You are very entitled. But they do not have to tell any information about the policy, without consent of the insured.

Yes, if the insured person has passed and you are the beneficiary, you should call the insurance company and go through their steps to claim the benefit. It is the responsibility of someone that knows the Insured has passed to inform the Insurance Company. If no one tells them, they will assume that the insured no longer wants the policy and they will cancel it. It will require you to show a signed sealed death certificate and possibly other documents. It is sometimes different for each company. They then will issue a check to the person(s) listed on the policy as the beneficiary.

It is the responsibility of the person holding the life insurance policy to keep the beneficiary data updated as necessary. In the scenario in the question, the ex girlfriend was listed as the beneficiary ... and will be awarded the proceeds from the policy. Unfortunately, there is little the spouse can do to stop that. The beneficiary designation is binding and will hold up in a court of law.

You can only collect on the life insurance if you were awarded this at time of divorce. I was awarded the ability to take out a life insurance policy on my ex. as I receive a military retirement which only exists if he is alive. After his death, it would stop, therefore I have the life insurance policy.

Supplemental Security Insurance/Income. A form of SS benefits that are awarded to persons who do not qualify for regular SS or SSD benefits yet are in need of assistance due to specific reasons.

Life insurance is where you pay premiums periodically for a set number of years and then when you pass away the value of your life insurance policy is awarded to the beneficiary you choose (usually a spouse or your children) to pay for your outstanding debts, funeral, tuition, retirement, etc. so they don't have to pay for those expenses out-of-pocket.

The employer does not pay unemployment benefits. The employer pays unemployment insurance premiums to the State of lllinois. When the employee is terminated, the employee applies for unemployment benefits with the State of Illinois. The state determines if the employee is eligible for benefits and, if the employee is awarded benefits, those benefits are paid and monitored by the State of Illinois.

There are two circumstances in which you would have to repay benefits once you qualify for Social Security disability benefits:The first is if you own an individual Disability policy that includes a Social Insurance offset benefit. Social Insurance benefits are benefits that the insurance company pays on a disability claim, but will offset dollar-for-dollar with social security benefits.The second is if someone receiving benefits from a group Disability policy is eligible for social security benefits. Every group policy will have a provision in the contract that explains how benefits will be handled when a claimant is eligible for social security benefits. As much as group policies are great because they are less expensive and usually can be obtained without medical underwriting, the contract itself is not as good. In a sense, you get what you pay for. Most group disability policies will offset dollar-for-dollar with any social security benefits received, including personal and family benefits. In many situations the amount you will receive from the actual disability insurance company will be minimal.More specific to the question being asked - it can take a long time for social security benefits to be approved and paid. Therefore, many times the insurance companies will pay out benefits during months in which a claimant was technically eligible for social security benefits. Once the social security benefits are approved and paid, the claimant will be expected to repay the insurance company for all benefits paid that would otherwise have been offset. A claimant will not be expected to repay benefits for months in which they were not eligible for social security disability benefits.

Malpractice insurance is not something a patient would purchase. Malpractice insurance is a product that the surgeon who performed the operation should possess. His insurance will cover any damages awarded.

You have to be able, willing, and looking for work, to receive unemployment compensation benefits.

You can apply for unemployment benefits, but it is up to the Department of Employment Security if they will award benefits or not. However, if you gave notice because you had another joblined up, you probably will not be awarded benefits.

When you are awarded Social Security disability benefits, you do not receive benefits beginning on your onset date. Rather, there is a 5 month "waiting period" before benefits begin. As a practical matter, however, it is often a 6 month waiting period. This is because the waiting period is 5 full months of disability. So if you have partial month, that month simply doesn't count. For example, if you became unable to work on the 2nd day of the month, that whole first month would not count, since it is a partial month of disability. So the effective waiting period can be as long as six months before benefits are due. For SSI benefits, there is no waiting period. Benefits accrue beginning the day you file for benefits.

No, they are protected from creditor judgments under federal statutes. However, all Social Security benefits awarded to a non custodial parent are subject to garnishment for child support obligations.

If it was after the early 1940's, it was for being wounded or killed in combat. If the individual is deceased, you can contact the military for a copy of his service record. It should record the where and when of the award.
