be independent subordinators with finite expectations and denote their sum by C. Consider the classical risk process X(t) = x + ct - C(t). The ruin probability is given by the well-known Pollaczek–Khinchin formula. If ruin occurs, however, it will be caused by a jump of one of the subordinators C
. Formulae for the probability that ruin is caused by C
are derived. These formulae can be extended to perturbed risk processes of the type X(t) = x + ct - C(t) + Z(t), where Z is a Lévy process with mean 0 and no positive jumps.
