This filing is being made under the Securities Act of 1933 to register $152,341,977 of interests in market value adjusted annuity contracts. The interests being registered herein are carried over, as unsold securities, from an existing Form S-3 registration statement of the same issuer (333-220569) filed on September 22, 2017.

This Registration Statement contains a combined prospectus under Rule 429 under the Securities Act of 1933 which relates to the Form S-3 registration statement (File No. 333-220569), filed on September 22, 2017, by Allstate Life Insurance Company. Upon effectiveness, this Registration Statement will also act as a post-effective amendment to such earlier registration statement.
Registrant hereby amends this Registration Statement on such date or dates as may be necessary to delay its effective date until the Registrant shall file a further amendment which specifically states that this Registration Statement shall thereafter become effective in accordance with Section 8(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 or until the Registration Statement shall become effective on such date as the Commission, acting pursuant to Section 8(a), may determine.

The Contract at a Glance


The following is a snapshot of the Contract. Please read the remainder of this prospectus for more information.

Expenses
You will bear the following expenses:
A withdrawal charge of 6% on amounts withdrawn (with certain exceptions).
A Market Value Adjustment (which can be positive or negative) for withdrawals except those taken during the 30 day period after the expiration of a Guarantee Period.
State premium tax (if your state imposes one).

Withdrawals
You may withdraw some or all of your Contract Value ("Contract Value") at any time prior to the Payout Start Date. If you withdraw Contract Value from a Guarantee Period before its maturity, a withdrawal charge, Market Value Adjustment, and taxes may apply. Withdrawals taken prior to annuitization (referred to in this prospectus as the Payout Phase) are generally considered to come from the earnings in the Contract first. If the Contract is tax-qualified, generally all withdrawals are treated as distributions of earnings. Withdrawals of earnings are taxed as ordinary income and, if taken prior to age 59 ½, may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax penalty.


4 PROSPECTUS



How the Contract Works




The Contract basically works in two ways.
First, the Contract can help you (we assume you are the “Contract Owner”) save for retirement because you can invest in the Contract and generally pay no federal income taxes on any earnings until you withdraw or otherwise access them. You do this during what we call the “Accumulation Phase” of the Contract. The Accumulation Phase begins on the date we issue your Contract (we call that date the “Issue Date”) and continues until the “Payout Start Date,” which is the date we apply your money to provide income payments. During the Accumulation Phase, you may allocate your purchase payment to any combination of available Guarantee Periods. You will earn a fixed rate of interest that we declare periodically.
Second, the Contract can help you plan for retirement because you can use it to receive retirement income for life and/ or for a pre‑set number of years by selecting one of the income payment options (we call these “Income Plans”) described at “Income Payments - Income Plans.” You receive income payments during what we call the “Payout Phase” of the Contract, which begins on the Payout Start Date and continues until we make the last income payment required by the Income Plan you select. During the Payout Phase we guarantee the amount of your payments, which will remain fixed. The amount of money you accumulate under your Contract during the Accumulation Phase and apply to an Income Plan will determine the amount of your income payments during the Payout Phase.

The timeline below illustrates how you might use your Contract.
timelinea03.jpg
As the Contract Owner, you exercise all of the rights and privileges provided by the Contract. If you die, any surviving Contract Owner or, if none, the Beneficiary will exercise the rights and privileges provided by the Contract. See “The Contract.” In addition, if you die before the Payout Start Date we will pay Death Benefits to any surviving Contract Owner or, if there is none, to your Beneficiary. (See “Death Benefits.”)
Please call us at 1-800-654-2397 if you have any questions about how the Contract works.

5 PROSPECTUS




The Contract





CONTRACT OWNER
Scheduled Annuity Manager is a contract between you, the Contract Owner, and Allstate Life, a life insurance company. As the Contract Owner, you may exercise all of the rights and privileges provided to you by the Contract. That means it is up to you to select or change (to the extent permitted):
the amount and timing of your withdrawals,
the programs you want to use to withdraw money,
the income payment plan you want to use to receive retirement income,
the Annuitant (either yourself or someone else) on whose life the income payments will be based,
the Beneficiary or Beneficiaries who will receive the benefits that the Contract provides when the last surviving Contract Owner dies, and
any other rights that the Contract provides.
If you die, any surviving Contract Owner or, if none, the Beneficiary may exercise the rights and privileges provided to them by the Contract. If the sole surviving Contract Owner dies after the Payout Start Date, the Beneficiary will receive any guaranteed income payments scheduled to continue.
The Contract cannot be jointly owned by both a non-living person and a living person.
Changing ownership of this Contract may cause adverse tax consequences and may not be allowed under qualified plans. Please consult with a competent tax advisor prior to making a request for a change of Contract Owner.
The Contract was available for purchase as an IRA or TSA (also known as a 403(b)). The endorsements required to qualify these annuities under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended ("Code") may limit or modify your rights and privileges under the Contract. Allstate Life no longer issues TSA contracts.
ANNUITANT
The Annuitant is the individual whose life determines the amount and duration of income payments (other than under Income Plans with guaranteed payments for a specified period). The Contract requires that there be an Annuitant at all times during the Accumulation Phase and on the Payout Start Date. The Annuitant must be a living person.
You initially designate an Annuitant in your application. You (or the youngest Contract Owner if there is more than one) will be the Annuitant unless a different person is named. If the Contract Owner is a living person, you may change the Annuitant at any time prior to the Payout Start Date in a form satisfactory to us.
Once we accept your change request, any change will be effective on the date you sign the written request. We are not liable for any payment we make or other action we take before accepting any written request from you.
Once we receive your change request, any change will be effective at the time you sign the written notice. We are not liable for any payment we make or other action we take before receiving any written request from you.
You may designate a joint Annuitant, who is a second person on whose life income payments depend. If the Annuitant dies prior to the Payout Start Date, the new Annuitant will be the youngest Contract owner, unless the Contract owner names a different annuitant.
BENEFICIARY
The Beneficiary is the person who may elect to receive the death benefit or become the new Contract Owner subject to the Death of Owner provision if the sole surviving Contract Owner dies before the Payout Start Date. If the sole surviving Contract Owner dies after the Payout Start Date, the Beneficiaries will receive any guaranteed income payments scheduled to continue.
You may name one or more Beneficiaries when you apply for a Contract. You may change or add Beneficiaries at any time, unless you have designated an irrevocable Beneficiary. We will provide a change of beneficiary request form to be signed by you and filed with us. Until we receive your written request to change a Beneficiary, we are entitled to rely on the most recent Beneficiary information in our files. Once we accept your change request, any change will be effective on the date you sign the written request. We are not liable for any payment we make or other action we take before accepting any written request from you. Accordingly, if you wish to change your Beneficiary, you should deliver your written notice to us promptly. If the Contract Owner is a living person, we will determine the Beneficiary from the most recent request of the Contract Owner.
You may restrict income payments to Beneficiaries by providing us with a written request. Once we accept the written request, the restriction will take effect as of the date you signed the request. Any restriction is subject to any payment made by us or any other action we take before we accept the request.

6 PROSPECTUS



If the Contract Owner is a grantor trust, then the Beneficiary will be that same trust. If the Contract Owner is a non-living person other than a grantor trust, the Contract Owner is also the Beneficiary. If you did not name a Beneficiary or if the named Beneficiary is no longer living when the sole surviving Contract Owner dies, the Beneficiary will be:
your spouse or, if he or she is no longer alive,
your surviving children equally, or if you have no surviving children,
your estate.
Children, as used in this prospectus, are natural and adopted children only, either minor or adult.
If more than one Beneficiary survives you, we will divide the death benefit among the surviving Beneficiaries according to your most recent written instructions. If you have not given us written instructions in a form satisfactory to us, we will pay the death benefit in equal amounts to the surviving Beneficiaries.
For purposes of the Contract, in determining whether a living person, including a Contract Owner, Beneficiary, or Annuitant ("Living Person A") has survived another living person, including a Contract Owner, Beneficiary, or Annuitant (Living Person B"), Living Person A must survive Living Person B by at least 24 hours. Otherwise, Living Person A will be conclusively deemed to have predeceased Living Person B.
MODIFICATION OF THE CONTRACT
Only an officer of Allstate Life may approve a change in or waive any provision of the Contract. Any change or waiver must be in writing. None of our agents has the authority to change or waive the provisions of the Contract. We may not change the terms of the Contract without your consent, except to conform the Contract to applicable law or changes in the law or except as otherwise permitted in the Contract. If a provision of the Contract is inconsistent with state law, we will follow state law.
ASSIGNMENT
You may assign an interest in your Contract. No Beneficiary may assign benefits under the Contract until they are due. We will not be bound by any assignment until you sign it and file it with us. We are not responsible for the validity of any assignment. Federal law prohibits or restricts the assignment of benefits under many types of retirement plans and the terms of such plans may themselves contain restrictions on assignments. An assignment may also result in taxes or tax penalties. You should consult with an attorney before assigning your Contract.
WRITTEN REQUESTS AND FORMS IN GOOD ORDER
Written requests must include sufficient information and/or documentation, and be sufficiently clear, to enable us to complete your request without the need to exercise discretion on our part to carry it out. You may contact our Customer Service Center to learn what information we require for your particular request to be in “good order.” Additionally, we may require that you submit your request on our form. We reserve the right to determine whether any particular request is in good order, and to change or waive any good order requirements at any time.
If you have any questions, please contact your financial representative or call our Customer Service Center at 1-800-755-5275.
Purchases and Contract Value
MINIMUM PURCHASE PAYMENTS
All subsequent purchase payments must be at least $1,000. You may make purchase payments at any time prior to the Payout Start Date. We reserve the right to limit the maximum amount and number of purchase payments we will accept.
AUTOMATIC ADDITIONS PROGRAM
You may make subsequent purchases payments by automatically transferring money from your bank account Please call or write us for an enrollment form.
ALLOCATION OF PURCHASE PAYMENTS
For each purchase payment, you must select a Guarantee Period. A Guarantee Period is a period of years during which you will earn a guaranteed interest rate on your money. You must allocate at least $1,000 to any one Guarantee Period at the time you make your purchase payment or select a renewal Guarantee Period.
We will apply your purchase payment to the Guarantee Period you select within 7 days of the receipt of the payment and required information.
CONTRACT VALUE
Your Contract Value at any time during the Accumulation Phase is equal to the sum of the purchase payments you have invested in the Guarantee Periods, plus earnings thereon, and less any amounts previously withdrawn.

