                            ``(iii) any contract which is held under a 
                        plan described in section 401(a) or 403(a),

                        employer upon the termination of a plan 
                        described in section 401(a) or 403(a) and is 
                        held by the employer until all amounts under 
                        such contract are distributed to the employee 
                        for whom such contract was purchased or the 
                        employee's beneficiary.

        plus
            ``(2) the premiums paid (as defined in section 7702(f)(1))

prescribe.''.
