Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to start by sending notice to the company that the annuity was closed without your consent or authorization and it seems to be a mistake on their part. Inform them that you want the annuity reinstated and penalties removed or you will be forced to pursue legal action for them negligently closing out the annuity and breaching their contract with you. If they refuse to fix their error, then you will have to file suit against them for breach of contract and pursue the matter in court for all of your losses suffered as a result of their breach.
