Learn How to Deal With a Denied Life Insurance Claim

If you received a letter stating that your life insurance claim was denied and you believe it should not have been, you need to contact the insurance company to ask them to reconsider their decision. The letter you received should explain why your claim was denied.

To appeal a life insurance claim denial, contact the insurer first. The insurance company can explain why your claim was rejected, answer any questions, tell you what paperwork you need, and explain the appeals process.

Other options if your claim has been denied include:

  • Alternative Resolution: Consider pursuing arbitration or mediation in order to get your settlement money.

  • File a Complaint with the State: File a consumer complaint with the state’s department or attorney general. This could be a longer process and doesn’t always produce results; however state-level representation carries substantial weight.

  • Hire an Attorney: An attorney has the expertise to negotiate and navigate your denial. Their understanding of the law could be a powerful ally when going through the claim processes.

Although the claim denial may come during a time of emotional turmoil, it is important to act quickly and to understand your options. Depending on the option you choose, the process can take months to collect on the life insurance.
