The Employee agrees to indemnify and hold the Employer and National Benefit Services, LLC (NBS) harmless against any and all actions, claims, and
demands that may arise from the purchase of annuities or custodial accounts in this 403(b) and/or 457(b) Plan. The Employee acknowledges that
neither the Employer nor NBS have made representation to the Employee regarding the advisability, appropriateness, or tax consequences of the
purchase of the annuity and/or custodial accounts. The Employee agrees that neither the Employer nor NBS shall have any liability for any and all
losses suffered by the Employee with regard to his/her selection of the annuity and/or custodial account; its terms; the selection of the insurance
company or regulated investment company; the solvency of, operation of, or benefits provided by said insurance company or regulated investment
company; or his/her selection and purchase of shares of regulated investment companies.
The Employer reserves the right to alter terms of this Agreement as required to facilitate program compliance with state and federal law.
The Employer does not choose the annuity contract or custodial account in which the Employee's contributions are invested.
The Employee is responsible for setting up and signing the legal documents to establish the annuity contract or custodial account.
In order for the Employee to receive the expected tax results, the annuity contract or custodial account established must meet the requirements of
Section 403(b) and/or 457(b) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is solely the Employee’s responsibility to establish the proper type of contract or account
for this purpose.
The Employee is responsible for naming a death beneficiary under the annuity contract or custodial account. This is normally done at the time the
contract or account is established, although the designation should be reviewed from time to time.
The Employee is responsible for investment decisions, distributions and any other transactions with the insurance company or investment company
and shall have total responsibility for all distributions and any resulting tax consequences. All rights under the contract or account are enforceable
solely by the Employee, the Employee’s beneficiary, or the Employee’s authorized representative.
The insurance or investment company may be required to receive approval from the Employer or National Benefit Services, LLC, prior to executing
certain transactions including loans, hardships, distributions, or transfers (as permitted by the Plan).
The Employee understands that information contained in this Agreement and other non-public information may be shared with the Employer's
designated third-party administrator in conjunction with the operation of the 403(b) and/or 457(b) Plan.
