How to calculate the net payment cost index:
1. Repeat steps 1a and 1b used to calculate the surrender cost index.
2. Subtract step 1b from 1a (1a - 1b = cost)
3. Repeat step 3 used to calculate the surrender cost index
4. Repeat step 4 used to calculate the surrender cost index
The calculations are similar, except step 1c of the surrender cost index is not used to calculate the net payment cost as the cash values of these policies are irrelevant.
