NRS 688A.361
Nonforfeiture provisions required in annuity contracts.

No contract of annuity may be delivered or issued for delivery in this state unless it contains in substance the following provisions, or corresponding provisions which in the opinion of the Commissioner are at least as favorable to the contract holder:


A statement that upon cessation of payment of considerations under a contract, or upon receipt of a written request submitted by an owner of a contract, the company will grant a paid-up annuity benefit on a plan stipulated in the contract of such value as is specified in NRS 688A.3631 to 688A.3637, inclusive, and 688A.366;


If a contract provides for a lump-sum settlement at maturity or any other time, a statement that upon surrender of the contract at or before the commencement of any annuity payments, the company will pay in lieu of any paid-up annuity benefit a cash surrender benefit of an amount specified in NRS 688A.3631, 688A.3633, 688A.3637 and 688A.366, and that the company may reserve the right to defer the payment of such cash surrender benefit for a period of not more than 6 months after demand therefor with surrender of the contract if the company submits a written request to and receives written approval for the deferral from the Commissioner. The request must address the necessity and equitability to all policyholders of the deferral;


A statement of the mortality table, if any, and interest rates used in calculating any minimum paid-up annuity, cash surrender or death benefits which are guaranteed under the contract, together with sufficient information to determine the amounts of those benefits; and


A statement that any paid-up annuity, cash surrender or death benefits which may be available under the contract are not less than the minimum benefits required by any statute of the state in which the contract is delivered and an explanation of the manner in which such benefits are altered by the existence of any additional amounts credited by the company to the contract, any indebtedness to the company on the contract or any prior withdrawals from or partial surrenders of the contract,
Ê except that any deferred annuity contract may provide that if no considerations have been received under a contract for a period of 2 full years, and the portion of the paid-up annuity benefit at maturity on the plan stipulated in the contract arising from considerations paid before that period would be less than $20 monthly, the company may terminate the contract by payment in cash of the then present value of such portion of the paid-up annuity benefit, calculated on the basis of the mortality table, if any, and interest rate specified in the contract for determining the paid-up annuity benefit, and by such payment shall be relieved of any further obligation under the contract.
