How to Collect on Lost Life Insurance Policies

The parent has died. He had a life insurance policy with you listed as beneficiary. There is only one problem: the life insurance policy is absent. We write, an idea that has insurance. When you see the lack of assurance in the future, you are still entitled to receive compensation for death? Hopefully their account security, when you give a receiver and then lost in the search for life shortly after the insured (the who died during the six months to a year, for example), the use of the death benefit should not be a problem.

First, determine if the insured had term or permanent life insurance. If the insured has made long-term policy, you will receive compensation for death if he died before the contract expires. When he died, it will be after the expiry date of the policy, get nothing. If the insured had a permanent life policy, you receive the money if the death occurred during the policy was  valid  in which payments are made until the date of death was. If the death was a moment before you get benefits with interest from the date of death. When the insurance is invalid – that is resolved, the insured, insurance, before his death – there is a chance that you do not.

When a permanent life insurance void, most insurance companies, the change of status to permanent insurance, one of two options:  Advanced View  – The insurance company uses the cash value of life insurance a term with the same penalty interest purchased the value of the policy. The death benefit will continue to buy it for the longest period the cash value.  Pay Less  – The insurance will remain in place permanently, but will reduce the death benefit.

At State Farm, prolonged closure is the default for most permanent policies. If the policy lapses and the time extension expires before the insured dies, the policy is worthless and the beneficiary of life insurance will not take. If the insured dies before the deadline is extended, it receives the death benefit.

If the policy lapsed because the insured († late payment of premiums, with the result that the status of the extension period) will be available for the reception, the recipient continues to accumulate the total compensation for death, regardless of when the period extension had expired. The recipient should always check with the insurance pensions of death, date of death.

What if no one reports the death? If the insured dies and the insurance has not expired on the death of the policy. Insurance will take steps to find out why a policyholder stopped payments. If an insurance company, will stop receiving payments, sent letters to the insured to inform the policy which ended in May because of unpaid premiums.

If the letters unanswered, the company could launch a search for the insured. If empty, the company will then lapse the policy. When the beneficiary, not the front, it means a policy, unfortunately, pay the money in an insurance policy that never in his life and receivers of a dime. Therefore, a good idea to check to ensure that beneficiaries are aware of a life insurance policy you.
