When I expected to receive life insurance benefits after my husband’s death, the insurance company instead returned the premiums and said that my husband did not qualify for coverage. What can I do now?
The first thing you should do is to consult with a lawyer with expertise in life insurance to determine whether the denial of the claim has any chance of being challenged. Also, the cheque refunding premiums should not be cashed. The insurer might construe that as an acceptance of their decision to void the policy.
