Default ROP Disability Policy reserves

Good afternoon everyone.

I'm working on valuation for a product which provides standard long term disability benefits, with a partial return of premium at any policy anniversary upon election or all premiums at age 65 (with a claims offset)

For sake of example, lets just throw out 3,000 dollars a month, 60 day elimination, two year benefit period.
I calculate my standard active life disability reserve from the 85 CIDA table and call it a day there.

I also calculate a reserve for the ROP benefit, relatively straightforward as well.

The issue that's cropped up is: do I sum these reserves? Or do I just hold the higher one (ROP). Any claims the policyholder incurs offset the ROP, so as long as I hold enough to cover that I should be fine?

Let me know if any of you have done valuation on something similar.

In the aggregate the claims offset will be capped and will not exceed the premium. So if prem paid to date is 5000 and a claim is 20000, only 5000 of ROP is offset. Typical to make an assumption as to the % of premium that will not be returned due to claims. That adj % is included in the ROP reserve calculation and the total reserve is the sum of the two.

The Adj % is based on the probability of having a claim (incidence) so it increases by duration
