    that math problem cant be solved without knowing how much in total can be surrendered. base policy cash values cannot be partially surrendered, they must either be borrowed or the policy fully surrendered. Only PUAR values bought with PUAR premium or PUAR values bought by dividends can be partially surrendered. so, you would need to know how much of the $1M cash value is base cash value & how much in PUAR values.

    I have always been a fan of partial surrenders if the person has no intention to repay & the larger death benefit reduction is not of great concern. Basically, surrenders/withdrawals to basis until basis fully recovered, then loans.
