Consider a nonstandard renewal risk model in which claims and interarrival times form a sequence of independent and identically distributed random pairs, with each pair obeying arbitrary dependence or size-dependence structure. In the case of heavy-tailed claims, we obtain the asymptotic behavior of finite-time ruin probability with the uniformity in time in some infinite regions.
