* Variable universal life insurance is subject to insurance related charges and fees including annual mortality, administrative expense and declining deferred surrender charges. Purchasers of variable insurance contracts should consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the contract and underlying investment options before investing. Contact a Farmers Insurance and Financial Services Agent for a prospectus that contains this and other important information; read it carefully before purchasing.
Past performance of any investment does not guarantee future results; investment returns will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed they may be worth more or less than the original amount invested. Withdrawals and surrenders are at net asset value, may affect the contract's performance and/or death benefit amount, and a taxable gain may be recognized. Please consult your tax preparer or CPA.
