The average annual total returns reflect the reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains, and the deduction of investment management fees, expenses, as well as contract’s specific Mortality and Expense Risk Charge. The returns do not reflect other life insurance policy charges (sales, administration, and actual cost of insurance) nor any applicable surrender or lapse charges, which would significantly lower the stated returns. You may obtain a personalized illustration, from your licensed financial professional, which reflects the cost of your policy's insurance protection.

The yield quotation more closely reflects the current earnings of the fund than the total return quotation.
The table above shows the historical performance of the subaccounts of Pruco Life’s Variable Universal Account, which was established, April 17, 1989. The performance in this table assumes that the subaccount was available from inception of the separate account that supports your variable life policy or, in cases where the subaccount was created after the separate account, from inception date of the subaccount. Performance may be hypothetical for periods prior to when the subaccount was added to the separate account, when indicated by a footnote.
PLEASE REVIEW THIS MATERIAL WITH A CURRENT VARIABLE PRODUCT PROSPECTUS, PRODUCT MATERIAL (product brochure or illustration).
Investors should consider the contract and the underlying portfolios' investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before investing. The contract's prospectus and the underlying portfolio prospectus contain information relating to investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses as well as other important information. You should read the prospectuses carefully before investing.
An investment in the Prudential Series Fund Government Money Market Portfolio is neither insured nor guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the Portfolio seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $10.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Portfolio. The yield quotation more closely reflects the current earnings of the Money Market Portfolio than the total return quotation.
Investing in a particular sector increases vulnerability to any single economic, political, or regulatory developments. Small cap stocks may be subject to more erratic movements than large cap stocks; foreign securities are subject to currency fluctuation and political uncertainty. Fixed income investments are subject to interest rate risks, and their value will decline as interest rates rise. These risks may result in greater share price volatility.
With respect to the SP Portfolios of The Prudential Series Fund, the Portfolio's investment manager (Prudential Investments LLC) is absorbing a portion of the expenses of certain portfolios. That expense absorption may be discontinued at any time. Absent such expense absorption, the performance quoted would be lower. Performance returns without the expense absorption are available without charge upon request from your variable life and variable annuity customer service call centers.
Life insurance policies contain exclusions, limitations, reductions of benefits, and terms for keeping them in force. For cost and complete details for coverage, contact your licensed financial professional or refer to the prospectus.
The Prudential Series Fund (PSF) and Advanced Series Trust (AST) investment portfolios are available to the public only through variable life and variable annuity contracts. The performance of these portfolios is not related to that of any other retail mutual funds, despite any similarities in their names, investment objectives or policies.
