Life Claim FAQs

  1. How long does it take to process a claim?

    If the policy has been in force for longer than two years, it is considered “Incontestable,” which means it will be paid as soon as all of the required documents are received and examined.

    If the policy has been in force less than two years, it is considered “Contestable” and will be subject to further review, which could increase the processing time.

    For more information about the claims filing process, visit the Life Claim Filing Instructions.

  2. Once my claim has been processed, how long will it take to receive my check?

    Typically, you will receive your check within 10 - 15 business days from the time your claim was processed. If you haven’t received your check within 30 days of the date your claim was processed, please contact our Customer Service Department.

  3. My policy has been in force less than two years, how can I expedite the processing time for my claim?

    The process can be expedited by completely and accurately completing all necessary portions of the claim form, including listing on the Claimant Statement all known medical providers who treated the insured in the last 5 years.

    For more information about the claims filing process, visit the Life Claim Filing Instructions.

  4. I’m filing a claim for accidental death benefits, how can I expedite the processing time?

    All accidental death benefits, regardless of how long the coverage has been in force, will be investigated to ensure the death meets the criteria of an accident as defined in the policy.

    The process can be expedited by providing copies of the following documents along with your completed claim forms, the certified death certificate (including cause and manner of death) and a copy of the obituary (if available):

    • Autopsy, toxicology, and police reports
    • A certified copy of the coroner’s report
  5. I’m filing a claim where the manner of death of the insured was homicide, how can I expedite the processing time?

    All claims where the manner of death is homicide will be investigated.

    The process can be expedited by providing copies of the following documents along with your completed claim forms, the certified death certificate (including cause and manner of death), and a copy of the obituary (if available):

    • Autopsy, toxicology, and police reports
    • A certified copy of the coroner’s report
  6. How do you determine who to pay?

    The application includes a section where the beneficiary is designated. Also, through the life of the policy, the insured may elect to change the beneficiary. These changes are recorded in our computer system. If no beneficiary is chosen, we will issue the proceeds to the estate of the insured, unless a Last Will and Testament is provided that identifies a recipient to the insurance proceeds. Should there not be an estate in place, we will require a document from the courts stating as such. Depending on your state, it might be called a “No Estate Affidavit,” “Small Estate Affidavit,” “Summary of Estate,” or something similar. If you are unsure how to obtain this document, please contact your local County Court Clerk.

    If the policy has been in force less than two years, it is considered “Contestable” and will be subject to further review, which could increase the processing time.

  2. Once my claim has been processed, how long will it take to receive my check?

    Typically, you will receive your check within 10 – 15 business days from the time your claim was processed. If you haven’t received your check within 30 days of the date your claim was processed, please contact our Customer Service Department.

  3. My policy has been in force less than two years, how can I expedite the processing time for my claim?

    The process can be expedited by providing itemized medical billing statements and completing all necessary portions of the claim form, including listing on the Claimant Statement all known medical providers who treated the insured in the last 4 years.

  4. Why do we request additional information on claims that are less than two years old?

    As with most insurance companies, claims submitted on policies that have been in effect less than two years require a more detailed examination.

  5. What is the difference between a UB-04 and a 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form?

    A UB-04 is typically a summary associated with hospital stays. A 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form is normally associated with clinic or physician visits. These forms are completed by and obtained from the provider in which the treatment was sought. The form numbers can be found at the bottom of the page.

  6. Why do we require both a UB-04 and itemized medical billing statements?

    The UB-04 has information on it that is not always on the itemized medical billings or other summaries, i.e. diagnosis and procedural codes.

  7. Why is additional verification via medical narratives (Doctor’s Notes) requested on accident claims?

    Many times the UB-04 or 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form will include diagnosis codes; however, these codes are not always fully descriptive of why the visit to the ER or physician took place. Narratives from those visits are helpful as they go into more detail of the observations and conversations that took place during the diagnosis and treatment of the injury. You can request a copy from the treatment facility.

  8. Is there a time frame in which treatment must be received after an Accidental Bodily Injury?

    Yes! The benefit for an accidental bodily injury is payable to an insured as long as the treatment is received within 72 hours from a qualified institution as defined by the policy. Always refer back to your policy for further information regarding benefit qualifications.

Health Claim FAQ

  1. How long does it take to process a claim?

    If the policy has been in force for longer than two years, it is considered “Incontestable,” which means it will be paid as soon as all of the required documents are received and examined.

    If the policy has been in force less than two years, it is considered “Contestable” and will be subject to further review, which could increase the processing time.

  2. Once my claim has been processed, how long will it take to receive my check?

    Typically, you will receive your check within 10 - 15 business days from the time your claim was processed. If you haven’t received your check within 30 days of the date your claim was processed, please contact our Customer Service Department.

    Hours of Operation:

    Monday – Friday

  3. My policy has been in force less than two years, how can I expedite the processing time for my claim?

    The process can be expedited by providing itemized medical billing statements and completing all necessary portions of the claim form, including listing on the Claimant Statement all known medical providers who treated the insured in the last 4 years.