7 PROSPECTUS



Guarantee Periods
Each payment allocated to a Guarantee Period earns interest at a specified rate that we guarantee. We are currently offering Guarantee Periods of 1, 3 and 5 years in length. In the future we may offer Guarantee Periods of different lengths ranging from 1 to 10 years or stop offering some Guarantee Periods.
Amounts allocated to Guarantee Periods become part of our general account, which supports our insurance and annuity obligations. The general account consists of our general assets other than those in segregated asset accounts. We have sole discretion to invest the assets of the general account, subject to applicable law. You do not share in the investment experience of the general account. Obligations under the Contract are subject to the financial strength and claims paying ability of Allstate Life, the registrant.
You must allocate at least $1,000 to a Guarantee Period at the time you make a purchase payment or select a renewal Guarantee Period.
INTEREST RATES
We will tell you what interest rates and Guarantee Periods we are offering at a particular time. We will not change the interest rate that we credit to a particular investment until the end of the relevant Guarantee Period. We may declare different interest rates for Guarantee Periods of the same length that begin at different times.
We have no specific formula for determining the rate of interest that we will declare initially or in the future. We will set those interest rates based on investment returns available at the time of the determination. In addition, we may consider various other factors in determining interest rates including regulatory and tax requirements, sales commissions and administrative expenses, general economic trends, and competitive factors. We determine the interest rates to be declared in our sole discretion. We can neither predict nor guarantee what those rates will be in the future. For current interest rate information, please contact Allstate Life at 1-800-654-2397.
HOW WE CREDIT INTEREST
We will credit interest to your additional purchase payments from the date we receive them. We will credit interest daily to each amount allocated to a Guarantee Period at a rate that compounds to the annual interest rate that we declared at the beginning of the applicable Guarantee Period.
The following example illustrates how a $10,000 purchase payment would grow, if allocated to a 5 year Guarantee Period, crediting a hypothetical 4.5% annual interest rate:

This example assumes no withdrawals during the entire 5 year Guarantee Period. If you were to make a partial withdrawal, you may be required to pay a withdrawal charge. In addition, the amount withdrawn may be increased or decreased by a Market Value Adjustment that reflects changes in interest rates since the time you invested the amount withdrawn (see "Market Value Adjustment"). The hypothetical annual interest rate is for illustrative purposes only and is not intended to predict future interest rates to be declared under the Contract. Actual interest rates declared for any given Guarantee Period may be more or less than shown above but will never be less than the guaranteed minimum rate stated in the Contract.

RENEWALS
We will mail you a notice at least 10 days prior to the end of each Guarantee Period, informing you of the options available to you for the expiring Guarantee Period. During the 30-day period after the end of the Guarantee Period, you may:
1)
Take no action. We will automatically apply your money to a new Guarantee Period of the same length as the expiring Guarantee Period, or if unavailable, into a Guarantee Period of the next shortest term currently offered. The new Guarantee Period will begin on the day the previous Guarantee Period ends. The new interest rate will be our then current declared rate for a Guarantee Period of that length; or
2)
Instruct us to apply your money to one or more new Guarantee Periods that may be available. The new Guarantee Period(s) will begin on the day the previous Guarantee Period(s) ends. The new interest rate for each new Guarantee Period will be our then current declared rates for that Guarantee Period; or
3)
Withdraw all or a portion of your money from the expired Guarantee Period without incurring a Market Value Adjustment (or a withdrawal charge to the extent of the Free Withdrawal Amount). Amounts withdrawn will be deemed withdrawn on the day the Guarantee Period expired. Amounts not withdrawn will be applied to a new Guarantee Period of the same length as the previous Guarantee Period, or if available, into a Guarantee Period of the next shortest term currently offered. The new Guarantee Period will begin on the day the previous Guarantee Period ends.
Preferred Withdrawal Amount
Market Value Adjustment. All withdrawals from a Guarantee Period, other than those taken within the first 30 days of a renewal Guarantee Period, are subject to a Market Value Adjustment. A Market Value Adjustment may also apply upon payment of a death benefit under a Contract and when you apply amounts currently invested in a Guarantee Period to an Income Plan (other than during the 30-day period described above).
We will not apply the Market Value Adjustment to withdrawals you make:
to satisfy IRS minimum distribution rules for the Contract; or
within the “Preferred Withdrawal Amount,” described under “Expenses” below.
We apply the Market Value Adjustment to reflect changes in interest rates from the time you first allocate money to a Guarantee Period to the time you remove it from that Guarantee Period. We calculate the Market Value Adjustment by comparing the Treasury Rate for a period equal to the Guarantee Period at its inception to the Treasury Rate for a period equal to the time remaining in the Guarantee Period when you remove your money. “Treasury Rate” means the U.S. Treasury Note Constant Maturity Yield as reported in Federal Reserve Board Statistical Release H.15.
The Market Value Adjustment may be positive or negative, depending on changes in interest rates. As such, you bear the investment risk associated with changes in interest rates. If interest rates increase significantly from the time you make a purchase payment, the Market Value Adjustment, any applicable withdrawal charge, premium taxes, and income tax withholding (if applicable) could reduce the amount you receive upon full withdrawal of your Contract Value to an amount that is less than the sum of your purchase payments plus interest earned under your Contract.
Generally, if the Treasury Rate at the time you allocate money to a Guarantee Period is lower than the applicable current Treasury Rate for a period equal to the time remaining in the Guarantee Period, then the Market Value Adjustment will result in a lower amount payable to you. Conversely, if the Treasury Rate at the time you allocate money to a Guarantee Period is higher than the applicable current Treasury Rate, then the Market Value Adjustment will result in a higher amount payable to you.
For example, assume that you purchase a Contract and select an initial Guarantee Period of 5 years and the Treasury Rate for that duration is 4.50%. Assume that at the end of 3 years, you make a partial withdrawal in excess of the Preferred Withdrawal Amount. If, at that later time, the current Treasury Rate for a 2 year period is 4.00%, then the Market Value Adjustment will be positive, which will result in an increase in the amount payable to you. Conversely, if the current Treasury Rate for the 2 year period is 5.00%, then the Market Value Adjustment will be negative, which will result in a decrease in the amount payable to you.
The formula for calculating Market Value Adjustments is set forth on on page 25 of this prospectus, which also contains additional examples of the application of the Market Value Adjustment.
Expenses
As a Contract Owner, you will bear the charges and expenses described below.
WITHDRAWAL CHARGE
During the Accumulation Phase, we may assess a withdrawal charge equal to 6% of the amounts withdrawn or surrendered. However, each year you may withdraw up to 10% of the money initially allocated to the Guarantee Period from which you are making the

9 PROSPECTUS



withdrawal, without paying a withdrawal charge. We measure each year from the commencement of the relevant Guarantee Period. Unused portions of this 10% "Preferred Withdrawal Amount" are not carried forward to future years or other Guarantee Periods. We will deduct withdrawal charges, if applicable, from the amount paid unless you instruct otherwise.
The following example illustrates how the withdrawal charge is calculated on a full surrender at the end of the third contract year with an initial deposit of $10,000, interest rate of 4.50% and no prior withdrawals:
Step 1 calculate Contract Value
$10,000 * (1.045)3 = $11,411.66

Step 2 calculate the amount in excess of the Free Withdrawal Amount
Free Withdrawal Amount = 10% * $10,000 = $1,000            Amount in Excess is $11,411.66 - $1,000 = $10,411.66

Step 3 calculate the Withdrawal Charge
6.0% * $10,411.66 = $624.70
We do not apply a withdrawal charge in the following situations:
on the Payout Start Date;
withdrawals taken to satisfy IRS minimum distribution rules for the Contract; or
withdrawals made within 30 days of their renewal Guarantee Periods.
We use the amounts obtained from the withdrawal charge to recover the cost of sales commissions and other promotional or distribution expenses associated with marketing the Contracts.
Withdrawals may be subject to tax penalties, income tax, and a Market Value Adjustment. You should consult your own tax counsel or other qualified tax advisor regarding the tax consequences of making withdrawals.
PREMIUM TAXES
Some states and other governmental entities (e.g., municipalities) charge premium taxes or similar taxes. We are responsible for paying these taxes and will deduct them from your Contract Value. Some of these taxes are due when the Contract is issued, others are due when income payments begin or upon surrender. Our current practice is not to charge anyone for these taxes until income payments begin or when a total withdrawal occurs, including payment upon death.
We may, sometime in the future, discontinue this practice and deduct premium taxes from the purchase payments. Premium taxes generally range from 0% to 4%, depending on the state or other governmental entity (as applicable).
At the Payout Start Date, we deduct the charge for any applicable premium taxes from the total Contract Value before applying the Contract Value to an Income Plan.
Access to Your Money









