Call the insurance company and ask that they mail, fax or email a claim form to you. You can then make a life insurance claim as soon as you are able to obtain a certified copy of the death certificate which is required to make a claim. The insurance company will then issue a check made payable to the named beneficiaries or to the estate if there are no named beneficiaries.

How soon does beneficiary get paid from a life insurance company?

The beneficiary may usually be paid within 10-21 days after the insurance company has determined there is no fraud and the insurance payment is due as per the terms and conditions of the life insurance policy, and all necessary paperwork is in to them. The life insurance company usually requires the death certificate when making your claim. Make sure to review the "How to Make a Claim" section of the life insurance policy and contact the insurance company regarding what is necessary and who to send all pertinent information to in order to make your claim. If the claim is not paid in a timely manner, contact the insurance company and your insurance agent to follow-up. Also, you may want to contact the Department of Insurance in your state if you do not receive the Life Insurance Proceeds.
