• The expected present value of dividends is one of the classical stability criteria in actuarial risk theory. In this paper, we consider the two-layer $(a, b)$ dividend strategy when the risk process is modeled by a spectrally negative Lévy process, such a strategy has an increasing dividend rate when the surplus exceeds level $a>0$, and all of the excess over $b>a$ as lump sum dividend payments. Using fluctuation identities and scale functions, we obtain explicit formulas for the expected net present value of dividends until ruin and the Laplace transform of the time to ruin. Finally, numerical illustrations are present to show the impacts of parameters on the expected net present value.
