1 Lincoln Alliance Program Fee disclosures Lincoln Financial Group is the marketing name for Lincoln National Corporation and its affiliates. Affiliates are separately responsible for their own financial and contractual obligations.

3 In order to assist you in meeting your fiduciary responsibilities under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ( ERISA ), Lincoln Financial Group (LFG) 1 is providing disclosure to you, to the best of its knowledge, of all fees and other compensation to be received by LFG as your plan service provider. U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) regulations also permit simplified reporting on your plan s Form 5500 of certain types of compensation received by LFG with respect to your plan if certain disclosures regarding this compensation are made to you. The following is intended to meet LFG s goal of full and transparent fee disclosure and to permit simplified Form 5500 reporting in accordance with DOL rules. 2 LFG provides bundled services and is therefore disclosing fees as a bundled provider. As a bundled provider, LFG brings together several different services provided by both LFG entities and certain unaffiliated entities, and presents them to you as a single integrated package of services. Accordingly, this disclosure provides information regarding compensation received by LFG and identified unaffiliated entities in connection with this package of services. For example, many of our clients use Ibbotson Associates, Inc. (Ibbotson) and the Lincoln Ibbotson Insight Series. As you would expect, LFG pays to Ibbotson a fee for the fiduciary services they provide to you. Even though LFG is making these disclosures as a bundled provider, some of the service providers included in our package of services (including Ibbotson) may make disclosures on their own. Clients need to understand that they are not paying for these services twice. Rather, the duplicate disclosures are simply a result of each organization disclosing the fees that it receives. This disclosure is limited to compensation that is received by LFG and the other persons and entities identified herein in connection with the package of services identified herein. If any service provider, including a service provider identified in this disclosure, is providing services or receiving compensation with respect to your plan that is/are not identified in this disclosure, LFG is not responsible for the disclosure of such services or compensation, and you will need to seek such disclosure from such other service provider. In addition, some of the information presented herein regarding compensation to unaffiliated entities may have been provided to LFG by such unaffiliated entities. To the extent that this occurs, LFG is not responsible for any inaccurate information provided to LFG by such unaffiliated entities. Providers of Fiduciary Services Unaffiliated Entities. Wilmington Trust Company, Ibbotson, Yentis & Associates, Inc. (Yentis), Morningstar Associates, LLC (Morningstar) and several investment advisors, all of which are unaffiliated with LFG but provide services that are included in LFG s service package, will provide services as a fiduciary under ERISA and/or the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 ( Advisers Act ) and receive compensation for their services as described below. Wilmington Trust Company may provide ERISA fiduciary services as a discretionary trustee of plan assets invested in any of the collective trust funds if such funds are available as investment options in your plan. The collective trust funds are each managed by an investment advisor appointed by Wilmington Trust Company, who acts as an ERISA and Advisers Act fiduciary with respect to the funds that it manages. Ibbotson provides ERISA and Advisers Act fiduciary services in selecting and maintaining a recommended list of investment options for plans using the Lincoln Alliance program. For plans that have selected the LifeSpan models as a qualified default investment alternative (QDIA), Yentis provides Advisers Act and ERISA fiduciary services as manager of the accounts of those participants whose accounts are invested by default in the LifeSpan models. Morningstar provides advisory services to those plans and participants who elect to offer and use it, respectively. Finally, the investment advisors to unaffiliated registered mutual funds that are available in the Lincoln Alliance program owe a fiduciary duty to those funds in providing Advisers Act services to those funds. LFG Entities. Delaware Investments, an LFG affiliate, will provide services as a fiduciary under both ERISA and the Advisers Act in its role as manager of those collective trust funds available in the Lincoln Alliance program for which it has been appointed an investment advisor by Wilmington Trust Company. In addition, Delaware Investments owes a fiduciary duty to the Delaware managed registered mutual funds available in the Lincoln Alliance program in providing Advisers Act services to those funds. LFG affiliated companies will not provide services as an ERISA or Advisers Act fiduciary for any other purpose. 1 Lincoln Financial Group (LFG) is the marketing name for Lincoln National Corporation and its affiliates.

Any fee that is paid to an LFG affiliate or unaffiliated partner in the LFG service bundle that has a separate charge against the plan assets and any transactional fee such as a finder fee or commission must be separately disclosed. Thus, you may receive separate disclosures from some of our partners and the following chart attempts to separately list fees and services where required. The following chart lists all the fees that could be charged with respect to a plan and either describes the amount of the fee or provides a cross-reference to the document where the amount of the fee that will be charged to your plan can be found.

