If a transaction involves a replacement, the existing insurer shall comply with this section.


The existing insurer shall retain and be able to produce all replacement notifications received, indexed by the replacing insurer, until the later of:


the fifth anniversary of the date of receipt of the notification; or


the date of conclusion of the next regular examination conducted by the insurance regulatory authority of the existing insurer’s state of domicile.


The existing insurer shall send a letter to the policy or contract owner regarding the owner’s right to receive information regarding the existing policy or contract values. The letter must include, if available, an in force illustration or, if an in force illustration cannot be produced not later than the fifth business day after the date of receipt of a notice that an existing policy or contract is being replaced, a policy summary. The information must be provided not later than the fifth business day after the date of receipt of the request from the policy or contract owner.


On receipt of a request to borrow, surrender, or withdraw any policy values, the existing insurer shall send a notice advising the policy owner that the release of policy values may affect the guaranteed elements, nonguaranteed elements, face amount, or surrender value of the policy from which the values are released. The notice must be sent separately from the payment if the payment is sent to any person other than the policy owner. In the case of consecutive automatic premium loans, the insurer is only required to send the notice at the time of the first loan.
