Important Risk Considerations

You could lose money by investing in this investment option. Although the money market fund in which your investment option invests (the “underlying fund”) seeks to preserve its value at $1.00 per share, the underlying fund cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in this investment option is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The underlying fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the underlying fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the underlying fund at any time.

It may be difficult to value, and it may not be possible to sell, certain investments, types of investments, and/or investments in certain segments of the market, and the fund may have to sell certain of these investments at a price or time that is not advantageous in order to meet redemptions or other cash needs.

The fund's performance could be more volatile than the performance of more diversified funds.

    Important Performance Information

    Performance results reflect any applicable expense subsidies and waivers in effect during the periods shown. Without such subsidies and waivers the portfolios' performance results would be less favorable. All results assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. The performance is as of the date shown; it may not include the entire investment portfolio and is subject to change.

    The returns for the portfolio shown do not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with variable products, such as mortality and expense risk charges, separate account charges, and sales charges imposed by insurance company separate accounts. Such expenses would reduce the overall returns shown. Please refer to the variable product's annual report for performance that reflects the deduction of the fees and charges imposed by insurance company separate accounts.

    Withdrawals of earnings and other taxable amounts are subject to income tax and, if made prior to age 59 ½, may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax penalty. Early withdrawals reduce the death benefit.

    Prior to January 1, 2008, the MFS® Variable Insurance Trust II portfolios were formerly known as the MFS®Sun Life Series Trusts.

    Performance information prior to April 29, 2016, reflects time periods when the fund was not considered a U.S. Government money market fund and had different investment policies and strategies. The fund's investment policies and strategies changed effective April 29, 2016.

    Sales Charges

    Initial Class shares have no sales charge.

    No representation is made, and no assurance can be given, that any investment's results will be comparable to the investment results of any other product with similar investment objectives and policies, including products with the same investment professional or manager. Differences in portfolio size, investments held, contract and portfolio expenses, and other factors can be expected to affect performance.

    A Word About Variable Products

    Issued by insurance companies, variable annuity and variable life insurance contracts allow investors to accumulate money on a tax deferred basis for long-term financial goals. Mortality and expense charges (which compensate the insurance company for insurance risks it assumes under the contract), surrender charges (typically levied if a contract holder cancels it within a certain period following initial purchase), and an annual maintenance charge are among the fees typically associated with these types of variable products.
    Also keep in mind that any income guarantees are subject to the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company, and that contract owners have options when a contract's payout phase begins. Generally, investors may take their money in a lump sum, make discretionary or systematic distributions, or they can annuitize.
    Please refer investors to your variable annuity or life insurance contract as well as the underlying fund prospectus(es) for more
    detailed information and other important considerations, which should be read carefully before investing.
