ING INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA
(A WHOLLY-OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF ING LIFE INSURANCE AND ANNUITY COMPANY)
NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

1.  BASIS OF PRESENTATION

    ING Insurance Company of America ("IICA", or the "Company"), is a provider
    of financial products and services in the United States. The Company is a
    wholly-owned subsidiary of ING Life Insurance and Annuity Company ("ILIAC").
    ILIAC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lion Connecticut Holdings, Inc. ("Lion
    Connecticut"). Lion Connecticut's ultimate parent is ING Groep N.V. ("ING"),
    a financial services company based in The Netherlands.

    The condensed financial statements and notes as of September 30, 2003 and
    December 31, 2002 and for the three and nine-month periods ended
    September 30, 2003 and 2002 ("interim periods") have been prepared in
    accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United
    States of America and are unaudited. The condensed financial statements
    reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) which
    are, in the opinion of management, necessary for the fair presentation of
    the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim
    periods. These condensed financial statements and notes should be read in
    conjunction with the financial statements and related notes as presented in
    the Company's 2002 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for
    the interim periods should not be considered indicative of results to be
    expected for the full year. Certain reclassifications have been made to 2002
    financial information to conform to the 2003 presentation.

    The Company conducts its business through one operating segment, U.S.
    Financial Services ("USFS"), and revenue reported by the Company is
    predominantly derived from external customers.

2.  RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

    ACCOUNTING FOR GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS

    During 2002, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board
    ("FASB") Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("FAS") No. 142,
    GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS ("FAS No.142"). Effective January 1,
    2002, the Company applied the non-amortization provision of the new
    standard, therefore, the Company's net income is comparable for all periods
    presented.

    The adoption of this standard resulted in an impairment loss of $101.8
    million which was recorded by the Company in the fourth quarter of 2002.
    This impairment loss represented the entire carrying amount of goodwill, net
    of accumulated amortization. This impairment charge was shown as a change in
    accounting principle on the December 31, 2002 Income Statement.

    In accordance with FAS No. 142, a transitional impairment loss for goodwill
    should be recognized in the first interim period of the year of initial
    adoption, regardless of the period in which it was measured. The aggregate
    amount of the accounting change should be included in restated net income of
    the first interim period, and each subsequent period of that year should be
    presented on the restated basis. As such, net income for the nine months
    ended September 30, 2002, has been restated to reflect the January 1, 2002
    impairment charge, which was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2002.

3.  NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

    In July 2003, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
    ("AICPA") issued Statement of Position ("SOP") 03-1, ACCOUNTING AND
    REPORTING BY INSURANCE ENTERPRISES FOR CERTAIN NONTRADITIONAL LONG-DURATION
    CONTRACTS AND FOR SEPARATE ACCOUNTS, which the Company intends to adopt on
    January 1, 2004. The impact on the financial statements is not known at this
    time.

    The Derivative Implementation Group ("DIG") responsible for issuing guidance
    on behalf of the FASB for implementation of FAS No. 133, ACCOUNTING FOR
    DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES recently issued Statement
    Implementation Issue No. B36, EMBEDDED DERIVATIVES: MODIFIED COINSURANCE
    ARRANGEMENTS AND DEBT INSTRUMENTS THAT INCORPORATE CREDIT RISK EXPOSURES
    THAT ARE UNRELATED OR ONLY PARTIALLY RELATED TO THE CREDIT WORTHINESS OF THE
    OBLIGOR UNDER THOSE INSTRUMENTS ("DIG B36"). Under this interpretation,
    modified coinsurance and coinsurance with funds withheld reinsurance
    agreements as well as other types of receivables and payables where interest
    is determined by reference to a pool of fixed maturity assets or total
    return debt index may be determined to contain embedded derivatives that are
    required to be bifurcated. The required date of adoption of DIG B36 for the
    Company is October 1, 2003. The Company has completed its evaluation of DIG
    B36 and determined that it has no investment or insurance products that are
    applicable to require implementation of the guidance, and therefore, the
    guidance will have no impact on the Company's financial position, results of
    operations or cash flows.

