Standard Reinsurance Agreement Rma

The 2010 SRA defines risk sharing between the state and private insurance companies. Under the SRA, insurance companies can transfer liability liability to the government and withhold the benefits/losses of less risky policies. This risk transfer is done through a number of reinsurance funds managed by fcic. Within 30 days of closing sales for each crop, companies assign each policy they sell to one in three funds, assigned risk, development or trade, for each state. Each company then decides how much of the premiums (and the potential for losses/profits) should be retained in each reinsurance fund, subject to the minimum storage limits required for each fund.8 The share transferred (i.e. not withheld) is destined for the state. In total, a company must retain at least 35% of its portfolio.
