SECTION 27-4.3-3


§ 27-4.3-3 Computation of cash surrender value.

(a) Any cash surrender value available under the policy in the event of default in a premium payment due on any policy anniversary, whether or not required by § 27-4.3-2, shall be an amount not less than the excess, if any, of the present value, on the anniversary, of the future guaranteed benefits which could have been provided for by the policy, including any existing paid up additions, if there had been no default, over the sum of:

(1) The then present value of the adjusted premiums as defined in § 27-4.3-5, corresponding to premiums which would have fallen due on and after the anniversary; and

(2) The amount of any indebtedness to the insurance company on the policy.

(b) For any policy issued on or after January 1, 1994, which provides supplemental life insurance or annuity benefits at the option of the insured and for an identifiable additional premium by rider or supplemental policy provision, the cash surrender value referred to in subsection (a) shall be an amount not less than the sum of the cash surrender value as defined in subsection (a) for a similar policy issued at the same age without the rider or supplemental policy provision and the cash surrender value as defined in subsection (a) for a policy which provides only the benefits provided by the rider or supplemental policy provision.

(c) For any family policy issued on or after January 1, 1994, which defines a primary insured and provides term insurance on the life of the spouse of the primary insured expiring before the spouse's attaining age seventy-one (71), the cash surrender value referred to in subsection (a) of this section shall be an amount not less than the sum of the cash surrender value as defined in subsection (a) for a similar policy issued at the same age without the term insurance on the life of the spouse and the cash surrender value as defined in subsection (a) for a policy which provides only the benefits provided by the term insurance on the life of the spouse.

(d) Any cash surrender value available within thirty (30) days after any policy anniversary under any policy paid up by completion of all premium payments or any policy continued under any paid up nonforfeiture benefit, whether or not required by § 27-4.3-2, shall be an amount not less than the present value, on the anniversary, of the future guaranteed benefits provided for by the policy, including any existing paid-up additions, decreased by any indebtedness to the insurance company on the policy.