Fee to Wilmington Trust Company (WTC) for maintaining the collective trust funds This fee will be debited from plan assets on a quarterly basis. This fee is received by WTC. This fee is disclosed in an appendix to the participation agreement that is entered into by the plan sponsor and WTC if collective trust funds are included in the plan fund lineup. WTC can change these fees without the consent of the plan sponsor by written notice to the plan sponsor. The participation agreement shows the total fee charged by WTC with respect to each fund. For all funds except those managed by Avatar Associates, WTC retains.06% of this fee and pays the remainder to the investment advisor appointed to manage the assets of the fund. For funds managed by Avatar Associates, WTC retains.10% and pays the remainder to Avatar. Some of the collective trust funds may invest in several other mutual funds ( fund of funds ) or several exchange-traded funds (ETFs). There are fees relating to the management of the underlying mutual funds or ETFs that are in addition to the fees shown in the participation agreement. The amount of these additional fees varies depending on the investment portfolio of the collective trust fund at any given time. The approximate amounts of these additional fees are factored into the gross expense ratio shown in the service agreement. Fee for self-directed brokerage account (SDBA) service Participant-level annual fees and transaction-based fees are deducted from the accounts of participants who elect this service. Any plan-level set-up fees are included in the asset charge mentioned above. These fees are received by the SDBA provider. For most plans using the Lincoln Alliance program, the SDBA provider is TD Ameritrade, Inc. In addition, some plans use Wilmington Trust Company. The SDBA provider is identified in the trust or custodial agreement between the plan and Wilmington Trust Company. Participant-level fees are disclosed in the SDBA provider application that is completed by the participant to set up the participant s self-directed brokerage account. Any plan-level set-up fees are not separately disclosed but are included in the asset charge mentioned above. Fee to investment advisors for management of collective trust funds This fee is debited from plan assets on a quarterly basis. This fee is included in the fee charged by WTC described immediately above and should not be counted twice. This fee is received by the investment advisor who is appointed to manage the collective trust fund. Where Delaware Investments is the appointed advisor, LFG receives this fee. The amount of the fee is (1) the amount of the fee shown in an appendix to the participation agreement that is entered into by the plan sponsor and WTC, as described above, minus (2).06% or.10%, as applicable. Sub-transfer agency (Sub-TA) fees This fee is received from the mutual funds that are the underlying investments. This fee is included in the calculation of (i.e., reduces) the mutual fund share price. This fee does not apply to most of the funds included in the Lincoln Alliance program investment choices. The Lincoln Alliance program investments are generally the least expensive share class available (i.e., R5 share class or Institutional share class or equivalent). However, some fund companies provide modest levels of revenue sharing even on their low cost Institutional share class. This fee is received by LFG and is used to offset or reduce the administrative and recordkeeping fees that LFG charges. This is accomplished by lowering your asset charge by the expected amount of the sub-transfer agency fees assumed to be received by LFG over the life of the contract. This fee/charge is disclosed in the service agreement as well as the Lincoln Alliance program proposal. This fee can be changed by the mutual fund without your consent; however, you will be notified annually of any such changes. 4

8 Fee/Compensation Who pays for this fee and how is this fee collected/received? Who receives this fee? Where is this fee disclosed? Distribution Expense The distribution expense is paid for out of LFG s general assets. LFG pays this fee to its sales/ wholesaling force. Thus, the plan sponsor should understand that this fee is not in addition to the other disclosed LFG fees and should not be counted twice. The distribution expense is used by LFG to pay wholesalers/sales representatives (LFG employees) who provide sales support and sales assistance. The distribution expense is not disclosed in a separate document and is described as follows: LFG generally pays a distribution expense of approximately.60% on year one deposits in the Lincoln Alliance program and.02% on all Lincoln Alliance program assets in year 1 and subsequent years for its sales and wholesaling services. LFG pays its wholesalers for sales support and sales assistance. A portion of a wholesaler s compensation for these services is based on meeting sales goals for a year, including sales of the Lincoln Alliance program. If a typical wholesaler meets his or her sales goal, he or she would receive approximately $30,000 to $60,000 in additional compensation above his or her base compensation. LFG wholesalers that meet certain sales goals can earn additional compensation in the form of trips, bonuses or other prizes. Gross Dealer Concession (GDC) The GDC is the amount paid by LFG on behalf of the representative that sold the Lincoln Alliance program to the plan. As mentioned above, this payment is included in the asset charge. The GDC fee is paid for out of LFG s general assets. Thus, the plan sponsor should understand that this fee is not in addition to the other LFG fees already disclosed and should not be counted twice. The GDC is received by the representative s broker-dealer. The broker-dealer could be one of LFG s affiliated broker-dealers, Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation (LFA) or Lincoln Financial Securities Corporation (LFS), or could be a broker-dealer that is not affiliated with LFG. In the case of LFG s affiliated broker-dealers, part of the GDC is used to pay the representative s compensation (and in some cases, to pay compensation to certain other individuals involved in the sale) and part of the GDC is retained by the representative s broker-dealer. The compensation paid to the representative can vary depending on the representative s grid rate that is applied by the broker-dealer. In the case of an unaffiliated brokerdealer, the GDC is divided up in accordance with that broker-dealer s policy. You will need to obtain this information from that broker-dealer. The GDC/payment to the sales representative is disclosed in the service agreement. In general, the amount shown there is the amount paid to your sales representative s broker-dealer. In some cases, there may be more than one sales representative involved in the sale of a Lincoln Alliance program. If this is the case with your plan, the service agreement and/or the initial letter of intent signed by you (indicating your intention to use the Lincoln Alliance program for your plan) will specify how much of the GDC will be credited to each sales representative. This will be denoted as a percentage split. If your representative is registered with an LFG affiliated broker-dealer, you will receive a separate disclosure with details regarding the amount of the GDC that is paid to the representative and the amount that is retained by the broker-dealer. 6