You can withdraw some or all of your money at any time prior to the Payout Start Date. You may not make any withdrawals or surrender your Contract once the Payout Phase has begun.
You must specify the Guarantee Period from which you would like to withdraw your money. If the amount you withdraw reduces the amount invested in any Guarantee Period to less than $1,000, we will treat the withdrawal request as a request to withdraw the entire amount in that Guarantee Period.
The amount you receive may be reduced by a withdrawal charge, income tax withholding, and any premium taxes. The amount you receive may be increased or reduced by a Market Value Adjustment. If you request a total withdrawal, we may require you to return your Contract to us.
Withdrawals taken prior to annuitization (referred to in this prospectus as the Payout Phase) are generally considered to come from the earnings in the Contract first. If the Contract is tax-qualified, generally all withdrawals are treated as distributions of earnings. Distributions taken prior to age 59 ½ may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax penalty.
SYSTEMATIC WITHDRAWAL PROGRAM
You may choose to receive systematic withdrawal payments on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis at any time prior to the Payout Start Date. The minimum amount of each systematic withdrawal is $100. We will deposit systematic withdrawal payments into the Contract Owner's bank account. Please consult your tax advisor before taking any withdrawal.
We may modify or suspend the Systematic Withdrawal Program and charge a processing fee for the service. If we modify or suspend the Systematic Withdrawal Program, existing systematic withdrawal payments will not be affected.

10 PROSPECTUS



POSTPONEMENT OF PAYMENTS
We may postpone, at our discretion, payment of withdrawals for up to six months from the date we receive your withdrawal request or such shorter time as the law may allow. Where required, we will obtain prior approval from your state Insurance Commissioner.
MINIMUM CONTRACT VALUE
If the amount you withdraw reduces your Contract Value to less than $1,000, we may treat it as a request to withdraw your entire Contract Value. Your Contract will terminate if you withdraw all of your Contract Value. We will, however, ask you to confirm your withdrawal request before terminating your Contract. Before terminating any Contract whose value has been reduced by withdrawals to less than $1,000, we would inform you in writing of our intention to terminate your Contract and give you at least 30 days in which to make an additional purchase payment to restore your Contract’s value to the contractual minimum of $1,000. If we terminate your Contract, we will distribute to you its Contract Value, adjusted by any Market Value Adjustment, less withdrawal and other charges and applicable taxes.
Payout Phase

PAYOUT START DATE
The Payout Start Date is the day that we apply your Contract Value, adjusted by the Market Value Adjustment, less any applicable taxes, to an Income Plan. The Payout Start Date must be:
at least 30 days after the Issue Date; and
no later than the Annuitant’s 90th birthday, or
the 10th Contract anniversary, if later.
You may change the Payout Start Date at any time by notifying us in writing of the change at least 30 days before the new Payout Start Date. Absent a change, we will use the Payout Start Date as stated in your Contract.
INCOME PLANS
An Income Plan is a series of scheduled payments to you or someone you designate. You may choose only one Income Plan. You may choose and change your choice of Income Plan until 30 days before the Payout Start Date. If we do not receive notification of your selection, you will be deemed to have elected Income Plan 1, life income with guaranteed payments for 120 months, and we will make payments in accordance with that Income Plan. You may not make withdrawals or change your choice of Income Plan after the Payout Start Date. If you don't want an Income Plan you must surrender your Contract prior to the Contract Maturity Date.
A portion of each payment will be considered taxable andthe remaining portion will be a non-taxable return of your investment in the Contract, which is also called the "basis". Once the investment in the Contract is depleted, all remaining payments will be fully taxable. If the Contract is tax-qualified, generally all payments will be fully taxable. Taxable payments taken prior to age 59 ½ may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax penalty.
The three Income Plans available under the Contract are:
Income Plan 1 - Life Income with and Without Guaranteed Payments. Under this plan, we make periodic income payments for as long as the Annuitant lives. If the Annuitant dies in the Payout Phase, we will continue to pay income payments until the guaranteed number of payments has been paid. The number of months guaranteed ("Guaranteed Payment period") may range from 60 to 360 months. If you elect no guaranteed payments, payments will continue only as long as the Annuitant lives.
Income Plan 2 - Joint and Survivor Life Income with and Without Guaranteed Payments. Under this plan, we make periodic income payments for at least as long as either the Annuitant or the joint Annuitant lives. If both the Annuitant and the joint Annuitant die in the Payout Phase, we will continue to pay the income payments until the guaranteed number of payments has been paid. The Guaranteed Payment period may range from 60 to 360 months. If you elect no guaranteed payments, payment will continue only as long as the Annuitant or joint Annuitant lives.
Income Plan 3 - Guaranteed Payments for a Specified Period. Under this plan, we make periodic income payments for the period you have chosen. These payments do not depend on the Annuitant's life. The shortest number of months guaranteed is 60; the longest number of months guaranteed is 360.
The length of any guaranteed payment period under your selected Income Plan generally will affect the dollar amounts of each income payment. As a general rule, longer guarantee periods result in lower income payments, all other things being equal. For example, if you choose an Income Plan with payments that depend on the life of the Annuitant but with no minimum specified period for guaranteed payments, the income payments generally will be greater than the income payments made under the same Income Plan with a minimum specified period for guaranteed payments. As a general rule, plans with a joint Annuitant also will result in lower income payments. Income plans may vary from state to state.
We may make other Income Plans available, including ones that you and we agree upon. You may obtain information about them by writing or calling us.

11 PROSPECTUS



If you choose Income Plan 1 or 2, or, if available, another Income Plan with payments that continue for the life of the Annuitant or joint Annuitant, we may require proof of age and sex of the Annuitant or joint Annuitant before starting income payments, and may require proof that the Annuitant or joint Annuitant is still alive before we make each payment. Please note that under such Income Plans, if you elect to take no minimum guaranteed payments, it is possible that the payee could receive no income payments if the Annuitant and any joint Annuitant both die before the first income payment, or only one income payment if they die before the second income payment, and so on.
We will apply your Contract Value, adjusted by a Market Value Adjustment, less applicable taxes, to your Income Plan on the Payout Start Date. If the amount available to apply under an Income Plan is not enough to provide an initial payment of at least $20, and state law permits, we may:
terminate the Contract and pay you the Contract Value, adjusted by any Market Value Adjustment and less any applicable taxes, in a lump sum instead of the periodic payments you have chosen, or
reduce the frequency of your payments so that each payment will be at least $20.
Income Payments. Subject to your Income Plan selection, we guarantee income payment amounts for the duration of the Income Plan. We calculate income payments by:
1.
adjusting the value of your Contract on the Payout Start Date by any applicable Market Value Adjustment;
2.
deducting any applicable premium tax; and
3.
applying the resulting amount to the greater of (a) the appropriate value from the income payment table in your Contract or (b) such other value as we are offering at that time.
We may postpone, at our discretion, making fixed income payments for a period of up to six months or such shorter time as state law may allow. Where required, we will obtain prior approval from your state Insurance Commissioner. If we postpone payments for 30 days or more, we will pay interest as required by law from the date we receive the withdrawal request to the date we make payment.
CERTAIN EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
The Contract offered by this prospectus contains income payment tables that provide for different payments to men and women of the same age, except in states that require unisex tables. We reserve the right to use income payment tables that do not distinguish on the basis of sex, to the extent permitted by law. In certain employment-related situations, employers are required by law to use the same income payment tables for men and women. Accordingly, if the Contract is used in connection with an employment-related retirement or benefit plan and we do not offer unisex annuity tables in your state, you should consult with legal counsel as to whether the Contract is appropriate.
Death Benefits
We will pay a death benefit if, prior to the Payout Start Date:
1)
any Contract Owner dies, or
2)
the Annuitant dies.
We will pay the death benefit to the new Contract owner as determined immediately after the death. The new Contract owner would be a surviving Contract Owner or, if none, the Beneficiary.
DEATH BENEFIT AMOUNT
Prior to the Payout Start Date, the death benefit is equal to the greater of: (1) the Contract Value, and (2) the "Cash Surrender Value," which is the Contract Value, adjusted by any Market Value Adjustment, less withdrawal charges and premium taxes. We will calculate the value of the death benefit as of the date we receive the first complete request for settlement of the death benefit.
A claim for settlement of the death benefit must include "Due Proof of Death." We will accept the following documentation as Due Proof of Death:
a certified copy of the death certificate;
a certified copy of a decree of a court of competent jurisdiction as to the finding of death; or
any other proof acceptable to us.
DEATH BENEFIT OPTIONS
Upon death of the Contract Owner, the new Contract Owner generally has the following 3 options:
1.
receive the Cash Surrender Value within 5 years of the date of death;
2.
receive the Death Benefit in a lump sum; or

