When the insured passes away, the policyholder gives the Life Insurance Company the death certificate and other pertinent documents so that the beneficiary can receive the death benefit of the life insurance policy.


To file a claim for death benefits, the beneficiary of a life insurance policy should contact a local agent or go online to the company's website. Some companies give beneficiaries a packet of documents and instructions, but first, ask them to submit a form telling them of the death..
