Included for annual charge of .95% of the Withdrawal Base at the start of each contract year.GLWB provides an income feature through guaranteed lifetime withdrawal amounts, known as Lifetime Annual Payments (LAP)LAP is determined by the Withdrawal Base1 amount, which is a separate value that grows based on one of two options:The first option provides a 10% of premium, adjusted for withdrawals, as guaranteed fixed increase to the Withdrawal Base.The second option adds the interest earned on contract value alongside a guaranteed fixed 7.5% of premium to increase the value, adjusted for withdrawalsGuarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of Forethought Life Insurance Company and subject to compliance with benefit rules.1 Withdrawal Base is not available for death benefit or cash surrender.
4ForeIncomeTM Fixed Index Annuity How LAP worksThe LAP election is a one-time election that locks in for the duration of the contract. Withdrawal Base growth ceases upon activation.If contract value ever exceeds Withdrawal Base at any contract anniversary after activation, Withdrawal Base will receive automatic increase to match it and LAP will be recalculated.Once income is activated, a percentage of Withdrawal Base is taken as the LAP – determined based on age at activation (based on age of younger spouse for joint income).LAPs do not reduce Withdrawal Base, but do reduce contract value.If withdrawals are taken that are greater than the LAP, the Withdrawal Base and future LAP decrease.Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of Forethought Life Insurance Company and subject to compliance with benefit rules.1 Withdrawal Base is not available for death benefit or cash surrender.
