Death Certificates

When filing a life insurance claim should documents be received from the insurance company before sending the death certificate?

If you want to be sure your claim gets paid, and not denied, get

the death certificate before you send anything to the insurance

company. Many times we see death certificates that state causes of

death, such as "head trauma...due to intoxication", that are not

accurate but will certainly get the claim denied. If you get the

death certificate first you can deal with any issues of improper

reporting. I work at the Center for Life Insurance Disputes and we

help clients collect death benefits.
