In this paper, we consider the classical surplus process with a constant dividend barrier and a dependence structure between the claim amounts and the inter-claim times. We derive an integro-differential equation with boundary conditions. Its solution is expressed as the Gerber-Shiu discounted penalty function in the absence of a dividend barrier plus a linear combination of a finite number of linearly independent particular solutions to the associated homogeneous integro-differential equation. Finally, we obtain an explicit solution when the claim amounts are exponentially distributed and we investigate the effects of dependence on ruin quantities.
