However, interest on unpaid death benefit is not guaranteed, therefore interest may be less than expected and the actual payout period may be shorter than the selected period.

However, interest on unpaid surrender payment is not guaranteed, therefore interest may be less than expected and the actual payout period may be shorter than the selected period.
