 Depending on your state of residency, some bonds may be excempt from state and local taxes; however, interest may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax. Bonds are subject to interest rate risk. When
 interest rates rise bond price fall; generaly the longer a bond’s maturity, the more sensitive it is to this risk. Bonds may also be subject to call risk. which allows the insurer to retain the right to redeem the debt, fully or
 partially, before the scheduled maturity date. Proceeds from sales prior to maturity may be more or less than originally invested due to changes in market conditions or changes in the credit quality of the issuer.
