How long does it take life insurance companies to contact you once someone has passed away?
One of my aunts left my sisters and I a small sum of money. She passed away about two weeks ago. Should I attempt to contact the company, or will they get in touch with me?
I would contact the company to ensure your info and beneficiary status are correct.
They are a business. If your aunt has an executor contact them, and if there are any other monies or items willed to you ensure the executor knows this.
It's paperwork, not drama.
Drama was when the fucktards had the wrong beneficiary for my late wifes SGLI. They couldn't disclose who the supposed beneficiaries were but they called me asking about people I KNEW neither of us ever met so I asked them pointed questions and then the stupid cunt found my records!
I suggest you take this opportunity to learn about wills, probate and inheritance. You will need the information later in life.
If you are an Amerifuck, get OFFICIAL copie(s) of the death certificate or at least one so you can show that and a copy of any other relevant paperwork.
Insurance company needs an official copy to verify death. They may or may not have one.
Really late response on my end, but thanks for the information. I guess I'll contact the executor tomorrow.
Its just all really awkward for me, I don't really know them well, and I don't want to sound like I'm hounding them. Another one of my aunts passed away last year and when she died people swarmed from the woodwork to get money that wasn't there. I guess this is different because I talk to my aunt that passed away about this, and this is something she wanted to give us.
