Ultimate Net Loss (UNL)
The loss amount, including covered loss adjustment expenses (LAE), against which the retention and the reinsurance limits apply.

Underwriting Year of Experience
Underwriting result based on written premiums and ultimate losses from loss events falling within the same accounting period, where the accounting period is the period covered by the insurance policy or reinsurance agreement, regardless of when the premiums and losses are actually reported, booked or paid.  For example, the 1999 underwriting year includes results in calendar year 1999 and all future calendar years on business bound in 1999.  Compare with Accident Year of Experience and Calendar Year of Experience.

Unknown Accumulation Cover

Unusual Expenses
In life reinsurance, non-routine expenses of the ceding company for claims investigation, legal defense or rescission actions.  The reinsurer typically agrees to pay such expenses as distinct from punitive, exemplary or other noncontractual expenses which it does not agree to pay.
