The funeral home will have you sign a Funeral Home Assignment (FHA) if you are the named beneficiary. This allows them to be paid from the life insurance proceeds that go to the named beneficiary(ies). Keep in mind that only the proceeds for beneficiaries who sign the FHA will be used to pay the funeral home.
Please submit the Beneficiary Part 2 Claim Form and all additional required documents to the employer of your recently departed loved one. Then the employer will submit your claim documentation along with their claim form and employment eligibility information to us directly.
After we receive the claim documents from the employer, we will immediately begin the process of reviewing your claim. Our claims team will contact you if we need additional information.
After we receive all of the required information, we will process the claim within 7 business days. The sooner you submit the required information, the sooner we can process the claim. Collecting the required information is typically what delays the process. That’s why it’s important to correctly fill out everything and submit all of the required information as soon as possible.
