abstract = {In this paper the process of aggregated claims in a non-life insurance portfolio as defined in the classical model of risk theory is modified. The Compound Poisson process is replaced with a more general renewal risk process with interocurrence times of Erlangian type. We focus our analysis on the probability that the process of surplus reaches a certain level before ruin occurs, χ(u,b). Our main contribution is the generalization obtained in the computation of χ(u,b) for the case of interocurrence time between claims distributed as Erlang(2,β) and the individual claim amount as Erlang(n,γ).},
