Step 3: Evaluation & Payment of Claim

After receiving the claim form and required documentation, the Claims Department will process your claim. If additional documentation is required or if the claim form is incomplete, you will be contacted in a timely manner.

When all required documentation is received and approved, and there are no special circumstances involved, the beneficiary can expect a claim check and death claim statement by mail in 1 to 3 weeks. For direct deposit recipients, within approximately one week of receipt of all required claim documentation, the death claim statement will be sent via secure encrypted email as confirmation that the direct deposit was successfully processed.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our Claims Department.


Note: If reporting the death of an annuity or IRA certificate holder, additional forms are required and special options are available for spouse beneficiaries. If a trust or an estate is the named beneficiary, please contact us for additional instructions.
