Annuity from Allianz.
A fixed index annuity from Allianz can be a valuable asset.

A prudent plan shouldn’t rely solely on future Social Security to pay for an individual’s retirement
years. One way to accumulate additional assets for retirement income is an annuity. The money
in an annuity has the potential to create an additional source of retirement income that can
supplement Social Security. Assets placed in an annuity can even provide a variety of income
streams. This is one reason many individuals use annuities to help them achieve their long-term
financial goals, including retirement income.

                       Consider the MasterDex X because it offers:

                        •     A bonus on premium received in the first three years 1

                              – without surrender charges – after 10 years

                         The bonus is subject to a 10-year vesting schedule. 10% of the bonus will become vested on each
                         contract anniversary until the beginning of the 11th contract year, when 100% will be vested. If you
                         surrender your contract before the 11th contract year, you will receive the amount of vested bonus
                         as part of your surrender value. Bonus annuities may include higher surrender charges, longer
                         surrender charge periods, lower caps, higher spreads, or other restrictions that are not included in
                         similar annuities that don’t offer a premium bonus feature. During the first 10 contract years, we
                         will apply a surrender charge if you partially or fully surrender your contract. The same would apply
                         if you begin annuitization, which means receiving regular income payments over a specified period
                         of time, prior to the sixth contract year (or for fewer than 10 years). These charges may result in a
                         loss of bonus, indexed interest and fixed interest, and a partial loss of principal (your premium). Any
                         amounts taken from your contract may be subject to ordinary income taxes and, if taken prior to
                         age 59½, a 10% federal tax penalty.

The following illustrations are not intended, and may not be used, to project or predict contract values. Index changes,
caps, and spreads may be higher or lower than those illustrated. The annual cap is guaranteed never to be less than 1%,
the monthly cap is guaranteed never to be less than 0.50%, and the annual spread is guaranteed never to be more than 12%.
As an Allianz MasterDex X Annuity contract owner, you do not invest directly in an index. The three years were
chosen to highlight the indexed interest rate for each crediting method, assuming Allianz MasterDex X Annuity had been
available during the years shown. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The monthly average crediting

Simple Income II Rider

Flexibility
When you are ready to begin lifetime income you have the flexibility to decide between a steady, predictable income
payment or one that has the potential to grow. Income option 1 provides a predictable payment, so you know exactly
what your income payment will be for the rest of your life.

Income option 2 offers a smaller payment up front, but has the potential to increase each year by the interest rate
credited to your allocation options in your base contract. On every contract anniversary, your maximum withdrawal
amount (income payment) will be recalculated to reflect any positive changes in the selected allocations.

With either option, your maximum income payment is a percentage of your simple withdrawal value that is based on
your age when payments begin. Your payment is guaranteed for as long as you live.

Predictable payments – Income option 1

In this hypothetical example, let’s assume “Paul,” who is 60 years old, purchases an Allianz annuity. He adds the Simple Income II Rider,
which guarantees him a simple bonus at the end of every contract year until he starts taking income payments. Paul doesn’t plan on
taking income until he retires in five years at age 65.

    Payments for the joint lives of two spouses – based on the age of the younger spouse at
    the time income payments begin

Paul is ready to start his income payments five years later at age 65 and decides to choose income option 1. Let’s assume his
simple withdrawal value is $148,000. His payment would be based on $148,000 and he would receive $7,400 (5.0%) every year
for the rest of his life.

Rose starts her income payments 10 years after she buys her annuity, at age 60. Let’s assume her payment will start at $7,520, which
is 4% of a hypothetical $188,000 simple withdrawal value. On each contract anniversary, her annual maximum income payment will
be recalculated to reflect any positive changes in her selected allocations. This means Rose’s income payment has the potential to
increase every year for the rest of her life.

The following hypothetical illustration assumes:
• The annuity contract and Simple Income II Rider were available during the time period shown and both were issued on 1/1/1979
  at the age of 50.
• The contract was held for 10 years before Rose started income payments and 100% of the money was allocated to the S&P 500
  during the time period shown.
• The monthly sum crediting method was selected with a hypothetical monthly cap of 2.5%, and no withdrawals were taken prior
  to starting lifetime income on 1/1/1989.
• These figures represent past performance of the S&P 500 index only, and may not be used to predict or project future results.
  Actual results will vary by the current simple bonus, cap and/or spread, and the indexes and crediting method chosen.

Simple Income II Rider

Additional features of the Simple Income II Rider
Withdrawals
If you need to take a withdrawal, including required minimum distributions (RMDs), you can do so according to
the terms of your base contract. Withdrawals will reduce your adjusted premium and simple withdrawal value by
the same percentage that they reduce your accumulation value. Your new simple bonus amount will be based on
your adjusted premium.

Cumulative withdrawals
Once you begin taking lifetime income payments, you can choose to take less than your maximum withdrawal
amount (income payment). We keep track of the amount that’s “left over.” The amount that is left over is called
the cumulative withdrawal value. This feature allows you to take any or all of that remainder at any time.

Should you pass away, your beneficiary will receive the cumulative withdrawal value if it is greater than the death
benefit in your base contract.

“Step-ups”
If, on any contract anniversary, your contract’s accumulation value exceeds your simple withdrawal value,
the simple withdrawal value will be “stepped up” to equal the accumulation value. Once you begin taking lifetime
income payments, if the accumulation value multiplied by your payment percentage exceeds your current
maximum withdrawal amount, your income payment automatically increases, as long as you took
the maximum withdrawal amount during the prior contract year.

Questions and answers
Can I add premium to my annuity?
If your base contract allows, you may add premium to your annuity. Your simple bonus will not be based on the
additional premium until the end of the following contract year, when the additional premium will have been in
your contract for a full contract year. You cannot add premium once you have begun lifetime income payments.

What if I want to surrender my contract?
Although your annuity may permit some penalty-free withdrawals, in order to avoid penalties you’re generally
required to leave your money in the annuity for a specified period of time, usually referred to as the surrender
charge period. If you fully surrender your annuity contract at any time, this rider will no longer be in force,
and you will receive your contract’s cash surrender value. The cash surrender value does not include any
of the simple bonus. See your annuity contract for more details.

How is the rider charge calculated for the Simple Income II Rider?
The annual cost of the rider is 0.60% of your simple withdrawal value. One-twelfth of this charge is automatically
deducted each month from your annuity’s accumulation value. The rider charge will continue for the life of
the contract, even if you have begun receiving lifetime income payments and are no longer receiving the
simple bonus.

Purchasing an annuity within a retirement plan that provides tax deferral under sections of the Internal Revenue Code
results in no additional tax benefit. An annuity should be used to fund a qualified plan based upon the annuity’s features
other than tax deferral. All annuity features, risks, limitations, and costs should be considered prior to purchasing an
annuity within a tax-qualified retirement plan.
