New York Life Required to Report the Number of Death Benefits They Have Not Paid

All life insurers licensed to do business in New York are now directed to report on how many death benefits they have not paid because they did not use the official government list of deaths to promptly identify when policyholders died, the New York Insurance Department announced today. To produce this report, the Department is requiring insurers to immediately begin using reliable available data to identify when policyholders have died and death benefits are due but unpaid. Meanwhile, the Department is working on a regulation to make this requirement permanent.
