    Generally, when a policy insured dies, the policy beneficiaries (sometimes the policy owner) contact the life insurance company and receive the carrier’s death claim form. That form is filled out and returned with the certificate of death and the newspaper obituary. It can take between 30 and 60 days to receive the policy proceeds.

    Some companies pay out the death claim within weeks, while with other companies it can take a couple of months. When you fill out the death claim form, be careful to fill in all the required information so that it will not be held up in processing. Also, ordering a certified death certificate ASAP will also help the life insurance money be paid out more quickly.