4.  DEFERRED POLICY ACQUISITION COSTS AND VALUE OF BUSINESS ACQUIRED

    Deferred Policy Acquisition Costs ("DAC") is an asset, which represents
    certain costs of acquiring certain insurance business, which are deferred
    and amortized. These costs, all of which vary with and are primarily related
    to the production of new and renewal business, consist principally of
    commissions, certain underwriting and contract issuance expenses, and
    certain agency expenses. Value of business acquired ("VOBA") is an asset,
    which represents the present value of estimated net cash flows embedded in
    the Company's contracts, which existed at the time the Company was acquired
    by ING. DAC and VOBA are evaluated for recoverability at each balance sheet
    date and these assets would be reduced to the extent that gross profits are
    inadequate to recover the asset.

    The amortization methodology varies by product type based upon two
    accounting standards: FAS No. 60, ACCOUNTING AND REPORTING BY INSURANCE
    ENTERPRISES ("FAS No. 60") and FAS No. 97, ACCOUNTING AND REPORTING BY
    INSURANCE ENTERPRISES FOR CERTAIN LONG-DURATION CONTRACTS AND REALIZED GAINS
    AND LOSSES FROM THE SALE OF INVESTMENTS ("FAS No. 97").

    Under FAS No. 60, acquisition costs for traditional life insurance products,
    which primarily include whole life and term life insurance contracts, are
    amortized over the premium payment period in proportion to the premium
    revenue recognition.

    Under FAS No. 97, acquisition costs for universal life and investment-type
    products, which include universal life policies and fixed and variable
    deferred annuities, are amortized over the

    emergence of estimated gross profits from surrender charges, investment
    margins, mortality and expense margins, asset-based fee income, and actual
    realized gains (losses) on investments. Amortization is adjusted
    retrospectively when estimates of current or future gross profits to be
    realized from a group of products are revised.

    VOBA activity for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 was as follows:

5.  INCOME TAXES

    The Company's effective tax rates for the three months ended September 30,
    2003 and September 30, 2002 were 24.1% and 37.1%, respectively. The
    Company's effective tax rates for the nine months ended September 30, 2003
    and 2002 were 22.7% and 36.4%, respectively. The decreases in effective tax
    rates resulted primarily from an increase in the deduction allowed for
    dividends received.

6.  COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES

    LITIGATION

    The Company is a party to threatened or pending lawsuits arising from the
    normal conduct of business. Due to the climate in insurance and business
    litigation, suits against the Company sometimes include claims for
    substantial compensatory, consequential or punitive damages and other types
    of relief. Moreover, certain claims are asserted as class actions,
    purporting to represent a group of similarly situated individuals. While it
    is not possible to forecast the outcome of such lawsuits, in light of
    existing insurance, reinsurance and established reserves, it is the opinion
    of management that the disposition of such lawsuits will not have a
    materially adverse effect on the Company's operations or financial position.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S NARRATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND
FINANCIAL CONDITION

OVERVIEW

The following narrative analysis of the results of operations and financial
condition presents a review of the ING Insurance Company of America ("IICA", or
the "Company") as of September 30, 2003 and December 31, 2002 and for the three
and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2003 and 2002. This review should be
read in conjunction with the condensed financial statements and other data
presented herein, as well as the "Management's Narrative Analysis of the Results
of Operations and Financial Condition" section contained in the Company's 2002
Annual Report on Form 10-K.

NATURE OF BUSINESS

The Company offers qualified and nonqualified annuity contracts that include a
variety of funding and payout options for individuals and employer sponsored
retirement plans qualified under Internal Revenue Code Section 403(b), as well
as nonqualified deferred compensation plans. Annuity contracts may be deferred
or immediate (payout annuities). These products also include programs offered to
qualified plans and nonqualified deferred compensation plans that package
administrative and record-keeping services along with a variety of investment
options, including affiliated and nonaffiliated mutual funds and variable and
fixed investment options.

RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

ACCOUNTING FOR GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS

During 2002, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB")
Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("FAS") No. 142, GOODWILL AND OTHER
INTANGIBLE ASSETS ("FAS No.142"). Effective January 1, 2002, the Company applied
the non-amortization provision of the new standard, therefore, the Company's net
income is comparable for all periods presented.

The adoption of this standard resulted in an impairment loss of $101.8 million,
which was recorded by the Company in the fourth quarter of 2002. This impairment
loss represented the entire carrying amount of goodwill, net of accumulated
amortization. This impairment charge was shown as a change in accounting
principle on the December 31, 2002 Income Statement.

In accordance with FAS No. 142, a transitional impairment loss for goodwill
should be recognized in the first interim period of the year of initial
adoption, regardless of the period in which it was measured. The aggregate
amount of the accounting change should be included in restated net income of the
first interim period, and each subsequent period of that year should be
presented on the restated basis. As such, net income for the nine months ended
September 30, 2002, has been restated to reflect the January 1, 2002 impairment
charge, which was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2002.

NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In July 2003, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants ("AICPA")
issued Statement of Position ("SOP") 03-1, ACCOUNTING AND REPORTING BY INSURANCE
ENTERPRISES FOR CERTAIN NONTRADITIONAL LONG-DURATION CONTRACTS AND FOR SEPARATE
ACCOUNTS, which the Company intends to adopt on January 1, 2004. The impact on
the financial statements is not known at this time.

guidance, and therefore, the guidance will have no impact on the Company's
financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

GENERAL

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States requires the use of estimates and
assumptions in certain circumstances that affect amounts reported in the
accompanying condensed financial statements and related footnotes. These
estimates and assumptions are evaluated on an on-going basis based on historical
developments, market conditions, industry trends and other information that is
reasonable under the circumstances. There can be no assurance that actual
results will conform to estimates and assumptions, and that reported results of
operations will not be materially adversely affected by the need to make future
accounting adjustments to reflect changes in these estimates and assumptions
from time to time.

The Company has identified the following estimates as critical in that they
involve a higher degree of judgment and are subject to a significant degree of
variability. In developing these estimates management makes subjective and
complex judgments that are inherently uncertain and subject to material change
as facts and circumstances develop. Although variability is inherent in these
estimates, management believes the amounts provided are appropriate based upon
the facts available upon compilation of the condensed financial statements.

INVESTMENT IMPAIRMENT TESTING

The Company reviews the general account investments for impairments by
considering the length of the time and the extent to which the fair value has
been less than amortized cost; the financial condition and near-term prospects
of the issuer; future economic conditions and market forecasts; and the
Company's intent and ability to retain the investment in the issuer for a period
of time sufficient to allow for recovery in fair value. Based on the facts and
circumstances of each case, management uses judgment in deciding whether any
calculated impairments are temporary or other than temporary. For those
impairments judged to be other than temporary, the Company reduces the carrying
value of those investments to the current fair value and records impairment
losses for the difference.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S NARRATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND
FINANCIAL CONDITION (continued)
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
AMORTIZATION OF DEFERRED ACQUISITION COSTS AND VALUE OF BUSINESS ACQUIRED

Deferred policy acquisition costs ("DAC") and value of business acquired
("VOBA") are amortized with interest over the life of the contracts (usually 25
years) in relation to the present value of estimated gross profits from
projected interest margins, asset-based fees, policy administration and
surrender charges less policy maintenance fees.

Changes in assumptions can have a significant impact on the calculation of
DAC/VOBA and its related amortization patterns. Due to the relative size of the
DAC/VOBA balance and the sensitivity of the calculation to minor changes in the
underlying assumptions and the related volatility that could result in the
reported DAC/VOBA balance, the Company performs a quarterly analysis of DAC/
VOBA. At each balance sheet date, actual historical gross profits are reflected
and expected future gross profits and related assumptions are evaluated for
continued reasonableness.

Any adjustment in estimated profit requires that the amortization rate be
revised retroactively to the date of policy or contract issuance ("unlocking"),
which could be significant. The cumulative difference related to prior periods
is recognized as a component of the current period's amortization, along with
amortization associated with the actual gross profits of the period. In general,
increases in estimated returns result in increased expected future profitability
and may lower the rate of amortization, while increases in lapse/surrender and
mortality assumptions or decreases in returns reduce the expected future
profitability of the underlying business and may increase the rate of
amortization.

One of the most significant assumptions involved in the estimation of future
gross profits for variable universal life and deferred annuity products is the
assumed return associated with future separate account performance. To reflect
the near-term and long-term volatility in the equity markets this assumption
involves a combination of near-term expectations and a long-term assumption
about market performance. The overall return generated by the separate account
is dependent on several factors, including the relative mix of the underlying
sub-accounts among bond funds and equity funds as well as equity sector
weightings.

FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION/RISK FACTORS

In connection with the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the Company cautions readers regarding certain
forward-looking statements contained in this report and in any other statements
made by, or on behalf of, the Company, whether or not in future filings with the
Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Forward-looking statements are
statements not based on historical information and which relate to future
operations, strategies, financial results, or other developments. Statements
using verbs such as "expect," "anticipate," "believe" or words of similar import
generally involve forward-looking statements. Without limiting the foregoing,
forward-looking statements include statements which represent the Company's
beliefs concerning future levels of sales and redemptions of the Company's
products, investment spreads and yields, or the earnings and profitability of
the Company's activities.

