Why Do Life Insurance Claims Get Denied For Beneficiaries Of A Policy?

My wife passed away recently and my children and I are the beneficiaries of her life insurance policy, which she purchased a few months before her death. The insurance company seems to be making excuses not to pay out, and they keep asking for access to more medical records. Why are they doing this to us?
Life Insurance - Question 12
They are looking for information to determine whether they can find a way to deny the claim based on material misrepresentation. When a death occurs within a few months of the policy being issued the suspicion levels are high and insurers will not rush to a decision to pay until a complete investigation is carried out.
