insurance reserves

Definition

A stated amount or percent of liquid assets that an insurer must have on hand that will satisfy all claims from in-force insurance policies and other outstanding liabilities. Reserve limits are established by state regulatory agencies which calculate reserves as a percent of the total present value of in-force insurance less the present value of future premiums to be received plus interest.
