I just got an email a few minutes ago. A client died in a car accident two weeks ago and I helped his widow complete the claim forms and make sure she really didn’t have to deal with the process.
Today’s email from MONY Life simply said:
This is to inform you that we have received the requirements from the beneficiary.
We are happy to advise that the claim was approved for payment today and the check is being sent direct to the beneficiary.
Check amount: $250,239.41
Bottom line. This isn’t about me and it really isn’t even about the man who took out the life insurance. It’s about his widow and the fact that there is at least one thing she won’t have to worry about.
