  • Ruin probabilities in a controlled discrete-time risk process with a Markov chain interest are studied. To reduce the risk of ruin there is a possibility to reinsure a part or the whole reserve. Recursive and
    integral equations for ruin probabilities are given. Generalized
    Lundberg inequalities for the ruin probabilities are derived given a
    constant stationary policy. The relationships between these inequalities
    are discussed. To illustrate these results some numerical examples are
