TWIA Posts 2023 Rate Adequacy AnalysisPublished on: June 26, 2023
TWIA’s 2023 Rate Adequacy Analysis indicates that TWIA’s current rates are inadequate by 20 percent for residential coverage and 22 percent for commercial coverage.
The Rate Adequacy Analysis is an estimate prepared by TWIA’s actuarial staff of whether rates are sufficient to cover the Association’s operating expenses and its expected losses from claims. The 2023 Analysis shows TWIA’s rates are less adequate than a year ago, attributed primarily to the rising cost of reinsurance.
|YEAR||RESIDENTIAL RATE INADEQUACY||COMMERCIAL RATE INADEQUACY|
TWIA’s Rate Adequacy Analysis consists of several PDF documents and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. The complete 2023 TWIA Rate Adequacy Analysis is now available.
-State law requires TWIA to post a rate adequacy analysis on its website 14 days prior to the date the TWIA Board of Directors votes on a rate filing.
