AIG Life Insurance Settlement for Missing Beneficiaries and Lost Heirs

AIG Life Insurance Claims

Estimates are $2.4 billion dollars in death benefits owed beneficiaries and heirs of deceased life insurance policyholders goes unclaimed each year.

Heirs of deceased policyholders and annuity owners may be entitled to receive compensation arising from a 2012 legal settlement  between states and a number of underwriters.

Unclaimed property audits undertaken by a number of states revealed many major life insurance companies failed to pay death benefits to beneficiaries, despite having confirmation policyholders were deceased. Additionally, some companies continued charging premiums, deducting payments from the policies' cash reserves until depleted, at which time the policy would be cancelled.

Insurance Companies participating in the Global Life Insurance Settlement  include: AIG,  Allianz, Aviva, Forethought, Genworth, Hartford, ING, John Hancock, Lincoln National, MetLife, Midland National, Nationwide, New York Life, Northwest Mutual, Pacific Life, Prudential, Symetra, TIAA-CREF, Transamerica and Western & Southern.

Under the agreement {AIG Life Insurance Claims Settlement} AIG must restore the full value of impacted accounts, paying an estimated $25 million to $30 million on some 10,000 policies that are past due in California. Other states participating in the settlement received $11 million.

AIG further agreed to reform its business practices to ensure life insurance, annuity, and retained asset account benefits are promptly paid going forward. AIG will now regularly check the Social Security Administration's Death Index Master File to determine whether any of its life insurance policyholders, owners of annuities, and holders of retained asset accounts are, in fact,  deceased.

If AIG finds that a policyholder has died, it will attempt a search for beneficiaries. If beneficiaries cannot be located, AIG will then remit the policy proceeds to a government custodian, where they are held available to be reclaimed in the future.
