You should expect to receive forms and information in 5 to 10 day. Once the Death Certificate and forms have been returned payment should be issued in the same time frame. If your insurer offers a checkbook instead of just one check, dont be afraid, it may be a useful tool.

You can receive advice for filing an insurance claim online at websites such as Huffington Post, USAA, and Yahoo! Financial. You can also contact the company you have insurance through and they should help you with the process.

An insurance claim is the official act of asking an insurance company to make a payment according to the terms of an insurance policy. This is an important act because without it, there would be no way to receive compensation for covered damages. Most insurers issue instructions for filing a claim with their policy documentation. It usually involves a call to their claims department and the dispatch of an insurance adjuster to evaluate the claim. After the adjuster makes a recommendation, the insurance company either denies the claim or approves it for the amount the adjuster determined appropriate. Most companies have an appeal process that helps the insured have more input if the payment is insufficient.

This depends upon the financial firm from where you have taken your insurance. Most of the time you get claim within 15 - 20 Days

No. That is two different issues. Filing a claim is part of a legally binding contract. Filing suit is a civil action in itself.
