Purchasing a life insurance policy is an investment in the financial security of your loved ones in the event of your death. When you purchase life insurance, you do so under the assumption that your family will collect the benefits of your plan in a timely fashion after you pass away.
Shockingly, recent investigations by 60 Minutes as well as other news outlets revealed that many life insurance policy holders have had their claims unfairly denied by the insurance companies. These investigations have revealed that billions of dollars in life insurance claims are being denied, or remain uncollected, every year.
Life insurance benefits can be purchased either through individual policies, through an employer, or through any other sort of specialty life insurance product. Families rely on these benefits after the death of a loved one, which makes it all the more unfortunate when claims to life insurance benefits are denied.
At Daggett Shuler Law, we handle life insurance claims and work to secure the life insurance benefits you deserve. Below are a few points to keep in mind:
- Stay Organized: In the event of a death in the family, it is important that you present all of your life insurance documents in a timely, organized fashion in order to secure the benefits you need. Keep your paperwork organized and in a sport where someone can find it.
- Speak With Your Family: Review the contents and location of all of your important life insurance papers with your loved ones and beneficiaries. By doing this, you ensure that everyone will be on the same page in the event of an emergency, and that your benefits will not be jeopardized.
- Review Your Policy: Over the many years that some life insurance policies are in existence, circumstances change which could require a review of your policy. This review should include reviewing your designated beneficiaries. If not reviewed, your policy could contain a deceased or unintended beneficiary. Without reviewing, you could be left in a situation in a situation where state law determines where your policies are directed, which may not be consistent with your intent.