12 PROSPECTUS



3.
apply the Death Benefit to an Income Plan, with income payments beginning within one year of the date of death. Income payments must be made over the life of the new Contract Owner, or a period not to exceed the life expectancy of the new Contract Owner.
Options 2 and 3 above are only available if we receive Due Proof of Death within 180 days of the date of death. We are currently waiving the 180 day limitation but may enforce it in the future. Please refer to your Contract for more details on the above options, including terms that apply to grantor trusts.
If the new Contract Owner is a non-living person (other than a grantor trust), the new Contract Owner must elect to receive the Death Benefit in a lump sum.
If the surviving spouse of the deceased Contract Owner is the new Contract Owner, then the spouse may elect Options 2 or 3 listed above or may continue the Contract in the Accumulation Phase as if the death had not occurred. If there is no Annuitant at that time, the new Annuitant will be the surviving spouse, unless the new Contract Owner names a different annuitant. If the Contract is continued in the Accumulation Phase, the surviving spouse may make a single withdrawal of any amount within 1 year of the date of death without incurring a withdrawal charge.
However, any applicable Market Value Adjustment, determined as of the date of the withdrawal, will apply. The single withdrawal amount is in addition to the annual Preferred Withdrawal Amount.
If the Contract Owner is not the Annuitant and the Annuitant dies, then the Contract Owner has the following 3 options:
1.
continue the Contract as if the death had not occurred;
2.
receive the Death Benefit in a lump sum; or
3.
apply the Death Benefit to an Income Plan, which must begin within 1 year of the date of death and must be for a period equal to or less than the life expectancy of the Contract Owner.
The Contract Owner has 60 days from the date Allstate Life receives Due Proof of Death to select an income plan without incurring a tax on the entire gain in the Contract. If the Contract Owner elects to continue the Contract they will be taxed on the entire gain in the Contract computed on the date of continuance. We are required to report such gain to the IRS as income to the Contract Owner. An additional 10% federal tax penalty may apply if the Contract Owner is under age 59 ½. Any amount included in the Contract Owner's gross income as a result of a Contract continuance will increase the investment in the Contract for future distributions.
For Options 1 and 3, the new Annuitant will be the youngest Contract Owner unless the Contract Owner names a different Annuitant. Options 1 and 3 are not available if the Contract Owner is a non-living person (other than a grantor trust).
Options 2 and 3 above are available only if we receive Due Proof of Death within 180 days of the date of death. We are currently waiving the 180 day limitation, but may enforce it in the future. Please refer to your Contract for more details on the above options, including terms that apply to grantor trusts.

Taxes
The following discussion is general and is not intended as tax advice. Allstate Life makes no guarantee regarding the tax treatment of any Contract or transaction involving a Contract.
Federal, state, local and other tax consequences of ownership or receipt of distributions under an annuity contract depend on your individual circumstances. If you are concerned about any tax consequences with regard to your individual circumstances, you should consult a competent tax advisor.
TAXATION OF ALLSTATE LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY
Allstate Life is taxed as a life insurance company under Part I of Subchapter L of the Code.
TAXATION OF FIXED ANNUITIES IN GENERAL
Tax Deferral. Generally, you are not taxed on increases in the Contract Value until a distribution occurs. This rule applies only where the Contract Owner is a natural person.
Non-Natural Owners. Non-natural owners are also referred to as Non Living Owners in this prospectus. As a general rule, annuity contracts owned by non-natural persons such as corporations, trusts, or other entities are not treated as annuity contracts for federal income tax purposes. The income on such contracts does not enjoy tax deferral and is taxed as ordinary income received or accrued by the non-natural owner during the taxable year.
Exceptions to the Non-Natural Owner Rule. There are several exceptions to the general rule that annuity contracts held by a non-natural owner are not treated as annuity contracts for federal income tax purposes. Contracts will generally be treated as held by a natural person if the nominal owner is a trust or other entity which holds the contract as agent for a natural person. However, this special exception will not apply in the case of an employer who is the nominal owner of an annuity contract under a non-qualified

14 PROSPECTUS



deferred compensation arrangement for its employees. Other exceptions to the non-natural owner rule are: (1) contracts acquired by an estate of a decedent by reason of the death of the decedent; (2) certain qualified contracts; (3) contracts purchased by employers upon the termination of certain Qualified Plans; (4) certain contracts used in connection with structured settlement agreements; and (5) immediate annuity contracts, purchased with a single premium, when the annuity starting date is no later than a year from purchase of the annuity and substantially equal periodic payments are made, not less frequently than annually, during the annuity period.
Grantor Trust Owned Annuity. Contracts owned by a grantor trust are considered owned by a non-natural owner. Grantor trust owned contracts receive tax deferral as described in the Exceptions to the Non-Natural Owner Rule section. In accordance with the Code, upon the death of the annuitant, the death benefit must be paid. According to your Contract, the Death Benefit is paid to the surviving Contract Owner. Since the trust will be the surviving Contract Owner in all cases, the Death Benefit will be payable to the trust notwithstanding any beneficiary designation on the annuity contract. A trust, including a grantor trust, has two options for receiving any death benefits: 1) a lump sum payment; or 2) payment deferred up to five years from date of death.
Taxation of Partial and Full Withdrawals. If you make a partial withdrawal under a non-Qualified Contract, amounts received are taxable to the extent the Contract Value, without regard to surrender charges, exceeds the investment in the Contract. An exception to this treatment exists for contracts purchased prior to August 14, 1982, or contracts with investment prior to that date often referred to as Pre-TEFRA cost basis. In those contracts, withdrawals are treated as a return of cost basis until all Pre-TEFRA cost basis is withdrawn. The investment in the Contract is the gross premium paid for the contract minus any amounts previously received from the Contract if such amounts were properly excluded from your gross income. If you make a total withdrawal under a non‑Qualified Contract, the amount received will be taxable only to the extent it exceeds the investment in the Contract.
You should contact a competent tax advisor about the potential tax consequences of a Market Value Adjustment, as no definitive guidance exists on the proper tax treatment of Market Value Adjustments.
Taxation of Annuity Payments. Generally, the rule for income taxation of annuity payments received from a non-Qualified Contract provides for the return of your investment in the Contract in equal tax-free amounts over the payment period. The balance of each payment received is taxable. For fixed annuity payments, the amount excluded from income is determined by multiplying the payment by the ratio of the investment in the Contract (adjusted for any refund feature or period certain) to the total expected value of annuity payments for the term of the Contract. The annuity payments will be fully taxable after the total amount of the investment in the Contract is excluded using these ratios. The federal tax treatment of annuity payments is unclear in some respects. As a result, if the IRS should provide further guidance, it is possible that the amount we calculate and report to the IRS as taxable could be different. If you die, and annuity payments cease before the total amount of the investment in the Contract is recovered, the unrecovered amount will be allowed as a deduction for your last taxable year.
Partial Annuitization. An individual may partially annuitize their non-qualified annuity if the contract permits. The Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 included a provision which allows for a portion of a non-qualified annuity to be annuitized while the balance is not annuitized. The annuitized portion must be paid out over 10 or more years or over the lives of one of more individuals. The annuitized portion of the contract is treated as a separate contract for purposes of determining taxability of the payments under Section 72 of the Code. We do not currently permit partial annuitization.
Withdrawals After the Payout Start Date. Federal tax law is unclear regarding the taxation of any additional withdrawal received after the Payout Start Date. It is possible that a greater or lesser portion of such a payment could be taxable than the amount we determine.
Distribution at Death Rules. In order to be considered an annuity contract for federal income tax purposes, the Contract must provide:
if any Contract Owner dies on or after the Payout Start Date but before the entire interest in the Contract has been distributed, the remaining portion of such interest must be distributed at least as rapidly as under the method of distribution being used as of the date of the Contract Owner’s death;
if any Contract Owner dies prior to the Payout Start Date, the entire interest in the Contract will be distributed within 5 years after the date of the Contract Owner’s death. These requirements are satisfied if any portion of the Contract Owner’s interest that is payable to (or for the benefit of) a designated Beneficiary is distributed over the life of such Beneficiary (or over a period not extending beyond the life expectancy of the Beneficiary) and the distributions begin within 1 year of the Contract Owner’s death. If the Contract Owner’s designated Beneficiary is the surviving spouse (as defined by federal law) of the Contract Owner, the Contract may be continued with the surviving spouse as the new Contract Owner;
if the Contract Owner is a non-natural person, then the Annuitant will be treated as the Contract Owner for purposes of applying the distribution at death rules. In addition, a change in the Annuitant on a Contract owned by a non-natural person will trigger the rules under death of the Contract Owner.
Please consult with your tax or legal adviser for additional information.
Taxation of Annuity Death Benefits. Death Benefit amounts are included in income as follows:
if distributed in a lump sum, the amounts are taxed in year of distribution in the same manner as a total withdrawal, or
if distributed under an Income Plan, the amounts are taxed in the same manner as annuity payments.

