Consider a risk reserve process under which the reserve can generate interest. For constants a and b such that a < b, we study the occupation time T-a,T-b(t), which is the total length of the time intervals up to time t during which the reserve is between a and b. We first present a general formula for piecewise deterministic Markov processes, which will be used for the computation of the Laplace transform of T-a,T-b(t). Explicit results are then given for the special case that claim sizes are exponentially distributed. The classical model is discussed in detail.
