In 2015, in the market of non-life insurance, the ratio of claims paid versus premiums earned by insurance companies was 26.47%. This is calculated as the ratio of claims paid (ALL 3.5 billion) compared to premiums earned (ALL 13.05 billion). Claims paid pertain to 2015, but insurance policies may have beenmade earlier and consequently the premiums paid according to these policies may belong to previous years.

But, in the life insurance market, the ratio of claims paid to premiums received by insurance companies has been lower that is only 18.36%. This is calculated as the ratio of claims paid (ALL 188 million) versus premiums earned (ALL 1.03 billion). Even in this case the premiums paid according to these policies may belong to previous years.

The insurance market is very important because it allows the transfer of risks from a party to another. So individuals and businesses that do not want to bear the risk, may transfer it to an insurance company. This is an essential function helping in the smooth operation of an economic and financial market in the country.
