Free Withdrawals
During the surrender charge period, 10% of the accumulation value is available per contract year. This partial surrender can be taken without a Market Value Adjustment (MVA) or surrender charge. If the withdrawal takes the accumulation value below $5,000, it may be treated as a full surrender. 

Market Value Adjustment (MVA)
An MVA and a surrender charge will apply if you access more than the 10% free withdrawal before the end of the initial interest rate guarantee period. The MVA is a positive or negative adjustment based on the current interest rate environment at the time of surrender. The MVA does not apply to withdrawals after the surrender charge period, 10% free withdrawals, the death benefit, or when the contract is annuitized.
