Notice of Fund Changes (“Notice”) and Summary of Material Modifications for:
LNL Agents’ 401(k) Savings Plan
(the “Plan”)



Dear Plan Participant:

This Notice gives you an overview of the upcoming changes to the Plan, the timing of those changes, and the actions you may wish to consider as a result of such changes.

Effective December 19, 2023, the American Funds Growth Fund of America Class R-6 will be replaced with J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s JPMCB Large Cap Growth Fund CF-A Class. Any existing assets and/or future contribution investment elections remaining in the American Funds Growth Fund of America Class R-6 at that time will automatically be mapped (or transferred) as shown in the chart below. Any contributions or rollovers received on or after December 19, 2023 that are directed to the fund being eliminated, will be mapped as shown in the chart below. Because this mapping (or transfer) is automatic, you do not need to take any action.

If you are currently invested in the following fund
being eliminated:
Your balance and investment elections will be transferred to the new fund being added:
RGAGX
American Funds Growth Fund of America Class R-6
20261K404
JPMCB Large Cap Growth Fund CF-A Class
Prior to investing in a collective investment trust option, an investor should consider carefully the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the offeror of the collective investment trust.

What do you need to do?
Take a few minutes to review your investment portfolio. Make any changes you feel are necessary to meet your retirement savings goals. If you don’t want the investment of your existing account or future contributions to be mapped (or transferred) as indicated, you may change your investment elections and/or make a reallocation on your own by initiating a transfer prior to 4:00 p.m. ET on December 19, 2023. Note that you cannot choose to keep any investments in or transfer any investment to the fund being eliminated. To make a change, log on to your account at LincolnFinancial.com to complete your transaction online, or call the Lincoln Customer Contact Center at 800-234-3500. Customer Service Representatives are available Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET.

Please be sure to make any changes prior to 4:00 p.m. ET on December 19, 2023 if you do not want the mapping (or transfer) to occur.  Of course, you could also wait until after the automatic mapping (or transfer) occurs if you wish to exchange funds or change where your future contributions are invested.

Any transactions requested on December 19, 2023, (such as fund transfers, loans, or distribution transactions) will not be processed while the fund change is being made but will process as soon as administratively feasible once the fund change is completed.  Your account will remain fully invested during the change.

If you are also a participant in any of Lincoln’s non-qualified deferred compensation plans administered by Nolan Financial Group that utilize the same fund options as the Plan, please note that this same fund change will impact the non-qualified plans at the same time.

The below information is a Summary of Material Modifications (“SMM”) intended to notify you of important changes made to the Plan.  This SMM supplements or modifies the November 12, 2021 Summary Plan Description/Prospectus for the Plan and is subject to the terms of the plan document.  Please take the time to read this SMM and keep a copy of it with your 2021 Summary Plan Description/Prospectus for the Plan.


In addition to the fund changes described above, the following sections of the Plan’s Summary Plan Description/Prospectus have been amended as follows:

LUMP SUM DISTRIBUTIONS and PERIODIC PAYMENTS OF DISTRIBUTIONS (pages 26-27)

Effective for Plan years beginning on and after January 1, 2023, the date on which you are required to take a distribution from the Plan will be no later than the April 1st following your attainment of your “Applicable Age”.  Your “Applicable Age” is:

(i)
age 72 (or age 70½ if you were born before July 1, 1949) prior to January 1, 2023;
(ii)
age 73 if you attained age 72 after December 31, 2022 and age 73 before January 1, 2033; and
(iii)
age 75 if you attain age 74 after December 31, 2032.

Effective for Plan years beginning on and after January 1, 2024, if you die before you have started to take your required distributions from the Plan, your surviving spouse may make an election to be treated as if they were the Plan participant.  This election would allow your surviving spouse to delay taking required distributions from the Plan until the date you would have attained your Applicable Age.


FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES (pages 31-32)

Effective for Plan years beginning on and after January 1, 2023, the required 10% excise or penalty tax applicable to certain early distributed amounts that are taxable will not apply if your physician certifies that you have an illness or condition that is reasonably expected to result in your death within 84 months.
