It took a cold, hard corpse to get a life insurance company to hand over the cold hard cash. In a desperate attempt to finally get their insurance payout, the family hauled his corpse to an Old Mutual branch after weeks of stalling.The family physically took matters into their own hands, driving to the mortuary and working with the funeral company to transport the body.“We thought, if the documents are not giving them enough answers, maybe the body will,” said Ntombenhle Mhlongo, while speaking to News 24 in South Africa.
Imagine having to carry your dead loved one to the office to actually receive your insurance pay out. What a PR nightmare, I guess this family won out in the end due to some good old fashion ingenuity and persistence. If you have a decent agent and a reputable Life Insurance company you can avoid these types of issues, but if you don't at least now you have a blue print on how to get the money they owe you.
