How to Avoid Delay in the Payment of Life Insurance Proceeds

Delay in the Payment of Life Insurance Proceeds Attorney

A life insurance company should pay life insurance proceeds within 30 days from the date all necessary documents to the insurance company.

There are a number of reasons why a life insurance claim is delayed but most are grounded in the life insurance company’s need to have enough documents to make a decision to deny or pay benefits. The information can include:

  • Medical records,
  • Pharmacy records,
  • Accident reports,
  • Autopsy reports, and
  • Toxicology reports.

However, there are other reasons for delay. These can include:

  • The failure of the insured to provide the correct information on the life insurance application 
  • The failure to provide the correct and complete information requested by the life insurance company as part of the life insurance claim,
  • The failure to get a guardian appointed for a minor, and
  • The failure of the insured to make a proper beneficiary designation.
