Tex. Ins. Code Section 1101.205
Disclosure of Credited Interest Rate Decrease After Issuance of Policy


If an insurer decreases the credited interest rate paid on a policy’s accumulation value, the insurer must provide annually a written notice to the policy owner:




the new current credited interest rate;


the previous credited interest rate;


the minimum credited interest rate stated in the policy; and


the effective date of the change; and


including a prominent display of the new age and year at which the policy will lapse based on all changes to non-guaranteed charges and the credited interest rate if there are no changes to payments or coverage.


The notice under Subsection (a) must include the insurer’s telephone number and the following statement placed prominently on the front of the notice:
“YOU SHOULD KNOW: This decrease may change the value of your policy and may change how long your policy will last unless you increase your premium payments or reduce your coverage. Ask your insurance company for an in-force illustration that shows the effect of this change on your policy and discuss with your agent or financial advisor other options that are available to you.”


Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, this section does not apply to or require disclosures for a variable universal or indexed life insurance policy.
