Note 8. Reinsurance

 

In the normal course of business, the Company seeks to limit its exposure to loss on any single insured life and to recover a portion of benefits paid by ceding mortality risk to other insurance enterprises or reinsurers under indemnity reinsurance agreements, primarily quota share coverage and coinsurance agreements. The maximum amount of mortality risk retained by the Company is approximately $1,000 on single and joint life policies.

Indemnity reinsurance agreements do not relieve the Company from its obligations to contract owners. Failure of reinsurers to honor their obligations could result in losses to the Company. The Company regularly evaluates the financial condition of its reinsurers so as to minimize its exposure to significant losses from reinsurer insolvencies. At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, reinsurance receivables (payables) were $31 and ($31), respectively. The Company has a reinsurance reserve of $35 and $43 at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

In addition, the Company seeks to limit its exposure to guaranteed benefit features contained in certain variable annuity contracts. Specifically, the Company reinsures certain GMIB and GMDB provisions to the extent reinsurance capacity is available in the marketplace. At March 31, 2012, 55% and 7% of the account value for variable annuity contracts containing GMIB and GMDB provisions, respectively, were reinsured. At December 31, 2011, 56% and 7% of the account value for variable annuity contracts containing GMIB and GMDB provisions, respectively, were reinsured.
