Claim Forms – The Company, upon receipt of a written notice of claim, will furnish to the claimant such forms as are usually furnished by it for filing proofs of loss. If such forms are not furnished within 15 days after the giving of such notice, the claimant shall be deemed to have complied with the requirements of this Plan by submitting, within the time fixed in this Plan for filing proofs of loss, written proof showing the occurrence, nature and extent of the loss for which claim is made.
Proofs of Loss – Written proof of loss must be furnished to The Company at its said office in case of claim for loss for which this plan provides any periodic payment contingent upon continuing loss within 90 days after termination of each period for which The Company is liable and in case of claim for any other loss within 90 days after the date of such loss. Failure to furnish proof within the time required shall not invalidate nor reduce any claim if it is not reasonably possible to give proof within such time, provided proof is furnished as soon as reasonably possible.
Time of Payment of Claims – Indemnities payable under the plan for any loss other than loss for which the plan provides any periodic will be paid immediately upon receipt of due written proof of such loss. Subject to due written proof of loss, all accrued indemnities for loss for which the plan provides periodic payment will be paid at the expiration of each four weeks during the continuance of the period for which The Company is liable, and any balance remaining unpaid upon the termination of liability will be paid immediately upon receipt of due written proof.
Payment of Claims – Indemnity for loss of life will be payable in accordance without the beneficiary designation and the provisions respecting such payment which may be prescribed herein and effective at the time of payment. If no such designation or provision is then effective, such indemnity shall be payable to the estate of the Insured Person. Any other accrued indemnities unpaid at the Insured Person’s death may, at the option of The Company, be paid either to such beneficiary or to such estate. All other indemnities will be payable to the Insured Person. If any indemnity of the policy shall be payable to the estate of an Insured Person, or to an Insured Person who is a minor or otherwise not competent to give a valid release, The Company may pay such indemnity, up to an amount not exceeding $1000 to any relative by blood or connection by marriage of the Insured Person who is deemed by The Company to be equitably entitled thereto. Any payment made by The Company in good faith pursuant to this provision shall fully discharge The Company to the extent of such payment. Subject to any written direction of the Insured Person all or a portion of any indemnities provided by this plan on account of Hospital, nursing, medical or surgical service may, at The Company’s option and unless the Insured Person requests otherwise in writing not later than at the time for filing proof of such loss, be paid directly to the Hospital or person rendering such services, but it is not required that the service be rendered by a particular Hospital or person.
