LL.M. – 1988

An interpleader case occurs when an insurance company is willing to pay out life insurance proceeds, but due to the possibility that it could end up having to pay twice for the same death, it wants a court to tell it which person to pay. Usually, these cases arise when two people assert competing claims to the same death benefits, and the law is not 100% clear on who is legally entitled to the money. Many times disputed claims that are not settled end up in interpleader litigation.

Interpleader Cases

Disputed claims come in two varieties: those where the insurance company already paid the death benefits, but they were paid to the wrong person; and those where two or more people claim the same death benefits, but the insurance company hasn’t paid the claim to anyone yet. The vast majority of disputed claims fall into the second category, though we sometimes see claims that were paid to the wrong person.

Disputed Claims

Life insurance companies are obligated to pay claims timely, usually within 30 to 90 days after they receive a valid claim and proof of death. The exact deadline is set by the laws of each state. A delayed claim is one where the insurance company has not paid a claim within the time limits set by law. Sometimes the delay is legitimate, and sometimes it’s not. There can be significant penalties if the delay is improper.

Delayed Claims

A denied claim is one where an insurance company refuses to pay because it believes the insured or policy owner did something wrong. For example, the insurance company may argue that the policy owner failed to timely pay premiums, the insured person didn’t disclose pertinent medical information during the application process, or some other reason allows them to break their promise to pay the claim.

ERISA Claims

Most insurance benefits offered through employment are governed by a federal law known as ERISA. Unlike private insurance policies, claims governed by ERISA are subject to very specific, restrictive rules. For example, if a claim for benefits is denied, most ERISA policies only allow 60 or 90 days for an appeal. If an appeal is not taken within that time frame, the claim may be lost forever. Furthermore, appeals must be handled with extreme care because a court can only consider evidence and arguments submitted with the appeal.

AD&D Claims

Accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance is supposed to pay when a person is injured or killed in an accident. However, virtually every insurance policy attempts to limit which accidents are covered. Most insurers refuse to pay AD&D claims if the insured was intoxicated, if the injury was self-inflicted, or if the accident can be tied to a medical condition — even if the death is ruled an accident by a medical examiner. These types of claims are often debatable, and insurers routinely take advantage of these loopholes to wrongly deny AD&D claims.
