Market Value Adjustment (MVA)

An adjustment formula applied to withdrawals made in excess of penalty free amounts, or full contract surrenders, during the time in which the annuity is still subject to the surrender period. The adjustment may decrease or increase the amount of your withdrawal, depending on the change in interest rates during the period since you first purchased your annuity.