  4. Why do we request additional information on claims that are less than two years old?

    As with most insurance companies, claims submitted on policies that have been in effect less than two years require a more detailed examination.

  5. What is the difference between a UB-04 and a CMS1500?

    A UB-04 is typically a summary associated with hospital stays. A CMS 1500 is normally associated with clinic or physician visits.

  6. Why do we require both a UB-04 and itemized medical billing statements?

    The UB-04 has information on it that is not always on the itemized medical billings or other summaries, i.e. diagnosis and procedural codes.

  7. Why is additional verification via medical narratives (Doctor’s Notes) requested on accident claims?

    Many times the UB-04 or CMS 1500 will include diagnosis codes; however, these codes are not always fully descriptive of why the visit to the ER or physician took place. Narratives from those visits are helpful as they go into more detail of the observations and conversations that took place during the diagnosis and treatment of the injury. You can request a copy from the treatment facility.

Please note: the claims process varies for different types of products. Therefore, processing times will vary and it may be necessary for us to request additional information in order to process your claim.

For any policy less than 2 years old, the claim will be subject to further review.

Life Claims FAQs

  1. How long does it take to process a claim?

    If the policy has been in force for longer than two years, it is considered “Incontestable,” which means it will be paid as soon as all of the required documents are received and examined.

    If the policy has been in force less than two years, it is considered “Contestable” and will be subject to further review, which could increase the processing time.

    For more information about the claims filing process, view the Life Claim Filing Instructions tab.

  2. Once my claim has been processed, how long will it take to receive my check?

    Typically, you will receive your check within 10 - 15 business days from the time your claim was processed. If you haven’t received your check within 30 days of the date your claim was processed, please contact our Customer Service Department at:

    For more information about the claims filing process, view the Life Claim Filing Instructions tab.

  4. I’m filing a claim for accidental death benefits, how can I expedite the processing time?

    All accidental death benefits, regardless of how long the coverage has been in force, will be investigated to ensure the death meets the criteria of an accident as defined in the policy.

    The process can be expedited by providing copies of the following documents:

    • Completed Claimant Form
    • Certified Death Certificate (including cause and manner of death) If your benefit amount is $10,000 or less a copy of Death Certificate is allowed
    • Obituary (if available)
    • Autopsy, toxicology, and police reports
    • A copy of the coroner’s report
  5. I’m filing a claim where the manner of death of the insured was homicide, how can I expedite the processing time?

    All claims where the manner of death is homicide will be investigated.

    The process can be expedited by providing copies of the following documents along with your completed claim forms, the certified death certificate (including cause and manner of death) and a copy of the obituary (if available):

    • Autopsy, toxicology, and police reports
    • A copy of the coroner’s report
  6. How do you determine who to pay?

    Beneficiary is designated by the policy holder when applying for the Life policy. Policyholders do have the ability to update beneficiary information at any point during the life of the policy. These changes are recorded in our computer system. If no beneficiary is chosen, we will issue the proceeds to the estate of the insured, unless a Last Will and Testament is provided that identifies a recipient to the insurance proceeds. Should there not be an estate in place, we will require a document from the courts stating as such. Depending on your state, it might be called a “No Estate Affidavit,” “Small Estate Affidavit,” “Summary of Estate,” or something similar. If you are unsure how to obtain this document, please contact your local County Court Clerk.

  7. How do I obtain a certified death certificate?

    Certified death certificates have either a raised seal or a multicolored signature seal from the county, city or state that issued the certificate. In addition, the original death certificate should contain the signature of an appropriate officer of the county, city or state. Typically a certified death certificate can be obtained by working through the Funeral Home or at the Department of Health or Vital Statistics of your local Government.

  3. What is the difference between a Link to file name "UB-04" and a Link to file name "1500 Health Insurance Claim Form"?

    A UB-04 is typically a summary associated with hospital stays. A 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form is normally associated with clinic or physician visits. These forms are completed by and obtained from the provider in which the treatment was sought. The form numbers can be found at the bottom of the page.

  4. Why do we require both a UB-04 and itemized medical billing statements with some health plan claims?

    The UB-04 has information on it that is not always on the itemized medical billings or other summaries, i.e. diagnosis and procedural codes.

  5. Why is additional verification via medical narratives (Doctor’s Notes) requested on some accident claims?

    Many times the UB-04 or 1500 Health Insurance Claim Form will include diagnosis codes; however, these codes are not always fully descriptive of why the visit to the ER or physician took place. Narratives from those visits are helpful as they go into more detail of the observations and conversations that took place during the diagnosis and treatment of the injury. You can request a copy from the treatment facility.

  6. Is there a time frame in which treatment must be received after an Accidental Bodily Injury?

    Yes! The benefit for an accidental bodily injury is payable to an insured as long as the treatment is received as defined by your policy from a qualified institution. ALWAYS REFER BACK TO YOUR POLICY FOR FURTHER INFORMATION REGARDING BENEFIT QUALIFICATIONS.
