Life Insurance Claims
The death of a loved one can be a complex, confusing, and emotionally difficult time for the people left behind. During the grieving process, few immediately consider financial matters. However, the decedent often leaves behind family members that depended on them for some type of financial support. If they had a life insurance policy in place, it is important to act as soon as possible. The State of Florida requires that life insurance policy benefits be collected within five (5) years from the time of death.
The two basic types of life insurance are:
- Term life insurance: the policy owner pays a premium and a designated beneficiary receives the face amount of the policy upon death
- Cash value life insurance: the policy owner invests money into a savings account
