Example Ratings for Specific Insurance Types (Life and Public Liability)
This area of SchemeServe is more complex than most others. In order for you to make the most out of using our Help Guide for developing your own rates, it would be best if you read all the parts of this guide in order. To help you with this they are listed in numerical order in the “See Also” section of each page. You can click on a link to take you to section 1 and then move through logically at your own pace.
These example ratings are provided for information purposes only. Each Scheme and Insurer will require a specific rating table based on your company's unique needs.
Example 1: Life Rating
Tip: You can enter multiple columns for each combination of question-answers you would like to rate on, so for example, on a life insurance scheme your first column might be "Answer:SmokerYesNo" and your second column "Answer:Age". This would allow you to create higher rates for smokers above a certain age.
Based on the information above the rating table would look something like this:
Example 2: Public Liability
In another example you might want to determine a Public Liability Indemnity Limit based on the level of cover required and you want to set different premiums for each, £2,000,000 limit £250 and £5,000,000 limit £500. In this case, the entry in the rating matrix would be structured as below;
