Allianz Life Insurance Company Of North America Key Developments

Florida Announces a $4.7 Million Multi-State, Multi-Agency Life Claim Settlement Agreement with Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America and Allianz Life Insurance Company of New York

The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (Office), Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS), and the Florida Office of the Attorney General (AG) announced that a $4.7 million life claim settlement agreement has been reached with the Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America and Allianz Life Insurance Company of New York (Allianz). It is the 16th overall settlement reached by the three agencies with the cooperation of the industry in an ongoing investigation of illegal business practices under the laws of Florida. The settlement agreement with the companies and other similar insurers focuses on their one-sided use of the Social Security Administration's Death Master File (DMF) to stop paying a deceased person's annuity, but not use the same information to find and begin paying the deceased's family or other beneficiaries for life insurance policies. Allianz has agreed to implement business reforms correcting this practice and to make a payment, which will be disbursed among the participating states. Florida's allocation of the $4.7 million payment is expected to be more than $409,000, which covers the costs of the investigation and future compliance monitoring. The multi-state examination was conducted by North Dakota, which served as the managing lead state, Florida, California, Illinois, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. The Allianz companies deny any wrongdoing and represent they are comparing at least quarterly the complete DMF to their list of policyholders and are using a good faith effort to locate both policyholders and beneficiaries.
