Genworth Life Insurance Settlement for Missing Beneficiaries and Lost Heirs

Genworth 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.