<Page>
ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S NARRATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND
FINANCIAL CONDITION (continued)
FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION/RISK FACTORS (continued)
Forward-looking statements are necessarily based on estimates and assumptions
that are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive
uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the Company's control
and many of which are subject to change. These uncertainties and contingencies
could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any
forward-looking statements made by, or on behalf of, the Company.

Whether or not actual results differ materially from forward-looking statements
may depend on numerous foreseeable and unforeseeable developments. Some may be
national in scope, such as general economic conditions, changes in tax law and
changes in interest rates (for additional information, see the Legislative
Initiatives section below). Some may relate to the insurance industry generally,
such as pricing competition, regulatory developments and industry consolidation.
Others may relate to the Company specifically, such as credit, volatility and
other risks associated with the Company's investment portfolio. Investors are
also directed to consider other risks and uncertainties discussed in documents
filed by the Company with the SEC. The Company disclaims any obligation to
update forward-looking information.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Fee income for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2003
decreased by $0.3 million and $2.5 million, respectively, compared to the same
periods in 2002. A substantial portion of the fee income on variable assets is
calculated based on assets under management. The decrease in fee income was
primarily due to a decrease in the variable inforce balance and a decrease in
the Company's average variable assets under management. The decrease in average
variable assets under management resulted from two factors: (1) during the first
three months of 2003 the equity markets suffered a decline compared to the same
period in 2002, the markets started to rebound during the second quarter; and
(2) during the market decline policyholders transferred assets from variable to
fixed options.

Net investment income increased $1.2 million and $1.0 million for the three and
nine months ended September 30, 2003, respectively, compared to the same periods
in 2002. The net investment income increased due to higher asset balances in the
three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2003 versus the comparative
periods in prior year; this increase was partially offset by lower investment
yields.

Net realized capital gains for the quarter ended September 30, 2003 decreased by
$0.3 million compared to the same quarter in 2002. Net realized capital gains
for the nine months ended September 30, 2003 were $4.1 million higher than the
comparative period in 2002. Net realized gains were primarily affected by a
decrease in the 10-year treasury rate between the comparative periods. A
significant variable affecting realized gains and losses is the 10-year treasury
yield. The average rate was 4.2% during the three month periods ended
September 30, 2002 and 2003. The average rate decreased from 4.7% to 3.9% for
the nine month periods ended September 30, 2002 and 2003, respectively. In a
declining rate environment, the market value of fixed maturities held in the
Company's portfolio increases assuming no credit deterioration. The increase in
net realized gains reflects the impact of this variable on the overall sale of
fixed maturities.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S NARRATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND
FINANCIAL CONDITION (continued)
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)
Interest credited and other benefits to policyholders for the three and nine
months ended September 30, 2003 decreased $0.8 million in contrast to the
comparative periods in 2002. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in
credited rates to policyholders and a decline in assets under management with
fixed options.

Underwriting, acquisition, and insurance expenses for the three months ended
September 30, 2003 increased by $0.3 million compared to the same period in
2002, the higher expenses are primarily due to an increase in general expenses
and a decrease in policy acquisition costs deferred. A decrease of $0.1 million
in the nine months ended September 30, 2003 compared to the nine months ended
September 30, 2002, was due to a decrease in general expenses and commissions
substantially offset by a decrease in policy acquisition costs deferred. The
reduction in general expenses was a result of lower allocation of expenses from
the Company's parent and from ING's company-wide cost reduction efforts.
Commissions decreased during the periods as a result of decreases in new and
renewal business generated during the three months ended September 30, 2003 as
compared to the same period in 2002.

Amortization of deferred policy acquisition costs and value of business acquired
for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2003, decreased by $5.3
million and $7.5 million, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2002.
Decreased amortization during the three and nine month periods ended
September 30, 2003 was primarily due to improved market and fund performance.
Amortization of long-duration products is recorded in proportion to actual and
estimated future gross profits. Estimated gross profits are computed based on
underlying assumptions related to the underlying contracts, including but not
limited to interest margins, mortality, lapse, premium persistency, expenses,
and asset growth. The decrease in the amortization of deferred policy
acquisition costs and value of insurance acquired reflects the impact of these
variables on the overall book of business.

