On September 25, 2020, the VP Income & Growth Fund's name changed to VP Disciplined Core Value Fund.
American Century Investments Variable Portfolio Funds (VP Funds) are a series of investment choices available exclusively through variable annuity and variable universal life products.

Those charges are disclosed in the separate account prospectus.

The value and/or returns of a portfolio will fluctuate with market and economic conditions. Different investment styles tend to shift in and out of favor depending upon market and economic conditions, as well as investor sentiment. A fund may outperform or underperform other funds that employ a different investment style. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives will be met. Dividends and yields represent past performance and there is no guarantee that they will continue to be paid.
Long-term capital growth and income by investing primarily in the stocks of companies the managers believe to be undervalued.
Employs a risk-managed, quantitative investment process designed to outperform the broad equity market over time.
Average annual total returns illustrate the annual compounded returns that would have produced the cumulative total return if the fund's performance had remained constant throughout the period indicated. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized.
For periods prior to the inception of a class, performance is for the oldest class, restated with applicable fees, if any.

The VP Funds are managed by the same management team using the same objectives, approach, and philosophy as the retail fund. The VP portfolios are managed in a manner that under normal circumstances should produce similar performance. However, it is important to note that there are additional fees and charges assessed with investments in variable insurance products, those charges are disclosed in the separate account prospectus. The fees and charges will reduce returns when compared to that of the retail fund. There is no guarantee that the management team will achieve the same or similar performance in the future.

The gross expense ratio is the fund's total annual operating costs, expressed as a percentage of the fund's average net assets for a given time period. It is gross of any fee waivers or expense reimbursement. The net expense ratio is the expense ratio after the application of any waivers or reimbursement. This is the actual ratio that investors paid during the fund's most recent fiscal year. Please see the prospectus for more information.
