deposit premium

(1) In property and casualty insurance, the premium deposit required by the insurer on forms of insurance subject to periodic premium adjustment. Also called "provisional premium." (2) In reinsurance, the amount of premium (usually for an excess of loss reinsurance contract) that the ceding company pays to the reinsurer on a periodic basis during the term of the contract. This amount is generally determined as a percentage of the estimated amount of premium that the contract will produce based on the rate and estimated subject premium. It is often the same as the minimum premium but may be higher or lower. The deposit premium will be adjusted to the higher of the actual developed premium or the minimum premium after the actual subject premium has been determined by audit or reporting of the actual exposures insured during the coverage period.
