Periodic stipulated payments on variable annuities

A variable annuity policy requiring periodic stipulated payments to the insurer shall contain in substance the following provisions:

(1) A provision that there will be a period of grace of 30 days within which any stipulated payment to the insurer after the first may be made, during which period of grace the policy will continue in full force. The policy may include a statement of the basis for determining the date as of which any such payment received during the period of grace will be applied.

(2) A provision that, at any time within one year from the date of a default in making periodic stipulated payments to the insurer during the life of the annuitant, and unless the cash surrender value has been paid, the policy may be reinstated upon payment to the insurer of the overdue payments and all indebtedness to the insurer on the policy, with interest. The policy may include a statement of the basis for determining the date as of which the amount to cover such overdue payments and indebtedness will be applied.

(3) A provision specifying the options available in the event of a default in a periodic stipulated payment. Such options may include an option to surrender the policy for a cash value as determined by the policy, and shall include an option to receive a paid-up annuity if the policy is not surrendered for cash, the amount of the paid-up annuity being determined by applying the value of the policy at the annuity commencement date in accordance with the terms of the policy.
