What is needed to start a claim for life insurance benefits?

A copy of a certified death certificate is needed, along with the completed WEA Trust Life Insurance Claim Form, which we can provide for you when you contact us. In the State of Wisconsin, the death certificate is printed on security paper, has a raised seal, and shows the signature of the Local or State Registrar.

How are life insurance benefits paid?

WEA Trust life insurance benefits are paid in a lump sum and, generally the proceeds you receive as a beneficiary due to the death of the insured person, aren't taxable. Please be sure to consult with an attorney and/or tax professional. 

Once WEA Trust receives a copy of a certified death certificate and the required documentation, life insurance benefits will be processed and paid within 7-14 business days. Benefit payments happen most quickly when deposited directly into a bank account, typically within a few days.
