Model state statute that governs terms for surrender of individual deferred annuities and cash value life insurance. This model, adopted by most states in the late 1970s and early 1980s, requires that annuity and whole-life contracts have certain minimum values that are not forfeited by policyholders even if a policy is canceled. A formula is given for computing the present value, cash surrender value, and paid-up annuity benefits. The model requires insurers to state clearly if an annuity has limited or no death benefits.
