In order for a life insurance claim to be considered, two items must be provided.
The first is a valid and properly completed death certificate. The death certificate must list the name of the deceased, the date of death, location, and other important information. It is important to provide an original death certificate and any copies must clearly indicate they are copies.
The second item required is the policy documents that the life insurance company holds. It is usually best to provide any updated information concerning yourself or the deceased at this time. The insurance company will need to have all the appropriate forms completed, signed and dated.
Having both of these items is necessary to make a life insurance claim. It is important to ensure accuracy when providing documentation and to follow the steps that the insurance company outlines in order to make the process as smooth as possible.
