Lincoln Level Advantage® indexed variable annuity is a long-term investment product designed for retirement purposes. There are no explicit fees associated with the indexed-linked account options available. There are associated fees with the variable annuity subaccounts, which include a product charge, and administrative fees.

Annuities are subject to market risk including loss of principal. Withdrawals are subject to ordinary income tax treatment and, if taken prior to age 591⁄2 in nonqualified contracts, may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax.

Indexed-linked variable annuity products are complex insurance and investment vehicles. Please reference the prospectus for information about the levels of protection available and other important product information.

The risk of loss occurs each time you move into a new indexed account after the end of an indexed term. The protection level option selected in the indexed account helps protect you from some downside risk. If the negative return is in excess of the protection level selected, there is a risk of loss of principal. Protection levels that vary based on the index and term selected are subject to change and may not be available with every option. Please see the prospectus for details.

Investors are advised to consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the annuity and its underlying investment options carefully before investing. The applicable prospectuses for the variable annuity and its underlying investment options contain this and other important information. Please call 8888682583 for free prospectuses. Read them carefully before investing or sending money. Products and features are subject to state availability.
