2015-3 Whole Life CRVM Reserves 6-203
  • Our concern relates to the lack of clarity as to the meaning of this paragraph. The words "traditional plan" are particularly troubling. Does this mean a universal life policy, a whole life policy, or a term policy?
  • We are concerned that the vagueness of this wording will once again lead to different interpretations by the reader.
  • Also, we are concerned that this wording may be an attempt to hold the same reserves for universal life insurance and whole life insurance, which we strongly believe is incorrect.
  • Universal life and whole life are entirely different product structures, with different products features, and consumers buy these products for different reasons and purposes.
  • Therefore, reserves for these products should be different.
