Filing an Accidental Death Claim

PW_AD092058
If someone dies due to an accident while covered under our accidental death (AD) or accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance benefits, a Life Insurance Claim Form should be completed and submitted to Anthem Life & Disability Insurance Company (Anthem Life), along with:  
a certified copy of the death certificate;
all enrollment forms/applications for that employee's accidental death coverage;
any beneficiary designations or change notifications.
 
In addition to these requirements, any available newspaper articles and police or coroner reports that provide details of the accident should also be provided. In some circumstances, we may need additional information to complete our processing. Anthem Life's Claims Center will request any additional information needed. 
If dismemberment benefits have already been paid as a result of the same accident that caused the death, those proceeds will be deducted from any benefit payable for the death under accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) coverage.  
If no beneficiary designation is on file, the beneficiary will be as stated in the insurance certificate.