The cumulative effect of the change in accounting principle for the nine months
ended September 30, 2002, was a loss of $101.8 million. As noted in the Recently
Adopted Accounting Standards section, the write down is related to FAS No. 142,
which addresses the value of goodwill and other intangible assets.

Net income, excluding change in accounting principle, increased by $4.4 million
and $7.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2003, as
compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2002. Higher earnings
for the three months ended September 30, 2003 compared to the same period in
2002 are due to higher net investment income and a decrease in amortization of
deferred policy acquisition costs and value of business acquired partially
offset by lower fee income. Higher year to date earnings are primarily the
result of increased net realized gains and net investment income partially
offset by a decrease in fee income.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

INVESTMENTS

FIXED MATURITIES

At September 30, 2003 and December 31, 2002, the Company's carrying value of
available for sale fixed maturities including securities pledged to creditors
(hereinafter referred to as "total fixed maturities") represented 100% of the
total general account invested assets for both periods. For the same periods,
$98.6 million, or 71.3% of total fixed maturities, and $118.2 million, or 91.2%
of total fixed maturities, respectively, supported experience-rated products.
Total fixed maturities reflected net unrealized capital gains of $7.0 million
and $8.0 million at September 30, 2003 and December 31, 2002, respectively.

It is management's objective that the portfolio of fixed maturities be of high
quality and be well diversified by market sector. The fixed maturities in the
Company's portfolio are generally rated by external rating agencies and, if not
externally rated, are rated by the Company on a basis believed to be similar to
that used by the rating agencies. The average quality rating of the Company's
fixed maturities portfolio was AA- at September 30, 2003 and December 31, 2002.

Fixed maturities rated BBB and below may have speculative characteristics and
changes in economic conditions or other circumstances are more likely to lead to
a weakened capacity of the issuer to make principal and interest payments than
is the case with higher rated fixed maturities.

(1)  Primarily U.S. dollar denominated

The Company analyzes the general account investments to determine whether there
has been an other than temporary decline in fair value below the amortized cost
basis in accordance with FAS No. 115, ACCOUNTING FOR CERTAIN INVESTMENTS IN DEBT
AND EQUITY SECURITIES. Management considers the length of the time and the
extent to which the fair value has been less than amortized cost; the financial
condition and near-term prospects of the issuer; future economic conditions and
market forecasts; and the Company's intent and ability to retain the investment
in the issuer for a period of time sufficient to allow for recovery in fair
value. If it is probable that all amounts due according to the contractual terms
of a fixed maturity investment will not be collected, an other than temporary
impairment is considered to have occurred.

When a decline in fair value is determined to be other than temporary, the
individual security is written down to fair value and the loss accounted for as
a realized loss.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Liquidity is the ability of the Company to generate sufficient cash flows to
meet the cash requirements of operating, investing, and financing activities.
The Company's principal sources of liquidity are product charges, investment
income and maturing investments. Primary uses of these funds are payments of
commissions and operating expenses, interest credits, investment purchases, as
well as withdrawals and surrenders.

                                       16
<Page>
ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S NARRATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND
FINANCIAL CONDITION (continued)
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES (continued)
Management believes that its sources of liquidity are adequate to meet the
Company's short-term cash obligations. The Company has entered into agreements
with ILIAC under which ILIAC has agreed to cause the Company to have sufficient
capital to meet certain capital and surplus levels.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners' ("NAIC") risk-based capital
requirements require insurance companies to calculate and report information
under a risk-based capital formula. These requirements are intended to allow
insurance regulators to monitor the capitalization of insurance companies based
upon the type and mixture of risks inherent in a Company's operations. The
formula includes components for asset risk, liability risk, interest rate
exposure, and other factors. The Company has complied with the NAIC's risk-based
capital reporting requirements. Amounts reported indicate that the Company has
total adjusted capital above all required capital levels.

LEGISLATIVE INITIATIVES

The Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 which was enacted in
the second quarter may impact the Company. The Act's provisions, which reduce
the tax rates on long-term capital gains and corporate dividends, impact the
relative competitiveness of the Company's products, especially variable
annuities.

Other legislative proposals under consideration include repealing the estate
tax, changing the taxation of products, changing life insurance company taxation
and making changes to nonqualified deferred compensation arrangements. Some of
these proposals, if enacted, could have a material effect on life insurance,
annuity and other retirement savings product sales.

