35 Disclosures Group variable annuity contracts are issued by AUL and registered group variable annuity contracts are distributed by OneAmerica Securities, Inc., Member FINRA, SIPC, a Registered Investment Advisor, 433 N. Capitol Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204, , which is a wholly owned subsidiary of AUL. Tax qualified retirement plans from American United Life Insurance Company (AUL) are funded by an AUL group annuity contract. While a participant in an annuity contract may benefit from additional investment and annuity related benefits under the annuity contract, any tax deferral is provided by the plan and not the annuity contract. Variable products are sold by prospectus. Both the product prospectus and underlying fund prospectuses can be obtained from your investment professional or by writing to 433 N. Capitol Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204, Before investing, carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.

Neither OneAmerica Securities, Inc. nor its representatives provide tax or legal advice. For answers to your specific questions please consult a qualified attorney or tax advisor.
36 Disclosures Any investment involves risk and there is no assurance that the investment objective of any fund will be achieved. Before investing, understand that variable annuities are subject to market risk, including possible loss of principal. Investing may involve market risk, including possible loss of principal. Depending on the income options chosen, how long you live, and the performance of the investment portfolios selected, you could get back less than invested. Target Date Funds are designed for people who plan to retire during or near a specific year. These funds use a strategy that reallocates equity exposure to a higher percentage of fixed investments; the funds will shift assets from equities to fixed-income investments over time. As a result, the funds become more conservative over time as you approach retirement. It s important to remember that no strategy can assure a profit or prevent a loss in a declining market and the principal value of the Target Date Funds is not guaranteed at any time, including the target date. Target Date Funds are designed to provide diversification and asset allocation across several types of investments and asset classes, primarily by investing in underlying funds. Therefore, in addition to the expenses of the Target Date Funds, an investor is indirectly paying a proportionate share of the applicable fees and expenses of the underlying funds. The funds are not guaranteed at any point and may lose value.
37 Disclosures My OneCheck Online MasteryPOINT s My OneCheck Online Retirement Income Strategy (RIS) tool is a sophisticated retirement planning tool designed to provide you with valuable help in reaching your retirement goals. However, My OneCheck Online s forecasts and projections are derived from mathematical modeling techniques of the economic and financial markets that may or may not reflect actual conditions and events. The asset projections and suggestions of asset allocation strategies furnished through the My OneCheck Online RIS tool are based on information and assumptions you provide about your current financial, personal, family status, and expected returns as well the historical performance of various asset categories available within your plan. While My OneCheck Online can provide you with insights on which investment asset categories offered by your Plan appear to best fit your retirement needs, you are solely responsible for using your own best judgment to choose the investments that are most suitable for you. Methodology - The My OneCheck Online RIS tool generates retirement wealth and retirement income projections based on current account balances, current salary, retirement age, life expectancy, current savings rates and rate of return assumptions entered by the participant. The risk questionnaire provides a series of questions that are used to determine the user s tolerance for risk. Base on his/her answers to the questions, the tool assigns each user a conservative, moderate, or aggressive risk profile. The tool then displays a suggested mix of assets that may be appropriate for the user s time horizon to retirement and risk profile.
38 Disclosures My OneCheck Online Limitations and key assumptions There can be no assurance that any of the suggestions for modification of participant savings level, participant retirement age, participant retirement goal, or participant risk level will generate any specific level of retirement date wealth or income in retirement. These illustrations hypothetical and are based on the information and variables you provide. Investing involves risk including the potential for loss of principal. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Your actual investment experience will vary. Any investment involves risk and there is no assurance that the investment objective of any investment option will be achieved. Before investing, understand that your investments are subject to market risk, including possible loss of principal. The use of diversification and asset allocation as part of an overall investment strategy does not assure a profit, or protect against loss in a declining market. Monthly 401(k) retirement plan contributions are made at the end of each month prior to retirement at the specified rate you selected. Your 401(k) retirement plan assets grow at the pre- and post-retirement rates of return you select. Your salary growth before retirement is calculated at an annual rate of 3%. Contributions into the Plan before retirement will also grow at the same rate. Income growth after retirement is set to the inflation rate.
39 Disclosures My OneCheck Online After retirement, your growth-adjusted salary is withdrawn from your 401(k) retirement plan balance each month. This amount is indicated as withdrawn before investment growth is applied for the month. Monthly compounding is applied to rates of return and inflation. These values are applied at the rate you select, divided by 12 for growth of 401(k) retirement plan balances. Social Security is calculated based on your current salary. An earnings base for up to 35 working years prior to retirement date is calculated. Your current Social Security benefits are calculated from your assumed earnings base and that of your spouse (whether non-working spouse or working spouse if his/her age and salary are specified). A 2.5% annual growth factor is applied to your Social Security benefits after retirement. The calculated benefit is added to your 401(k) retirement plan balance at the end of each month during retirement. Benefits are reduced for early retirement and increased for late retirement according to current Social Security regulations. If you are married and do not explicitly exclude the spouse Social Security benefit, a spousal benefit equal to one half of your benefit will be computed and added to your balance.
40 Disclosures My OneCheck Online If you retire before your normal retirement age (65, 66, or 67 depending on your age), your Social Security benefit will be reduced by the standard reduction formula. If you retire before age 62, your benefit may be reduced even further. The program does not consider your salary and Social Security contribution history. As a result, your computed benefit when you retire early may be less than your actual benefit. Contact the Social Security Administration for a more accurate benefit estimate. Your federal tax rate is calculated based upon your current salary (including spouse salary, if entered) and assumes only the standard deduction. State taxes are not considered in the analysis. Other risks and limitations MasteryPOINT My OneCheck Online cannot independently monitor, review, or update the recommendations or projections you receive from us, nor does it have the capability to monitor or review the investment decisions you make based on our recommendations or projections. Because MasteryPOINT My OneCheck Online s utility depends on the completeness, accuracy and timeliness of the information you provide, you are solely responsible for reviewing and updating information within MasteryPOINT My OneCheck Online. You understand that you must provide complete and accurate information when requested by MasteryPOINT My OneCheck Online in order to get meaningful results from it.
41 Disclosures My OneCheck Online IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by this RIS tool regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investments results and are not guaranteed. RIS does not evaluate every possible investment or retirement strategy you could use, particularly when considering investments outside of your employer sponsored pension plan. As a result, the recommendations of RIS may not have considered investments or strategies that would produce similar or superior results. Additionally, the results provided by RIS may vary with each use and over time depending on the assumptions you enter.