Medicare Tax on Net Investment Income. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, enacted in 2010, included a Medicare tax on investment income. This tax assesses a 3.8% surtax on the lesser of (1) net investment income or (2) the excess of “modified adjusted gross income” over a threshold amount. The “threshold amount” is $250,000 for married taxpayers filing jointly, $125,000 for married taxpayers filing separately, $200,000 for single taxpayers, and approximately $12,750 for trusts. The taxable portion of payments received as a withdrawal, surrender, annuity payment, death benefit payment or any other actual or deemed distribution under the contract will be considered investment income for purposes of this surtax.
Penalty Tax on Premature Distributions. A 10% penalty tax applies to the taxable amount of any premature distribution from a non-Qualified Contract. The penalty tax generally applies to any distribution made prior to the date you attain age 59½. However, no penalty tax is incurred on distributions:
made on or after the date the Contract Owner attains age 59½,
made as a result of the Contract Owner’s death (or Annuitant’s death when owner is not an individual) or becoming totally disabled as defined in the Code,
made in substantially equal periodic payments (as defined by the Code) over the Contract Owner’s life or life expectancy, or over the joint lives or joint life expectancies of the Contract Owner and the Beneficiary,
made under an immediate annuity (as defined by the Code), or
attributable to investment in the Contract before August 14, 1982.
You should consult a competent tax advisor to determine how these exceptions may apply to your situation.
Substantially Equal Periodic Payments. With respect to non‑Qualified Contracts using substantially equal periodic payments or immediate annuity payments as an exception to the penalty tax on premature distributions, any additional withdrawal or other material modification of the payment stream would violate the requirement that payments must be substantially equal. Failure to meet this requirement would mean that the income portion of each payment received prior to the later of 5 years or the Contract Owner’s attaining age 59½ would be subject to a 10% penalty tax unless another exception to the penalty tax applied. The tax for the year of the modification is increased by the penalty tax that would have been imposed without the exception, plus interest for the years in which the exception was used. A material modification does not include permitted changes described in published IRS rulings. Not all products may offer a substantially equal periodic payment stream. You should consult a competent tax advisor prior to creating or modifying a substantially equal periodic payment stream.
Tax Free Exchanges under Internal Revenue Code Section 1035. A 1035 exchange is a tax-free exchange of a non‑Qualified life insurance contract, endowment contract or annuity contract into a non-Qualified annuity contract, including tax-free exchanges of annuity death benefits for a Beneficiary Annuity. The contract owner(s) must be the same on the old and new contracts. Basis from the old contract carries over to the new contract so long as we receive that information from the relinquishing company. If basis information is never received, we will assume that all exchanged funds represent earnings and will allocate no cost basis to them. Once you begin fixed annuity payments, you are not eligible for a tax-free exchange under Section 1035.
Partial Exchanges. The IRS has issued rulings that permit partial exchanges of annuity contracts. Effective October 24, 2011, a partial exchange, from one deferred annuity contract to another deferred annuity contract will qualify for tax deferral. If a distribution from either contract occurs during the 180 day period following the date of the 1035 transfer, the IRS will apply general tax principles to determine the substance and treatment of the transfer. This may include disqualifying the original 1035 exchange or treating the withdrawn funds as a distribution from the original contract. You should consult with a competent tax advisor with respect to withdrawals or surrenders during this 180 day time frame.
If a partial exchange is retroactively negated, the amount originally transferred to the recipient contract is treated as a withdrawal from the source contract, taxable to the extent of any gain in that contract on the date of the exchange. An additional 10% tax penalty may also apply if the Contract Owner is under age 59 ½. Your Contract may not permit partial exchanges, please contact us for more information.
Partial exchange from a deferred annuity to long-term care contract. The IRS confirmed in Notice 2011-68 that partial exchanges from a deferred annuity contract to a qualified long-term care insurance contract can qualify as tax-free exchanges under section 1035.
You should consult a competent tax advisor before entering into any transaction of this type.
Taxation of Ownership Changes. If you transfer a non‑Qualified Contract without full and adequate consideration to a person other than your spouse (or to a former spouse incident to a divorce), you will be taxed on the difference between the Contract Value and the investment in the Contract at the time of transfer. Any assignment or pledge (or agreement to assign or pledge) of the Contract Value is taxed as a withdrawal of such amount or portion and may also incur the 10% penalty tax. If the entire Account Value is assigned or pledged, subsequent increases in the Account Value are also treated as withdrawals for as long as the assignment or pledge remains in place. The cost basis is increased by the amount includible in income with respect to such assignment or pledge.

Aggregation of Annuity Contracts. The Code requires that all non-qualified deferred annuity contracts issued by Allstate Life (or its affiliates) to the same Contract Owner during any calendar year be aggregated and treated as one annuity contract for purposes of determining the taxable amount of a distribution.
INCOME TAX WITHHOLDING
Generally, Allstate Life is required to withhold federal income tax at a rate of 10% from all non-annuitized distributions. The customer may elect out of withholding by completing and signing a withholding election form. If no election is made, we will automatically withhold the required 10% of the taxable amount. If no election is made or no U.S. taxpayer identification number is provided we will automatically withhold the required 10% of the taxable amount. In certain states, if there is federal withholding, then state withholding is also mandatory.
Allstate Life is required to withhold federal income tax using the wage withholding rates for all annuitized distributions. The customer may elect out of withholding by completing and signing a withholding election form. If no election is made, we will automatically withhold using married with three exemptions as the default. If no U.S. taxpayer identification number is provided, we will automatically withhold using single with zero exemptions as the default. In certain states, if there is federal withholding, then state withholding is also mandatory.
Election out of withholding is valid only if the customer provides a U.S. residence address and taxpayer identification number.
Generally, Code Section 1441 provides that Allstate Life as a withholding agent must withhold 30% of the taxable amounts paid to a non-resident alien not subject to FATCA. Certain payees may be subject to the Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) which would require 30% mandatory withholding for certain entities. Please see your personal tax advisor for additional information regarding FATCA. A non‑resident alien is someone other than a U.S. citizen or resident alien. We require an IRS Form W-8 at issue to certify the owners' foreign status. Withholding may be reduced or eliminated if covered by an income tax treaty between the U.S. and the non-resident alien’s country of residence if the payee provides a fully completed Form W-8. A U.S. taxpayer identification number is a social security number or an individual taxpayer identification number (“ITIN”). The U.S. does not have a tax treaty with all countries nor do all tax treaties provide an exclusion or lower withholding rate for annuities.

TAX QUALIFIED CONTRACTS
The income on tax sheltered annuity (TSA) and IRA investments is tax deferred, and the income from annuities held by such plans does not receive any additional tax deferral. You should review the annuity features, including all benefits and expenses, prior to purchasing an annuity as an IRA. Tax Qualified Contracts are contracts purchased as or in connection with:
Individual Retirement Annuities (IRAs) under Code Section 408(b);
Roth IRAs under Code Section 408A;
Simplified Employee Pension (SEP IRA) under Code Section 408(k);
Savings Incentive Match Plans for Employees (SIMPLE IRA) under Code Section 408(p);
Tax Sheltered Annuities under Code Section 403(b);
Corporate and Self Employed Pension and Profit Sharing Plans under Code Section 401; and
State and Local Government and Tax-Exempt Organization Deferred Compensation Plans under Code Section 457.
Allstate Life reserves the right to limit the availability of the Contract for use with any of the retirement plans listed above or to modify the Contract to conform with tax requirements. If you use the Contract within an employer sponsored qualified retirement plan or TSA, the plan may impose different or additional conditions or limitations on withdrawals, waiver of charges, death benefits, Payout Start Dates, income payments, and other Contract features. In addition, adverse tax consequences may result if Qualified Plan and TSA limits on distributions and other conditions are not met. Please consult your Qualified Plan or TSA administrator for more information. Allstate Life no longer issues deferred annuities to employer sponsored qualified retirement plans or TSAs.
The tax rules applicable to participants with tax qualified annuities vary according to the type of contract and the terms and conditions of the endorsement. Adverse tax consequences may result from certain transactions such as excess contributions, premature distributions, and, distributions that do not conform to specified commencement and minimum distribution rules. Allstate Life can issue an individual retirement annuity on a rollover or transfer of proceeds from a decedent’s IRA, TSA, or employer sponsored retirement plan under which the decedent’s surviving spouse is the beneficiary. Allstate Life does not offer an individual retirement annuity that can accept a transfer of funds for any other, non-spousal, beneficiary of a decedent’s IRA, TSA, or employer sponsored qualified retirement plan. Note that in 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Inherited IRA’s, other than IRAs inherited by the owner’s spouse, do not qualify as retirement assets for purposes of protection under federal bankruptcy laws.
Please refer to the section Required Distributions Upon Your Death for a Qualified Annuity for IRAs or 403(b) plans, if applicable, for additional information on your death settlement options. In the case of certain Qualified Plans, the terms of the Qualified Plan Endorsement and the plans may govern the right to benefits, regardless of the terms of the Contract.

