Senator Zeldin Comments on DFS Investigation into Superstorm Sandy Insurance Claims

"Mother Nature wreaked havoc on the lives of many Third Senate District residents this past October. Our communities stepped up to assist each other through the challenges that resulted. Amongst these great responders, many insurance companies did the right thing by their customers quickly and effectively settling extensive claims. Unfortunately, some insurance companies have been grossly underperforming in a manner that is highly questionable. The delays, lowball offers and poor customer service concern me as Chairman of the Senate Consumer Protection Committee and as the Senator representing many of these victims."

Check To See If You Are Entitled To An Unpaid Life Insurance Policy

MORE THAN $665 MILLION IN UNCLAIMED LIFE INSURANCE BENEFITS PAID TO DATE AS A RESULT OF STATE INVESTIGATIONAn investigation started by the Department of Financial Services in July 2011 has resulted in more than $665 million being paid to life insurance beneficiaries who were unaware that they were entitled to money from insurance companies. Before DFS put in place new regulations in 2012, insurance companies did not regularly seek out beneficiaries to pay death benefits, but instead waited for someone to make a claim. However, a significant number of people are not aware that they are named on a life insurance policy by a relative and so do not make a claim.
