TITLE 17B - INSURANCE
Section 17B:19-4 - Preliminary term insurance; amount of reserve
17B:19-4. Preliminary term insurance; amount of reserve
This section applies to life insurance policies, other than policies for which the reserve liabilities are valued on the basis of the provisions of the standard valuation law contained in section 17B:19-8, which were previously issued by insurers doing business in this state and which provide for not more than one year preliminary term insurance by incorporating in the provision thereof specifying the premium consideration to be received a clause plainly showing that the first year's insurance or part thereof under the policies is term insurance, purchased by the whole or a part of the premium to be received during the first policy year.
If the premium charged for the preliminary term insurance under any such policy issued prior to January 1, 1920 did not exceed that charged at the same time for like insurance under a twenty-payment life preliminary term policy of the same insurer, issued at the same age, or if the premium charged for the preliminary term insurance under any such policy issued on or after January 1, 1920 did not exceed 150% of the net premium therefor, computed according to the table of mortality and the rate of interest adopted by the insurer, as herein provided, such policy may be valued according to its terms on the mortality and interest bases herein provided.
The reserve held on every other such policy shall be equal to that of a similar policy, issued at the same age, which does not provide for preliminary term insurance.
