Aflac  (NYSE:AFL) Claims Ratio % Explanation

Claims Ratio % the percentage of claims costs incurred in relation to the premiums earned during the period. It is the equivalent of gross profit margin for an insurance company.

It's important to note that insurance is the business of managing risks and, to do that well, the insurer needs a thorough understanding of the incurred claims ratio. If the value is higher than expected or above established norms, then further investigation is required to figure out why that is (eg: fraud). If it is lower than expected, it could indicate irrelevant products or difficulties in claiming, possibly affecting customer satisfaction.
