Closed Block (continued)

timing of such maximum future earnings. If actual cumulative earnings in any given period are greater than the expected cumulative earnings, only the expected earnings will be recognized in income. Any excess of actual cumulative earnings over expected cumulative earnings will represent undistributed accumulated earnings attributable to policyholders and will be recorded as a policyholder dividend obligation to be paid to Closed Block policyholders as an additional policyholder dividend unless otherwise offset by future Closed Block performance that is less favorable than originally expected. As of December 31, 2001, no such additional policyholder dividends were recorded. If over such period, the actual cumulative earnings of the Closed Block are less than the expected cumulative earnings of the Closed Block, the Company will recognize only the actual earnings in income. However, the Company may change policyholder dividend scales in the future, which would be intended to increase future actual earnings until the actual cumulative earnings equal the expected cumulative earnings.

On November 13, 2001, Prudential Insurance’s Board of Directors acted to reduce dividends, effective January 1, 2002, on Closed Block policies to reflect unfavorable investment experience that has emerged since July 1, 2000, the date the Closed Block was originally funded. This action resulted in a $104 million reduction of the liability for policyholder dividends recognized in the year ended December 31, 2001.
