I surrendered a "wise" life insurance contract during 1999 and received my 1099-R. The amount reported in box 5 "Employee contributions or insurance premiums" is about $2,000 less than the total premiums I paid in over the years. I have all the quarterly statements and most cancelled checks to support my number.

Other than an error on the part of the ins co., is there any reason that box 5 and my total premiums shouldn't agree?
