Variable life insurance is a complex vehicle that is subject to market risk, including the potential loss of principal invested.

Read the prospectus carefully before you invest.
Variable universal life insurance is permanent life insurance that offers protection and an opportunity to build cash values. You will incur mortality and expense fees and subaccount expenses, and you may also incur optional rider expenses, surrender charges, and policy charges. RiverSource variable universal life offers a broad range of carefully selected investment choices, plus fixed account options.
A fund underlying your policy in which a subaccount invests may have a name, portfolio manager, objectives, strategies and characteristics that are the same or substantially similar to those of a publicly traded retail mutual fund. Despite these similarities, an underlying fund is not the same as any publicly traded retail mutual fund. Each underlying fund will have its own unique portfolio holdings, fees, operating expenses and operating results. The results of each underlying fund may differ significantly from any publicly traded retail mutual fund.
It is possible that coverage will terminate when either no premiums are paid following the initial premium, or subsequent premiums are insufficient to continue coverage.
Accessing policy cash value through loans and surrenders may cause a permanent reduction of policy cash values and death benefit and negate any guarantees against lapse. Surrender charges may apply to the policy and loans may be subject to interest charges. Although loans are generally not taxable, there may be tax consequences if the policy lapses, or is surrendered or exchanged with an outstanding loan. Taxable income could exceed the amount of proceeds actually available. Surrenders are generally taxable to the extent they exceed the remaining investment in the policy. If the policy is a modified endowment contract (MEC), pre-death distributions, including loans from the policy, are taxed on an income-first basis, and there may be a 10% federal income tax penalty for distributions of earnings prior to age 59-1/2.
