Regulation 200 and Life Insurance Death Benefits

An investigation by the New York State Department of Financial Services resulted in the return of more than $1,000,000,000 of unpaid life insurance benefits to consumers nationwide. New York State Law requires that life insurer’s perform frequent and regular checks against the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File (DMF) and pay death benefits to named beneficiaries under life insurance policies.

In the Bipartisan Budget Deal of 2013, Congress directed the United States Department of Commerce to develop a certification program that enables persons who meet specified criteria to continue to have access to the Social Security Administration’s DMF.
