Numeric Summary

Illustrations and Premium Limits

  • The NAIC Life Insurance Illustrations Model Regulation requires a basic illustration to consist of a numeric summary of the death benefits and values on three bases:

Here is an example.

  • The policy illustrated below is $100,000 specified amount with a $60 policy load, assessed monthly.
  • The guaranteed interest rate is 6% in the first year, 4% in renewal years.
  • The issue age is 45 and four risk classes are examined.
  • The two numbers listed under 1980 CSO and 2001 CSO are (i) the guaranteed maturity premium or GMP, i.e. that level premium paid at issue and annually thereafter which matures the policy for the specified amount (at attained age 95 in this case) based on contractual guarantees of mortality, interest, loads and charges and (ii) the 20th year cash value, i.e. the cash value at attained age 65.

  • Normally the format for these illustrations are left pretty much to the discretion of the company, but on the numeric summary, there also are two signed acknowledgments.
  • One is signed by the client stating that he has been told that these values are not guaranteed and can change any time, and another acknowledgment is signed by the agent saying that he has not presented any values that differ from or are in violation of the disciplined current scale.  (p36)
