Death of a policy holder

I have had an ongoing insurance claim from a car accident for over 3 years, but recently the policyholder died.

Is there any chance they will not payout now or because it was an existing claim they have to go good for it?


It depends on state law, but it is unlikely that the deceased rights are extinguished.

Our understanding is that the estate of the decease will have rights under the policy.

Contact a local attorney to find out for sure.

Good Luck,
