Tex. Ins. Code Section 1107.004
Optional Termination Provision


Notwithstanding the requirements of Section 1107.003 (Required Nonforfeiture Provisions), an annuity contract may provide that the company has the option to terminate the contract by making a cash payment of the then present value of that portion of the paid-up annuity benefit if:


no considerations are received under the contract for two years; and


at maturity, payments on the portion of the paid-up annuity benefit on the plan stipulated in the contract attributable to considerations paid before that period would be less than $20 each month.


If an annuity contract contains a provision permitted under Subsection (a):


the present value of a portion of a paid-up annuity benefit paid under that provision must be computed on the basis of the mortality table, if any, and interest rates specified in the contract for determining the paid-up annuity benefit; and


a payment made under that provision relieves the company of any further obligation under the contract.
