We consider the Sparre Andersen risk process in the presence of a constant dividend barrier, and propose a new expected discounted penalty function which is different from that of Gerber and Shiu. We find that iteration mothed can be used to compute the values of expected discounted dividends until ruin and the new penalty function. Applying the new function and the recursion method proposed in Section 5, we obtain the arbitrary moments of discounted dividend payments until ruin.
