Answer . \nI do not believe there are any limitations. Contrary to belief, life insurance companies do like to pay the contractual death benefits. However you need the death certificate and obviously the policy would have needed to be in force at the time of death. 4lifeguild
Answer . You need to sign the death claim paperwork and provide a certificate of death. 4lifeguild
Why not? Now I'm not talking about some guy who got drunk and pissed one day and came home only to kill his wife (though I do think he should die) I'm talking about psycho paths who have killed time and time again for no reason. Seriously though why not? They would be giving back to society, and the…y are going to be killed any way so, why not? Anyway the crime rate is going up every where, why not give them something worse than death to fear. (MORE)

If an inmates signs over power of attorney to a cousin how do they collect on a parental death insurance policy?
They don't, power of attorney doesn't make you the beneficiary. Only the person who owns the policy (usually the person the policy is on) can change the beneficiaries for the policy.
How long does it take to collect on life insurance after you submit the paperwork and death certificate to the life insurance company?
It should be governed by statute.. Texas:. In general, the deadlines start to run when you submit the claim to the insurance company. Before that, the company has no duties. The insurance company must give you notice of receipt of the claim within 30 days. A telephone call to the company might, or… might not, be considered a claim. Any written acknowledgment of your conversation may, or may not, be considered notice of receipt of the claim. The insurance company has to tell you whether it accepts or rejects the claim within 15 days of receiving all information / documents reasonably requested. That would be the claimant's statement, the death certificate, the original policy or an explanation of the lack thereof, and the beneficiary's address and phone number. However, the statute provides for an addition 45 days if the company can't act within 15, so say 60 days. (So why does the statute say 15 days?) If the company rejects, it must give you the reasons. The company has to pay the claim within 60 days of receipt of all information / documents reasonably requested. If the company does not, the company has to pay 18 percent interest and attorney fees.. Most companies will issue a check in 2-3 weeks time after receiving all necessary claims info. (MORE)

To collect on a life insurance policy do you have to have the death certificate with the cause of death or can you use a death certificate that does not have the cause of death?
A death certificate with the cause of death is usually required on life insurance policies. It depends on the insurance company, the type of policy and what its terms are. An insurance company will most likely require a death certificate with the cause of death, because the cause of death is importa…nt in all life insurance claims. If the policy is one for accidental death benefits only, the company is entitled to know and the beneficiary has to prove that death was accidental. An insurer is entitled to know whether death occurred as a result of suicide, which might not be covered by a standard life insurance policy. Also, an insurance company is entitled to know if the death was a homicide that the beneficiary had something to do with, because that would render the beneficiary ineligible to collect benefits.

The beneficiary designated on the policy application is the recipient. Usually, a secondary ("contingent") beneficiary is also named in the event that the primary beneficiary dies before the insured. The estate of the deceased can also be the beneficiary if it is named as such or if there are no n…amed beneficiaries or if all of them die before the insured. In that event, the insurance proceeds become a part of the estate and are distributed according to the insured's Last Will and Testament. If the insured dies without a Will, the estate, including the insurance proceeds, pass according to state law according to the laws of intestate succession. (MORE)

it's the name of a unit in a prision that has inmates who were sentanced to death. //It depends on what state you live in.

There is no other prison in California that deals wi…th death penalty prisoners. Texas's death row is at Huntsville Prison, Huntsville, TX. I know of no state that has two separate prisons that houses death row inmates. For the women that are given the death penalty, they spend the years until execution in a women's prison, only transferring right before execution to the men's facility.// (MORE)
Texas has an execution rate that far exceeds any other state. Appellate court judges are elected and so need to please voters who are tough on crime. They don't delve too deeply into the complexities of any case which makes guilty verdicts easier to come by. There have been many, many reported case…s of an abject failure to provide adequate counsel. One infamous case has been reported extensively where the court record showed the defense counsel slept throughout the trial and didn't mount any defense. The defendant appealed and lost the appeal! The Fifth Circuit of the Federal Appeals Court, which is extremely pro-death penalty, ruled that a sleeping defense attorney did not violate a defendant's right to a fair trial. (MORE)
Suicide is covered by most life insurance companies. However, a certain amount of time must pass by from the time the policy is issued. Some states regulate the time that must elapse. The policy should cover this specific type of death. The delay can be two years.
You would contact the insurance company and they will send you the necessary paperwork. They will require a copy of the death certificate also.
Not specifically for a long term disability, but you can collect if you have a terminal illness.

Are execution dates set for Death Row inmates and under what circumstances might an inmate be executed before the set date?
Eventually, dates are set for the ones who don't die of old age waiting as their appeals wind through the court system. At least that's the way it is in California. It generally takes 25 years from the date of conviction to the date of execution. So obviously, way more of them die of natural causes …(and suicide) than actual execution. I can't think of any way in this country that an inmate could be executed before the set date. That is, unless the other prisoners get to him first. For example, Jeffrey Dahmer. (MORE)

If the insured dies of any causes (except suicide in the first two policy years) then benefit is payable.
It depends on the amount and the relationship to the person who died. Husband/wife it is something like $250,000, parent to child $100,000, no relation, $25,000. Figures may be off some, but in that range.
Typically, a formal proof of death is required to file a death claim. Death certificate and obituary normally suffice.
You may or may not actually need another life insurance policy for accidental death, but it is true that the more insurance you buy, the more money your dependents will receive in the event of your death. Of course, it is also true that the more insurance you buy, the more it will cost you in premiu…m payments, and if you do not suffer an accidental death, you will never receive anything for that money. So, it's a kind of gamble. Your dependents might come out ahead, or they might not. (MORE)

If they are found to be innocent after execution, then the family of the deceased may be entitled to compensation. If the inmate is still alive they are immediately released and are given a small amount of compensation.
That is highly dependent upon who the policy is through. Contact the insurance company you have it through to see if you have reviewed the policy and you still do not have your answer. Each company is different on their stipulations for what they will and will not pay out for. They may treat it as s…uicide or a mental illness that they do not pay out for. That is a grey area.
