"IMPORTANT POLICY OWNER NOTICE:

You should consider requesting more detailed information about your policy to understand how it may perform in the future.  You should not consider replacement of your policy or make changes in your coverage without requesting a current illustration.  You may annually request, without charge, such an illustration by calling ______ (insurer's phone number), writing to ______ (insurer's name) at ______ (insurer's address) or contacting your agent.  If you do not receive a current illustration of your policy within thirty days from your request, you should contact your state insurance department.".
