Aviva payout goes to voters

POLICYHOLDERS at insurance group Aviva are being sent voting packs outlining the proposed &ldquo;reattribution&rdquo; of surplus funds at the company.<br /><br />Aviva is asking its customers to accept payments of a minimum of &pound;200 to forego any future share of surplus cash. Those who vote &ldquo;yes&rdquo; will receive payments in November 2009.<br /><br />The deal, which has been recommended by the policyholders&rsquo; advocate, affects those with polices in two with-profits funds &ndash; CGNU Life and CULAC. Ninety per cent of those in line for a payment will receive a tax free payout between &pound;200 and &pound;1,150.