Taxation of Withdrawals from an Individually Owned Tax Qualified Contract. If you make a partial withdrawal under a Tax Qualified Contract other than a Roth IRA, the portion of the payment that bears the same ratio to the total payment that they invest in the Contract (i.e., nondeductible IRA contributions) bears to the Contract Value, is excluded from your income. We do not keep track of nondeductible contributions, and generally all tax reporting of distributions from Tax Qualified Contracts other than Roth IRAs will indicate that the distribution is fully taxable.
“Qualified distributions” from Roth IRAs are not included in gross income. “Qualified distributions” are any distributions made more than five taxable years after the taxable year of the first contribution to any Roth IRA and which are:
made on or after the date the Contract Owner attains age 59½,
made to a beneficiary after the Contract Owner’s death,
attributable to the Contract Owner being disabled, or
made for a first time home purchase (first time home purchases are subject to a lifetime limit of $10,000).
“Non-qualified distributions” from Roth IRAs are treated as made from contributions first and are included in gross income only to the extent that distributions exceed contributions.
Required Minimum Distributions. Generally, Tax Qualified Contracts (excluding Roth IRAs) require minimum distributions upon reaching age 70½ (72 for those who would have reached age 70 ½ after 2019). Failure to withdraw the required minimum distribution will result in a 50% tax penalty on the shortfall not withdrawn from the Contract. Effective December 31, 2005, the IRS requires annuity contracts to include the actuarial present value of other benefits for purposes of calculating the required minimum distribution amount. These other benefits may include accumulation, income, or death benefits. Not all income plans offered under the Contract satisfy the requirements for minimum distributions. Because these distributions are required under the Code and the method of calculation is complex, please see a competent tax advisor.
The Death Benefit and Tax Qualified Contracts. Pursuant to the Code and IRS regulations, an IRA (e.g., traditional IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA and SIMPLE IRA) may not invest in life insurance contracts. However, an IRA may provide a death benefit that equals the greater of the purchase payments or the Contract Value. The Contract offers a death benefit that in certain circumstances may exceed the greater of the purchase payments or the Contract Value. We believe that the Death Benefits offered by your Contract do not constitute life insurance under these regulations.
It is also possible that certain death benefits that offer enhanced earnings could be characterized as an incidental death benefit. If the death benefit were so characterized, this could result in current taxable income to a Contract Owner. In addition, there are limitations on the amount of incidental death benefits that may be provided under Qualified Plans, such as in connection with a TSA or employer sponsored qualified retirement plan.
Allstate Life reserves the right to limit the availability of the Contract for use with any of the Qualified Plans listed above.
Penalty Tax on Premature Distributions from Tax Qualified Contracts. A 10% penalty tax applies to the taxable amount of any premature distribution from a Tax Qualified Contract. The penalty tax generally applies to any distribution made prior to the date you attain age 59½. However, no penalty tax is incurred on distributions:
made on or after the date the Contract Owner attains age 59½,
made as a result of the Contract Owner’s death or total disability,
made in substantially equal periodic payments (as defined by the Code) over the Contract Owner’s life or life expectancy, or over the joint lives or joint life expectancies of the Contract Owner and the Beneficiary,
made after separation from service after age 55 (does not apply to IRAs),
made pursuant to an IRS levy,
made for certain medical expenses,
made to pay for health insurance premiums while unemployed (applies only for IRAs),
made for qualified higher education expenses (applies only for IRAs)
made for a first time home purchase (up to a $10,000 lifetime limit and applies only for IRAs),
made for qualified expenses after the birth or adoption of a child ($5,000 limit on expenses incurred within 1 year after birth or adoption), and
from an IRA or attributable to elective deferrals under a 401(k) plan, 403(b) annuity or certain similar arrangements made to individuals who (because of their being members of a reserve component) are ordered or called to active duty after September 11, 2001 for more than 179 days or for an indefinite period; and made during the period beginning on the date of the order or call on duty and ending at the close of the active duty period.

18 PROSPECTUS



During the first 2 years of the individual’s participation in a SIMPLE IRA, distributions that are otherwise subject to the premature distribution penalty, will be subject to a 25% penalty tax.
You should consult a competent tax advisor to determine how these exceptions may apply to your situation.
Substantially Equal Periodic Payments on Tax Qualified Contracts. With respect to Tax Qualified Contracts using substantially equal periodic payments as an exception to the penalty tax on premature distributions, any additional withdrawal or other material modification of the payment stream would violate the requirement that payments must be substantially equal. Failure to meet this requirement would mean that the income portion of each payment received prior to the later of 5 years or the taxpayer’s attaining age 59½ would be subject to a 10% penalty tax unless another exception to the penalty tax applied. The tax for the year of the modification is increased by the penalty tax that would have been imposed without the exception, plus interest for the years in which the exception was used. A material modification does not include permitted changes described in published IRS rulings. Not all products may offer substantially equal periodic payment stream.
Income Tax Withholding on Tax Qualified Contracts. Generally, Allstate Life is required to withhold federal income tax at a rate of 10% from all non-annuitized distributions that are not considered “eligible rollover distributions.” The customer may elect out of withholding by completing and signing a withholding election form. If no election is made or if no U.S. Taxpayer Identification number is provided, we will automatically withhold the required 10% from the taxable amount. Since we cannot determine the taxable amount of distributions from a Roth IRA, we will not automatically withhold 10%. If you request withholding from a Roth IRA distribution, federal income tax will be withheld on the entire amount distributed. In certain states, if there is federal withholding, then state withholding is also mandatory. Allstate Life is required to withhold federal income tax at a rate of 20% on all “eligible rollover distributions” unless you elect to make a “direct rollover” of such amounts to an IRA or eligible retirement plan. Eligible rollover distributions generally include all distributions from Tax Qualified Contracts, including TSAs but excluding IRAs, with the exception of:
required minimum distributions, or,
a series of substantially equal periodic payments made over a period of at least 10 years, or,
a series of substantially equal periodic payments made over the life (joint lives) of the participant (and beneficiary), or,
hardship distributions.
For all annuitized distributions that are not subject to the 20% withholding requirement, Allstate Life is required to withhold federal income tax using the wage withholding rates. The customer may elect out of withholding by completing and signing a withholding election form. If no election is made, we will automatically withhold using married with three exemptions as the default. If no U.S. taxpayer identification number is provided, we will automatically withhold using single with zero exemptions as the default. In certain states, if there is federal withholding, then state withholding is also mandatory. Election out of withholding is valid only if the customer provides a U.S. residence address and taxpayer identification number.
Generally, Code Section 1441 provides that Allstate Life as a withholding agent must withhold 30% of the taxable amounts paid to a non-resident alien not subject to FATCA. Certain payees may be subject to the Foreign Accounts Tax compliance Act (FATCA) which would require 30% mandatory withholding for certain entities. Please see your personal tax advisor for additional information regarding FATCA. A non‑resident alien is someone other than a U.S. citizen or resident alien. We require an IRS Form W-8 at issue to certify the owners' foreign status. Withholding may be reduced or eliminated if covered by an income tax treaty between the U.S. and the non-resident alien’s country of residence if the payee provides a fully completed Form W-8. A U.S. taxpayer identification number is a social security number or an individual taxpayer identification number (“ITIN”). ITINs are issued by the IRS to non-resident alien individuals who are not eligible to obtain a social security number. The U.S. does not have a tax treaty with all countries nor do all tax treaties provide an exclusion or lower withholding rate for annuities.
Charitable IRA Distributions. Certain qualified IRA distributions for charitable purposes are eligible for an exclusion from gross income, up to $100,000, for otherwise taxable IRA distributions from a traditional or Roth IRA. A qualified charitable distribution is a distribution that is made (1) directly by the IRA trustee to a certain qualified charitable organizations and (2) on or after the date the IRA owner attains age 70½. Distributions that are excluded from income under this provision are not taken into account in determining the individual’s deduction, if any, for charitable contributions. Effective in 2020, the amount of your qualified charitable distributions that are excluded from income for a tax year is reduced (but not below zero) by the excess of: (1) the total amount of your IRA deductions allowed for all tax years ending on or after the date you attain age 70 ½, over (2) the total amount of reductions for all tax years preceding the current tax year.
The IRS has indicated that an IRA trustee is not responsible for determining whether a distribution to a charity is one that satisfies the requirements of the charitable giving incentive. Consistent with the applicable IRS instructions, we report these distributions as normal IRA distributions on Form 1099-R. Individuals are responsible for reflecting the distributions as charitable IRA distributions on their personal tax returns.
Individual Retirement Annuities. Code Section 408(b) permits eligible individuals to contribute to an individual retirement program known as an Individual Retirement Annuity (IRA). Individual Retirement Annuities are subject to limitations on the amount that can be contributed and on the time when distributions may commence. Certain distributions from other types of qualified retirement plans

19 PROSPECTUS



may be “rolled over” on a tax-deferred basis into an Individual Retirement Annuity. For IRA rollovers, an individual can only make an IRA to IRA rollover if the individual has not made a rollover involving any IRAs owned by the individual in the prior 12 months. An IRA transfer is a tax-free trustee-to-trustee “transfer” from one IRA account to another. IRA transfers are not subject to this 12-month rule.
Roth Individual Retirement Annuities. Code Section 408A permits eligible individuals to make nondeductible contributions to an individual retirement program known as a Roth Individual Retirement Annuity. Roth Individual Retirement Annuities are subject to limitations on the amount that can be contributed and on the time when distributions may commence.
A traditional Individual Retirement Account or Annuity may be converted or “rolled over” to a Roth Individual Retirement Annuity. The tax law allows distributions from qualified retirement plans including tax sheltered annuities and governmental Section 457 plans to be rolled over directly into a Roth IRA, subject to the usual rules that apply to conversions from a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. The income portion of a conversion or rollover distribution is taxable currently, but is exempted from the 10% penalty tax on premature distributions. Effective January 1, 2005, the IRS requires conversions of annuity contracts to include the actuarial present value of other benefits for purposes of valuing the taxable amount of the conversion.
Annuities Held By Individual Retirement Accounts (commonly known as Custodial IRAs). Code Section 408 permits a custodian or trustee of an Individual Retirement Account to purchase an annuity as an investment of the Individual Retirement Account. If an annuity is purchased inside of an Individual Retirement Account, then the Annuitant must be the same person as the beneficial owner of the Individual Retirement Account.
If you have a contract issued as an IRA under Code Section 408(b) and request to change the ownership to an IRA custodian permitted under Section 408, we will treat a request to change ownership from an individual to a custodian as an indirect rollover. We will send a Form 1099R to report the distribution and the custodian should issue a Form 5498 for the contract value contribution.
Generally, the death benefit of an annuity held in an Individual Retirement Account must be paid upon the death of the Annuitant. However, in most states, the Contract permits the custodian or trustee of the Individual Retirement Account to continue the Contract in the accumulation phase, with the Annuitant’s surviving spouse as the new Annuitant, if the following conditions are met:
1)
The custodian or trustee of the Individual Retirement Account is the owner of the annuity and has the right to the death proceeds otherwise payable under the Contract;
2)
The deceased Annuitant was the beneficial owner of the Individual Retirement Account;
3)
We receive a complete request for settlement for the death of the Annuitant; and
4)
The custodian or trustee of the Individual Retirement Account provides us with a signed certification of the following:
(a)
The Annuitant’s surviving spouse is the sole beneficiary of the Individual Retirement Account;
(b)
The Annuitant’s surviving spouse has elected to continue the Individual Retirement Account as his or her own Individual Retirement Account; and
(c)
The custodian or trustee of the Individual Retirement Account has continued the Individual Retirement Account pursuant to the surviving spouse’s election.
Simplified Employee Pension IRA. Code Section 408(k) allows eligible employers to establish simplified employee pension plans for their employees using individual retirement annuities. These employers may, within specified limits, make deductible contributions on behalf of the employees to the individual retirement annuities. Employers intending to use the Contract in connection with such plans should seek competent tax advice.

