Ameritas Fixed Account Rate 3.000%
Initial rates guaranteed from policy date until policy anniversary. Thereafter, all amounts will earn the interest rate declared in the month of the last policy anniversary.


* 10-year figure
** Returns are cumulative, not average annual
*** Total annual fund operating expense ratio gross of any expense reimbursements or fee waivers. Note, however, that performance reflected in the chart is based on fund operating expense ratios that are net of any expense reimbursement or fee waiver. See the fund's prospectus for information concerning any reimbursements, waivers, or permitted recovery of same. The performance of an investment option with an applicable expense reimbursement or fee waiver would be lower without such waiver or reimbursement, and the performance of an investment option subject to recovery of a previous reimbursement or waiver would be higher without such recovery of reimbursement or waiver.

Non-standardized Performance Data
THE PERFORMANCE DATA QUOTED REPRESENTS PAST PERFORMANCE AND IS NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Some portfolio advisors have agreed to limit their expenses; without these limits, performance would have been lower.

This contract does not have surrender charges.

Non-standardized average annual total return for a specific period is calculated by taking a hypothetical investment in a subaccount on the first day of the period ("initial investment"), and computing the ending redeemable value ("redeemable value") of that investment at the end of the period. The redeemable value is then divided by the initial investment and expressed as a percentage. Non-standardized performance returns are then annualized and reflect charges levied upon contract separate account assets only. Thus, like standardized performance returns, the non-standardized returns reflect fund company expenses, the current contract mortality and expense risk charge of 1.30% (max. 2.00%), and the current percentage administrative expense charge of 0.25% (max. 0.25%). Unlike standardized total returns, the non-standardized returns do not reflect any withdrawal charges, any contract fee or other charges not levied solely upon the separate account. For these reasons, non-standardized total returns for a subaccount are usually higher than standardized total returns for a subaccount. See the prospectus for detailed information about contract charges, including maximum charges and fund expenses.

Standardized performance information reflects past performance from the inclusion date of the underlying subaccount into the applicable separate account (the "subaccount inception date"). All non-standardized performance information reflects hypothetical past performance that may include performance that predates the offering of the fund in the Ameritas subaccount (the "inception date" of the underlying fund). The performance of a subaccount within a contract may differ from the performance of a subaccount within the applicable separate account because the contract has not been in existence for the life of the separate account.

Please Note: The following footnotes may not apply to all products.

Risks of Certain Kinds of Portfolios
Investment options are subject to market risk, which is the possibility that the market values of securities owned by the portfolio will decline and that the value of portfolio shares may therefore be less than what you paid for them. Accordingly, you can lose money investing in any investment option. Please be aware that some portfolios are subject to additional risks, which may include those listed below. More information about the specific risks involved can be found in each such portfolio's prospectus and by clicking on the fund portfolio name, above. The prospectuses for all of the portfolios available through the contract may be downloaded from this website, or contact us to send you a free copy.

Money Market Risk. Money market investment options are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other governmental agency. Although the portfolio seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per unit, it is possible to lose money by investing in this portfolio.

Overseas/emerging market, sector, and high income and small cap portfolios involve additional risk than may exist in portfolios investing in larger, more established or diversified companies in established countries.

High Yield Risk. Investment options that may invest up to 100% of net assets in lower rated bonds, commonly known as "junk bonds," entail greater risk than those portfolios that invest in higher rated securities.

International/Global/Emerging Markets Risk. International and global investment options involve risks associated with changes in currency values, economic, political and social uncertainty and market price swings. International and global portfolios may exhibit greater volatility of returns in the short-term. Risks that may be associated with investments in emerging markets include illiquidity and volatility.

Leveraged Risk. Investment options that borrow money to leverage involve more risk than portfolios that do not borrow money because the cost of borrowing money could exceed the returns for securities purchased or the securities purchased may go down in value.

Nondiversified Risk. Investment options that often invest in a more limited number of issuers involve more risk than portfolios that invest in a larger number of issuers because changes in the financial condition or market value of a single issuer may cause great volatility.

Sector Concentration Risk. Investment options that are at times more heavily invested in certain economic sectors may have more volatile performance than that of more broad-based portfolios.

Small Company Risk. Small company stocks, as a whole, may experience larger price fluctuations than large company stocks or other types of investments. Small companies tend to have shorter operating histories and may have less experienced management.

Volatility Managed Funds Risk. Volatility managed funds seek to stabilize the volatility of a portfolio to a predetermined target level. Unlike other investment options, these funds may not perform as well in a rising market but are designed to provide protection in a declining market. Losses are still possible. See prospectus for complete details.
