Missing Beneficiary Insurance
Regardless of how diligent a search often is, sometimes some identified heirs or lines of families simply cannot be traced, or the economics of continuing a trace for these lineage branches is simply not viable. In some other occasions, it may be thought that all of the heirs have been found though might be prudent to take out insurance on the off chance that there has possibly been an unrecorded event, such as an illegitimate birth or someone erroneously presumed deceased without the ability of proper documentation.

These occasions would ultimately affect any estate distributions, should these unknown but later proven heirs come forward and make a claim against the estate in the future. Therefore, an insurance policy, often referred to as Missing Beneficiary Insurance, may be needed to cover these potential future claims.

Generally, there is no time limit on claims being made or on the expiry dates for these types of policies, though there is often a limit payable by the insurers in the event of a claim or multiple claims. It might be useful to ensure an ‘escalator clause’ in the policy, whereby the insurers increase the indemnity by a certain percentage each year to provide for cases where significant time has elapsed since the policy was first issued.
