Abstract

In this paper a stochastic model for disability insurance contracts is presented. The model is based on a discrete time non-homogeneous semi-Markov process to which the backward recurrence time process is joined. This permits us to study in a more complete way the disability evolution and to face the duration problem in a more effective way. The model is applied to a sample of contracts drawn at random from a mutual insurance company.
