuity unit values based on the underlying funds' performance (which includes total annual fund operation expenses), less Separate Account Annual Expenses (including Mortality & Expense Risk Charges, and Administrative Charges), Distribution Charges, the Annual Maintenance Fee, and all applicable Sales Charges. Adjusted Non-Standardized performance is calculated on a monthly basis whereas, standardized performance is calculated on a quarterly basis. (See Standardized Performance.)

Footnotes

Since Inception returns are cumulative for funds in existence less than 1 year.

yYield figures would be lower if optional riders are elected. Yield is generated monthly; rate is accurate as of date noted.

Underlying Fund Notes

  1. An investment in the money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share (unit), it is possible to lose money by investing in the fund.
  2. For periods after Class 2 inception on 1/6/99, the funds' Class 2 performance reflects an additional 12b-1 fee expense, which also affects all future performance.
  3. For periods after Class 2 inception on 4/30/97, the funds' Class 2 performance reflects an additional 12b-1 fee expense, which also affects all future performance.
  4. For periods after Class 2 inception on 5/1/97, the funds' Class 2 performance reflects an additional 12b-1 fee expense, which also affects all future performance.
  5. Investments in foreign securities may involve different and additional risks associated with foreign currencies, investment disclosure, accounting, securities regulation, commissions, taxes, political or social instability, war, or expropriation.
  6. Mid cap investing generally have higher risk and return characteristics than large-company stocks.
  7. MFS Growth Series (formerly MFS Emerging Growth Series).
  8. A portion of the fund may be invested in foreign securities, and subject to the associated risks. Please see a prospectus for the current percentage.
  9. Emerging markets may involve similar but greater risks than foreign investing due to smaller size and lesser liquidity.
  10. A portion of the fund may be invested in emerging markets, and subject to the associated risks. Please see a prospectus for the current percentage.
  11. The fund may invest in small and mid-cap companies. Small company, and to a lesser extent, mid-cap investing involves higher risks than large company investing.
  12. Small company investing generally involves higher risk and return characteristics than large-company stocks.
  13. Investments in companies involved in mergers, liquidations, reorganizations, or distressed bankruptcy may involve higher credit and other risks.
  14. High-yield securities, or "junk bonds", are rated lower than investment-grade bonds because there is a greater possibility that the issuer may be unable to make interest and principal payments on those securities.
  15. Asset Allocation does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment loss. Before investing, you should carefully read the applicable volatility disclosures for each of the underlying funds, which can be found in the current prospectus.
  16. As this fund focuses its investment in relatively fewer securities, the fund may be subject to greater risks due to the larger positions taken in each security.
  17. The fund's investments are focused in one sector or state. This means that the fund may have greater market fluctuation and price volatility than a fund that is less focused. Financial, business and economic factors may have a greater impact on a fund of this kind than on a broadly diversified fund. Similarly, because the fund is non-diversified and therefore may take larger positions in individual issuers than other mutual funds, it is subject to greater financial risk than a fund that maintains a more broadly diversified portfolio.
  18. The Fund is subject to both credit and interest rate risk. The fund's share price and yield will be affected by interest rate movements, with bond prices generally moving in the opposite direction from interest rates. Credit risk refers to the bond issuers ability to make timely payments of principal and interest.
  19. U.S Treasury Bonds are backed by the U.S. government and are guaranteed as to the timely payment of principal and interest. This guarantee does not apply to the value of fund shares.
  20. The fund may use derivatives. These investment strategies may be riskier than other investment strategies and may result in greater volatility, particularly during periods of market decline.
  21. Operating expenses are estimates based on Class 1 expenses for the most recent fiscal year, ending December 31st, except for 12b-1 fees which are based on the Class 2 maximum contractual amounts.

  42. The Fund is subject to interest-rate risk (the risk that the value of an investment decreases when interest rates rise) and credit risk (the risk that the issuing company of a security is unable to pay interest and principal when due) and call risk (the risk that an investment may be redeemed early). These risks also apply to the Fund's investments in U.S. government securities, which may not be guaranteed by the U.S. government.
  43. Investments in derivatives can be volatile. Potential risks include currency risk, leverage risk (the risk that small market movements may result in large changes in the value of an investment), liquidity risk, index risk, pricing risk, and counterparty risk (the risk that the counterparty may be unwilling or unable to honor its obligations).
  44. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to interest-rate risk, credit risk, prepayment risk, extension risk, and the risk that an investment's value may be reduced or become worthless if it receives interest or income payments only after other investments in the same pool.
