In any annual statement made hereafter by such insurer to the commissioner, it shall exhibit the amount of participating policyholders' surplus. Both participating and nonparticipating policies or contracts may provide that, in addition to any rate of interest guaranteed by the issuing insurer to be paid on deferred payments of the proceeds thereof, additional interest may be paid thereon at such rate as the insurer may annually declare; and the inclusion of such provision in any nonparticipating policy shall not be deemed to make the policy participating.