The impact on the Company's tax position and products cannot be predicted.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

a)   The Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the
     participation of its management, including its Chief Executive Officer and
     Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure
     controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) of the
     Securities Exchange Act of 1934) as of the end of the period covered by
     this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the
     Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company's current
     disclosure controls and procedures are effective in ensuring that material
     information relating to the Company required to be disclosed in the
     Company's periodic SEC filings is made known to them in a timely manner.

b)   There has not been any change in the internal controls over financial
     reporting of the Company that occurred during the period covered by this
     report that has materially affected or is reasonably likely to materially
     affect these internal controls.

                          PART II.  OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

The Company is a party to threatened or pending lawsuits arising from the normal
conduct of business. Due to the climate in insurance and business litigation,
suits against the Company sometimes include claims for substantial compensatory,
consequential or punitive damages and other types of relief. Moreover, certain
claims are asserted as class actions, purporting to represent a group of
similarly situated individuals. While it is not possible to forecast the outcome
of such lawsuits, in light of existing insurance, reinsurance and established
reserves, it is the opinion of management that the disposition of such lawsuits
will not have a materially adverse effect on the Company's operations or
financial position.

As with many financial services companies, affiliates of the Company have
received requests for information from various governmental and self-regulatory
agencies in connection with investigations related to trading in investment
company shares. In each case, full cooperation and responses are being provided.
The Company is also reviewing its policies and procedures in this area.

                                                                       EXHIBIT A

                   AMENDMENT TO INVESTMENT ADVISORY AGREEMENT

This Amendment to Investment Advisory Agreement (this "Amendment") amends the
Investment Advisory Agreement between ING Investment Management LLC ("IIM") and
ING Insurance Company of America, formerly known as Aetna Insurance Company of
America ("Client"). This Amendment is dated as of August 26, 2003.

1.  BACKGROUND. IIM and Client are parties to an Investment Advisory Agreement,
    dated March 31, 2001, as amended (the "Agreement"), pursuant to which IIM
    provides Client with certain investment advisory services. IIM and Client
    wish to clarify the limited circumstances under which IIM may have custody
    of Client funds or securities under the Agreement. Although the parties do
    not intend by this Amendment to address whether or not Original Mortgage
    Documents (as defined below) are in fact securities, it is the intention of
    IIM and Client that, except as may be otherwise agreed from time to time,
    IIM will not have actual or constructive custody of Client funds or
    securities other than Original Mortgage Documents.
2.  AMENDMENT TO SECTION 3 OF THE AGREEMENT. Section 3 of the Agreement is
    hereby amended to add the following to the end of such Section:
   "Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3, except with
   regard such Original Mortgage Documents as are selected by IIM from time to
   time, and as may otherwise be agreed between IIM and Client:

    (a)   IIM shall not maintain physical custody of Client funds or securities;
          and
    (b)   IIM shall not have the power to direct any custodian or other third
          party to transfer Client funds or securities, except in the case of
          (i) transactions involving a delivery vs. payment or vice versa,
          (ii) free receipts into Client Accounts, (iii) transfers between
          Client's own accounts, (iv) transfers to satisfy margin or collateral
          calls by brokers or other counterparties, and (v) other transactions
          that would not reasonably be considered to result in actual or
          constructive custody of Client funds or securities.

   "Original Mortgage Documents" means original (a) mortgage notes,
   (b) certificates of participation where more than one entity has invested in
   the mortgage via a participation agreement, and (c) letters of credit, as
   applicable, that are provided from time to time by borrowers as additional
   security."
3.  AMENDMENT TO SECTION 6 OF THE AGREEMENT. The second sentence of Section 6 of
    the Agreement is hereby amended to add the language highlighted in italics
    below:
   "EXCEPT AS SPECIALLY CONTEMPLATED BY SECTION 3, IIM shall not MAINTAIN
   CUSTODY OF CLIENT FUNDS OR SECURITIES OR OTHERWISE act as custodian for the
   Account."
4.  AMENDMENT TO SECTION 9 OF THE AGREEMENT. Section 9 of the Agreement is
    hereby amended to read as follows:
   SECTION 9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY--In rendering services under this
   Agreement, IIM will not be subject to any liability to Client or to any other
   party for any act or omission of IIM except as a result of IIM's negligence,
   misconduct or violation of applicable law. Nothing herein shall in any way
   constitute a waiver or limitation of any rights of any party under applicable
   Federal or State law.

5.  AMENDED AGREEMENT. Except as specifically amended by this Amendment, each
    and every term of this Agreement remains in full force and effect.
