2015 ORS 743.295¹
Effect of certain life insurance and disability benefits on minimum nonforfeiture amounts

(1) For an annuity policy that includes, by rider or supplemental contract provision, both annuity benefits and life insurance benefits that exceed the greater of cash surrender benefits or a return of the gross considerations with interest, the minimum nonforfeiture benefits shall equal the sum of the minimum nonforfeiture benefits for the annuity portion and the minimum nonforfeiture benefits, if any, for the life insurance portion, computed as if each portion were a separate policy.

(2) Notwithstanding ORS 743.284 (Computation of benefits) and 743.287 (Commencement of annuity payments at optional maturity dates), additional benefits payable in the event of total and permanent disability, as reversionary annuity or deferred reversionary annuity benefits, or as other policy benefits additional to life insurance, endowment and annuity benefits, and considerations for all such additional benefits, shall be disregarded in ascertaining the minimum nonforfeiture amounts and paid-up annuity, cash surrender and death benefits required by the Standard Nonforfeiture Law for Individual Deferred Annuities. The inclusion of such benefits may not be required in any paid-up benefits unless the additional benefits would separately require minimum nonforfeiture amounts and paid-up annuity, cash surrender and death benefits. [1977 c.320 §8; 2003 c.370 §8]
