The above numbers are calculated with (a) no bonus, (b) bonus rates for each year of policy (up to 20 years) if known or (c) with an average bonus rate.
It tells if your surrender value is taxable or not.
It allows you to compare paid-up and surrender options. it has some useful notes on bonus rates and some info on when to do what (along the lines of the blog post). Relevant interesting links are also included.