Savings Incentive Match Plans for Employees (SIMPLE IRA). Code Section 408(p) allows eligible employers with 100 or fewer employees to establish SIMPLE retirement plans for their employees using individual retirement annuities. In general, a SIMPLE IRA consists of a salary deferral program for eligible employees and matching or nonelective contributions made by employers. Employers intending to purchase the Contract as a SIMPLE IRA should seek competent tax and legal advice.
To determine if you are eligible to contribute to any of the above listed IRAs (traditional, Roth, SEP, or SIMPLE), please refer to IRS Publication 590-A and your competent tax advisor.
Tax Sheltered Annuities. Code Section 403(b) provides tax-deferred retirement savings plans for employees of certain non-profit and educational organizations. Allstate Life has currently suspended sales of TSA contracts.
Under Section 403(b), any contract used for a 403(b) plan must provide that distributions attributable to salary reduction contributions made after 12/31/88, and all earnings on salary reduction contributions, may be made only on or after the date the employee:
attains age 59½,
severs employment,

20 PROSPECTUS



dies,
becomes disabled, or
incurs a hardship (earnings on salary reduction contributions may not be distributed on account of hardship).
These limitations do not apply to withdrawals where Allstate Life is directed to transfer some or all of the Contract Value to another 403(b) plan. Generally, we do not accept funds in 403(b) contracts that are subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). Under IRS regulations we can accept contributions, transfers and rollovers only if we have entered into an information-sharing agreement with the applicable employer or its plan administrator. Unless your contract is grandfathered from certain provisions in these regulations, we will only process certain transactions with employer approval.
Corporate and Self-Employed Pension and Profit Sharing Plans.
Section 401(a) of the Code permits corporate employers to establish various types of tax favored retirement plans for employees. Self-employed individuals may establish tax favored retirement plans for themselves and their employees (commonly referred to as “H.R.10” or “Keogh”). Such retirement plans may permit the purchase of annuity contracts. Allstate Life no longer issues annuity contracts to employer sponsored qualified retirement plans.
There are two owner types for contracts intended to qualify under Section 401(a): a qualified plan fiduciary or an annuitant owner.
A qualified plan fiduciary exists when a qualified plan trust that is intended to qualify under Section 401(a) of the Code is the owner. The qualified plan trust must have its own tax identification number and a named trustee acting as a fiduciary on behalf of the plan. The annuitant should be the person for whose benefit the contract was purchased.
An annuitant owner exists when the tax identification number of the owner and annuitant are the same, or the annuity contract is not owned by a qualified plan trust. The annuitant should be the person for whose benefit the contract was purchased.
If a qualified plan fiduciary is the owner of the contract, the qualified plan must be the beneficiary so that death benefits from the annuity are distributed in accordance with the terms of the qualified plan. Annuitant owned contracts require that the beneficiary be the annuitant’s spouse (if applicable), which is consistent with the required IRS language for qualified plans under Section 401(a). A completed Annuitant Owned Qualified Plan Designation of Beneficiary form is required in order to change the beneficiary of an annuitant owned Qualified Plan contract.

State and Local Government and Tax-Exempt Organization Deferred Compensation Plans.
Section 457 of the Code permits employees of state and local governments and tax-exempt organizations to defer a portion of their compensation without paying current taxes. The employees must be participants in an eligible deferred compensation plan. In eligible governmental plans, all assets and income must be held in a trust/custodial account/annuity contract for the exclusive benefit of the participants and their beneficiaries. To the extent the Contracts are used in connection with a non-governmental eligible plan, employees are considered general creditors of the employer and the employer as owner of the Contract has the sole right to the proceeds of the Contract. Under eligible 457 plans, contributions made for the benefit of the employees will not be includible in the employees’ gross income until distributed from the plan. Allstate Life no longer issues annuity contracts to employer sponsored qualified retirement plans.
Late Rollover Self-Certification.
After August 24, 2016, you may be able to apply to rollover a contribution to your IRA or qualified retirement plan after the 60-day deadline through a new self-certification procedure established by the IRS. Please consult your tax or legal adviser regarding your eligibility to use this self-certification procedure. We are not required to accept your self-certification for waiver of the 60-day deadline.
Required Distributions Upon Your Death for a Qualified Annuity.
Upon your death under an IRA, Roth IRA, SIMPLE IRA, 403(b) or other employer sponsored plan, any remaining interest must be distributed in accordance with federal income tax requirements. The post-death distribution requirements were amended, applicable generally with respect to deaths occurring after 2019, by the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2020 (which includes the "Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement" Act (SECURE Act)). The post-death distribution requirements under prior law continue to apply in certain circumstances.
Prior law. Under prior law, if an employee under an employer sponsored plan or IRA owner dies prior to the required beginning date, the remaining interest must be distributed (1) within 5 years after the death (the “5-year rule”), or (2) over the life of the designated beneficiary, or over a period not extending beyond the life expectancy of the designated beneficiary, provided that such distributions commence within one year after death (the “lifetime payout rule”). If the employee or IRA owner dies on or after the required beginning date (including after the date distributions have commenced in the form of an annuity), the remaining interest must be distributed at least as rapidly as under the method of distribution being used as of the date of death (the “at-least-as-rapidly rule”).

21 PROSPECTUS



The new law. Under the new law, if you die after 2019, and you have a designated beneficiary, any remaining interest must be distributed within 10 years after your death, unless the designated beneficiary is an “eligible designated beneficiary” (“EDB”) or some other exception applies. A designated beneficiary is any individual designated as a beneficiary by the employee or IRA owner. An EDB is any designated beneficiary who is (1) your surviving spouse, (2) your minor child, (3) disabled, (4) chronically ill, or (5) an individual not more than 10 years younger than you. An individual’s status as an EDB is determined on the date of your death.
This 10-year post-death distribution period applies regardless of whether you die before your required beginning date, or you die on or after that date (including after distributions have commenced in the form of an annuity). However, if the beneficiary is an EDB and the EDB dies before the entire interest is distributed under this 10-year rule, the remaining interest must be distributed within 10 years after the EDB’s death (i.e., a new 10-year distribution period begins).
Instead of taking distributions under the new 10-year rule, an EDB can take distributions over life, or over a period not extending beyond life expectancy, provided that such distributions commence within one year of your death, subject to certain special rules. In particular, if the EDB dies before the remaining interest is distributed under this life expectancy rule, the remaining interest must be distributed within 10 years after the EDB’s death (regardless of whether the remaining distribution period under the life expectancy rule was more or less than 10 years). In addition, if your minor child is an EDB, the child will cease to be an EDB on the date the child reaches the age of majority, and any remaining interest must be distributed within 10 years after that date (regardless of whether the remaining distribution period under the stretch rule was more or less than 10 years).
It is important to note that under prior law, annuity payments that commenced under a method that satisfied the distribution requirements while the employee or IRA owner was alive could continue to be made under that method after the death of the employee or IRA owner. However, under the new law, if you commence taking distributions in the form of an annuity that can continue after your death, such as in the form of a joint and survivor annuity or an annuity with a guaranteed period of more than 10 years, any distributions after your death that are scheduled to be made beyond the applicable distribution period imposed under the new law might need to be commuted at the end of that period (or otherwise modified after your death if permitted under federal tax law and by Allstate Life) in order to comply with the new post-death distribution requirements.
The new post-death distribution requirements do not apply if annuity payments that comply with prior law commenced prior to December 20, 2019. Also, even if annuity payments have not commenced prior to December 20, 2019, the new requirements generally do not apply to an immediate annuity contract or a deferred income annuity contract (including a qualifying lifetime annuity contract, or “QLAC”)) purchased prior to that date, if you have made an irrevocable election before that date as to the method and amount of the annuity.
If your beneficiary is not an individual, such as a charity, your estate, or a trust, any remaining interest after your death generally must be distributed under prior law in accordance with the 5-year rule or the at-least-as-rapidly rule, as applicable (but not the lifetime payout rule). However, if your beneficiary is a trust and all the beneficiaries of the trust are individuals, the new law can apply pursuant to special rules that treat the beneficiaries of the trust as designated beneficiaries, including special rules allowing a beneficiary of a trust who is disabled or chronically ill to take the distribution of their interest over their life or life expectancy in some cases. You may wish to consult a professional tax advisor about the federal income tax consequences of your beneficiary designations.
In addition, the new post-death distribution requirements generally do not apply if the employee or IRA owner died prior to January 1, 2020. However, if the designated beneficiary of the deceased employee or IRA owner dies after January 1, 2020, any remaining interest must be distributed within 10 year of the designated beneficiary’s death. Hence, this 10-year rule will apply to a contract issued prior to 2020 which continues to be held by a designated beneficiary of an employee or IRA owner who died prior to 2020.
Spousal continuation. Under the new law, as under prior law, if your beneficiary is your spouse, your surviving spouse can delay the application of the post-death distribution requirements until after your surviving spouse’s death by transferring the remaining interest tax-free to your surviving spouse’s own IRA, or by treating your IRA as your surviving spouse’s own IRA.

