About Life Insurance
Life insurance is a type of insurance that offers benefits to a person’s selected beneficiaries after they pass away. Term life insurance provides coverage during a specific period of time, while whole life insurance offers protection throughout a person’s lifetime. These policies provide financial support as families mourn the loss of a loved one and can provide peace of mind while the policyholder lives.
Why Might An Insurance Company Deny A Claim?
Unfortunately, there are circumstances where a person’s loved ones will not receive benefits after they pass, even with a life insurance policy in place. Insurance providers may deny a claim for a variety of reasons, including:
- The policy does not cover the specific type of death.
- The policyholder did not list a beneficiary.
- The life insurance policy had lapsed due to the lack of payment.
- The policyholder did not disclose important information, such as medical conditions, behaviors like tobacco use, past traffic violations, work in a dangerous occupation or other details.
- The policyholder died shortly after taking out the life insurance policy, during the “contestability period.”
While insurance companies often have valid reasons for denying claims, sometimes, they unfairly delay or deny a claim. Beneficiaries can dispute this denial through the appeals process to fight for the benefits they deserve.
