Life Insurance Companies Face Fight Over Death Benefits

November 16, 2011

In a recent Insurance & Technology article, Sutherland Partner Mary Jane Wilson-Bilik comments on state unclaimed property audits of major life insurance companies. According to the article, "Earlier this year many state regulators began insisting that insurers proactively identify beneficiaries of life insurance policies by running the Social Security Death Master File against their policy records." Wilson-Bilik states that while most companies feel that they have been in complete compliance with the law, they are willing to cooperate. However, Wilson-Bilik points out that there is nothing explicit in state insurance law that requires a company to run their business records against the master file.