The post-death distribution requirements are complex and unclear in numerous respects. In addition, the manner in which these requirements will apply will depend on your particular facts and circumstances. You may wish to consult a professional tax advisor for tax advice as to your particular situation.
ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS
Reporting and Withholding for Escheated Amounts
In 2018, the Internal Revenue Service issued Revenue Ruling 2018-17, which provides that an amount transferred from an IRA to a state’s unclaimed property fund is subject to federal withholding at the time of transfer. The amount transferred is also subject to federal reporting. Consistent with this Ruling, we will withhold federal income taxes and report to the applicable Owner or Beneficiary as required by law when amounts are transferred to a state’s unclaimed property fund.
Gifts and Generation-skipping Transfers 
The transfer of the contract or designation of a beneficiary may have federal, state, and/or local transfer and inheritance tax consequences, including the imposition of gift, estate, and generation-skipping transfer taxes.  For example, the transfer of the contract to, or the designation as a beneficiary of, or the payment of proceeds to, a person who is assigned to a generation which is

22 PROSPECTUS



two or more generations below the generation assignment of the owner may have generation skipping transfer tax consequences under federal tax law. The individual situation of each contract owner or beneficiary will determine the extent, if any, to which federal, state, and local transfer and inheritance taxes may be imposed and how ownership or receipt of contract proceeds will be treated for purposes of federal, state and local estate, inheritance, generation skipping and other taxes. Under certain circumstances, the Code may impose a generation-skipping transfer (“GST”) tax when all or part of an annuity contract is transferred to, or a death benefit is paid to, an individual two or more generations younger than the owner. Regulations issued under the Code may require us to deduct the tax from your contract, or from any applicable payment, and pay it directly to the IRS. Additionally, if you transfer your Annuity to another person for less than adequate consideration, there may be federal or state income tax consequences.  The potential application of these taxes underscores the importance of seeking guidance from a qualified adviser to help ensure that your estate plan adequately addresses your needs and those of your beneficiaries under all possible scenarios.
Same Sex Marriages, Civil Unions and Domestic Partnerships
Prior to a 2013 Supreme Court decision, and consistent with Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”), same sex marriages under state law were not recognized as same sex marriages for purposes of federal law. However, in United States v. Windsor, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Section 3 of DOMA as unconstitutional, thereby recognizing a valid same sex marriage for federal law purposes. On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry, thus requiring all states to allow same-sex marriage. The Windsor and Obergefell decisions mean that the federal and state tax law provisions applicable to an opposite sex spouse will also apply to a same sex spouse. Please note that a civil union or registered domestic partnership is generally not recognized as a marriage.
Please consult with your tax or legal advisor for more information.

Disclosure of Commission Position on Indemnification for Securities Act Liabilities

The Allstate Corporation has secured a financial institutions bond in the amount of $5,000,000, subject to a $25,000,000 deductible. Allstate also maintains directors’ and officers’ liability insurance coverage with limits of $200 million under which ALIC, as well as certain other subsidiaries of Allstate, are covered. A provision in ALIC’s by-laws provides for the indemnification of individuals serving as directors or officers.  Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers or persons controlling ALIC pursuant to the foregoing provisions, ALIC has been informed that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is therefore unenforceable.
Reliance on Rule 12h-7
Rule 12h-7 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), exempts an insurance company from filing reports under the Exchange Act when the insurance company issues certain types of insurance products that are registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and such products are regulated under state law. The Contracts described in this prospectus fall within the exemption provided under rule 12h-7. Effective May 8, 2020, Allstate Life will rely on the exemption provided under Rule 12h-7 and will not file reports under the Exchange Act.

Market Value Adjustment
The Market Value Adjustment is based on the following:
I
=
Treasury Rate for a maturity equal to the Guarantee Period for the week preceding establishment of the Guarantee Period.
N
=
the number of complete days from the date we receive the withdrawal request to the end of the Guarantee Period; and
J
=
the Treasury Rate for a maturity of N days for the week preceding the receipt of the withdrawal request on the date we determine the Market Value Adjustment.
 
 
If a Treasury Rate for a maturity of N days is not available, we will determine J by linear interpolation (weighted average) between the current interest rates for the next higher and lower integral years. If N is less than or equal to 365 days, J will be the 1-year Treasury Rate.

Treasury Rate means the US Treasury Note Constant Maturity weekly yield as reported in Federal Reserve Bulletin H.15
The Market Value Adjustment factor is determined from the following formula:
.9 X (I - J) X (N/365)
To determine the Market Value Adjustment, we will multiply the Market Value Adjustment factor by the amount withdrawn (in excess of the Preferred Withdrawal Amount), or applied to an Income Plan, from a Guarantee Period other than amounts withdrawn or applied from a renewal Guarantee Period during the first 30 days of the renewal Guarantee Period.
Examples of Market Value Adjustment
Purchase Payment:
$10,000
Guarantee Period:
5 years
Interest Rate:
4.50%
Full Surrender:
End of Contract Year 3
NOTE: This illustration assumes that premium taxes are not applicable.
Example 1: (Assumes Declining Interest Rates)
Step 1: Calculate Contract Value at End of Contract Year 3:
$10,000.00 × (1.0450)3 = $11,411.66
Step 2: Calculate the Amount in excess of the Preferred Withdrawal Amount
Preferred Withdrawal Amount (.10 X 10,000) = $1,000
Step 3: Calculate the Withdrawal Charge:
.06 × ($11,411.66 - $1,000) = $624.70
Step 4: Calculate the Market Value Adjustment:
I = 4.5%
J = 4.2%
N = 730 days
Market Value Adjustment Factor: .9 × (I-J) × N/365
= .9× (.045 - .042) × (730/365) = .0054
Market Value Adjustment = Market Value Adjustment Factor × Amount Subject to Market Value Adjustment:
= .0054 × $10,411.66 = $56.22
Step 5: Calculate the amount received by Contract Owner as a result of full withdrawal at the end of Contract Year 3:
$11,411.66 - $624.70 + $56.22 = $10,843.18
Example 2: (Assumes Rising Interest Rates)
Step 1. Calculate Contract Value at End of Contract Year 3:
$10,000.00 × (1.0450)3 = $11,411.66
Step 2: Calculate the Amount in excess of the Preferred Withdrawal Amount:
Preferred Withdrawal Amount (.10 × $10,000) = $1,000
Amount in Excess: $11,411.66 - $1,000 = $10,411.66
Step 3: Calculate the Withdrawal Charge:
.06 × $10,411.66 = $624.70
Step 4: Calculate the Market Value Adjustment:
I = 4.5%
J = 4.8%
N = 730 days
Market Value Adjustment Factor: .9 × (I-J) × N/365
= .9 × (.045 - .048) × (730/365) = - .0054
Market Value Adjustment = Market Value Adjustment Factor × Amount Subject to Market Value Adjustment:
= - .0054 × $10,411.66 = - $56.22
Step 5: Calculate the amount received by Contract Owner as a result of full withdrawal at the end of Contract Year 3:
$11,411.66 - $624.70 - $56.22 = $10,730.74

Policies and Procedures for Review and Approval of Related Person Transactions

All intercompany agreements to which Allstate Life is a party are approved by the Board as well as by the board of any other affiliate of The Allstate Corporation which is a party to the agreement. Intercompany agreements are also submitted for approval to the Illinois Department of Insurance, Allstate Life’s domestic regulator pursuant to the applicable state’s insurance holding company systems act. This process is documented in writing in an internal procedure that captures the review and approval process of all intercompany agreements. All approvals are maintained in Allstate Life’s corporate records.

While there is no formal process for the review and approval of related person transactions between unaffiliated entities specific to Allstate Life, all directors and executive officers of Allstate Life are subject to the Global Code of Business Conduct (“Code”). The Code includes a written conflict of interest policy that was adopted by the Board of Directors of The Allstate Corporation, the ultimate parent company of Allstate Life. Any potential relationship or activity that could impair independent thinking and judgment, including holding a financial interest in a business venture that is similar to Allstate, or in a business that has a relationship with Allstate, must be disclosed to Human Resources. Human Resources will work with representatives from the Law Department, including Enterprise Business Conduct, to determine whether an actual conflict of interest exists. Each director and executive officer must sign a certification annually.

Director Independence

All directors of Allstate Life are employees of Allstate Insurance Company. Under Illinois law, Allstate Life is not required to have independent directors.

ITEM 17.
UNDERTAKINGS.

The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

(1)
That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each post-effective amendment to this registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered herein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(2)
To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(3)
That each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness.

(4)
That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities:




The undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

(i)
Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

(ii)
Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;

(iii)
The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information
about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

(iv)
Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the
purchaser.

(5)
The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant's annual report pursuant to section 13(a) or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan's annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(6)
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
