Excess Of Loss Reinsurance


Definition of "Excess of loss reinsurance"

Method whereby an insurer pays the amount of each claim for each risk up to a limit determined in advance and the reinsurer pays the amount of the claim above that limit up to a specific sum. For example, assume that an insurer issues automobile liability policies of $150,000 on any one risk and retains the first $50,000 of any risk. The insurer purchases excess loss reinsurance for $ 100,000 in excess of $50,000 on any one risk. The insurer pays the first $50,000 of all losses, and the reinsurer pays any excess amount up to a maximum of $100,000.
