My spouse committed suicide and the insurance company refused to pay because of how she died. We had the insurance for five years. Can they do this?
Check the wording of the policy carefully. Most life insurance policies exclude payment if the death was as a result of suicide but only for a limited period of time. In the case of a policy that was in place for five years, suicide would not usually be a valid ground for denying the claim.
