N.J. Admin. Code § 11:4-33.3 - Requirements

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) In addition to the basic policy reserve required under 17B:19-8, a life insurer is also required by 17B:19-8 to establish an excess interest reserve whenever the insurer has committed to crediting interest to policy values for any period of time that extends beyond the valuation date at a rate that exceeds the maximum valuation interest rate.
(b) The amount of the excess interest reserve required equals the total amount of the excess interest commitment, discounted to the valuation date using an interest rate not greater than the maximum rate prescribed under 17B:19-8.
(c) Upon written request by an insurer to the Commissioner, the Commissioner may determine that the excess interest reserve calculated on that portion of the policy value encumbered by a policy loan is not required. In making such determination, the Commissioner shall consider the following:
1. The relationship between any minimum guaranteed interest rate, the maximum valuation interest rate and interest rate commitment; and
2. Such other information which the Commissioner deems necessary to make a determination.
