Section 27-16-10

Policy provisions - Settlement of claims.

There shall be a provision that, when the policy becomes a claim by the death of the insured, settlement shall be made upon receipt of due proof of death and, at the insurer's option, surrender of the policy and premium receipt book and proof of interest of the claimant. If the insurer specifies a particular period prior to the expiration of which settlement shall be made, such period shall not exceed two months from the receipt of such proofs.
