Ask the Life Insurance Expert

My mom and dad were divorced and she just passed. How does he claim the policy?

Sorry to hear about your mom.

[Let help you find affordable life insurance now.]

Your father needs the death certificate to make the claim. He just needs to call the life insurance company to let them know he's a beneficiary, and they'll give him instructions on what to send.

It doesn't matter that your parents were divorced. Whoever is named on the policy gets the money.
