Standard Lines Premiums

COMMERCIAL LINES INSURANCE

The commercial lines sector of the property/casualty insurance industry generally provides insurance products for businesses as opposed to the personal lines sector, which offers products for individuals. However, the division between commercial and personal coverages is not precise. Inland marine insurance, which is included in the commercial lines sector, may cover some personal property such as expensive jewelry, fine art and other items whose values are above the standard homeowners policy limits.

WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE AND EXCESS WORKERS COMPENSATION

Workers compensation insurance provides for the cost of medical care and rehabilitation for injured workers and lost wages and death benefits for the dependents of persons killed in work-related accidents. Workers compensation systems vary from state to state. Workers compensation combined ratios are expressed in two ways. Calendar year results reflect claim payments and changes in reserves for accidents that happened in that year or earlier. Accident year results only include losses from a particular year. Excess workers compensation, a coverage geared to employers that self-insure for workers compensation, comes into play when claims exceed a designated dollar amount.

REINSURANCE

Reinsurance is essentially insurance for insurance companies. It is a way for primary insurers to protect against unforeseen or extraordinary losses. Reinsurance also serves to limit liability on specific risks, to increase individual insurers' capacity to write business, and to help insurers stabilize their business in the face of the wide swings in profit and loss margins which are inherent in the insurance business.