10 Fee/Compensation Who pays for this fee and how Who receives is this fee collected/received? this fee? Where is this fee disclosed? Earnings on Lincoln s Stable Value or Fixed Annuity Option This income is earned on plan assets that are invested in the stable value or fixed annuity option. This income is received by LFG. LFG pays investors in this account a credited interest rate. The interest rate credited is earmarked to an external indexed benchmark. The external index is based on the Barclays Capital Intermediate Government/Corporate Index. It has a minimum guarantee of 1.75% (3% in New York). This interest rate is disclosed in your annuity contract. LFG attempts to invest the assets in this account in financial instruments that pay LFG more than the interest that it pays to investors. This spread between what the financial instruments earn and what LFG pays to investors, minus the cost of capital required for the interest guarantees, the cost to manage the fund, recordkeeping expenses and other overhead, is income to LFG. Some of this income is used to pay for the bundle of services provided to your plan. Therefore, the larger the spread is (the lower the credited interest rate), the less income LFG needs from other sources, such as the asset charge mentioned above, to pay for plan services. The credited interest rate and resulting spread is negotiated at the time of the sale of the Lincoln Alliance program to the plan. If the credited interest rate is set at a higher rate, the asset charge will generally be higher. Conversely, if the credited interest rate is set at a lower rate, the asset charge will generally be lower. Market Value Adjustment (MVA) The MVA is deducted from the value of the stable value or fixed annuity option for certain account value withdrawals or surrender of the contract. The MVA is received by LFG. The MVA formula is disclosed in the group annuity contract issued to the plan sponsor and disclosed as a specific dollar amount as of a specific date, as part of the plan sponsor s contract surrender. 8

11 Conflicts of interest disclosures: LFG has identified the following (1) relationships that could create a possible conflict of interest by affecting the compensation that we or an affiliate can receive based on possible plan transactions, (2) conflicts where LFG may have an interest or any material financial, referral or other relationship with another provider, vendor, investment manager or other entity and (3) any relationship where LFG may be able to affect its own revenue or the revenue to an affiliate without the prior approval or direct knowledge of the plan fiduciary. The following have been identified as providing potential conflicts of interest: 1 Delaware Investments is the marketing name for Delaware Management Holdings, Inc. and its affiliates. Delaware Management Holdings, Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lincoln National Corporation and a member of Lincoln Financial Group. Some of the registered mutual funds and collective trust funds are managed by Delaware Investments. With respect to these investment options, Delaware Investments (and therefore LFG) earns investment management/advisory fees that it does not earn with respect to non-delaware investment options. Therefore, LFG s revenue is increased by increased investment in these investment options. Delaware Investment s investment management and investment advisory fees are disclosed in the service agreement. 2 LFG offers its stable value fund as one of the investment options in the Lincoln Alliance program. The stable value fund is part of LFG s general account and LFG earns income to the extent that the general account s investment return exceeds what LFG pays to stable value fund investors and other general account expenses. To the extent that this spread is positive, LFG s revenue is increased by increased investment in the stable value fund 3 Your sales representative receives compensation from LFG based on the sale of the Lincoln Alliance program, which may affect his or her incentives to sell this program to you. If your sales representative is a registered representative of an LFG affiliated broker-dealer, he or she is subject to the supervision of that broker-dealer. With the exception of this limited supervisory role, LFG is not in a position to exercise any control over your representative s decisions regarding the financial products that he or she may recommend to clients. 4 LFG receives a fee equal to.15% for any assets that are part of Managed by Morningstar, a service available under the Morningstar Retirement Manager SM advisory program. These fees are used to offset the administration cost and overhead LFG incurs as part of maintaining this program.
