Writers of physicians professional liability (PPL) claims-made coverage typically offer a death, disability, and retirement (DDR) provision within their policy language, stating that, in the event of one of these three described events, an extended reporting endorsement (ERE) will be provided to the insured without additional premium charge. The current methodology for deriving an indicated DDR reserve is time-consuming, leveraged, and uncertain as a result of its reliance on calendar period projections up to 50 years beyond the evaluation date. This monograph proposes a fundamentally different methodology for developing an indicated DDR reserve that addresses these concerns.
