Insurance regulators across the nation from time-to-time focus their efforts on pursuing the joint investigation of a legal issue (e.g., brokers’ fees or title insurance matters) that is perceived by the regulators as representing an industry-wide compliance problem that is common to all states.

The latest subject of such a multi-jurisdiction investigation targets life insurance settlements. Regulators are in the midst of an extensive investigation and prosecution of life insurers’ practices with respect to the payment and settlement of life benefits.

The California Department of Insurance has just announced that it has negotiated a $17 million multi-state Regulatory Settlement Agreement with Prudential Insurance Company of America.

The settlement relates to Prudential’s alleged failure to pay benefits “even though they had knowledge of policyholder deaths from the Death Master file.”
