Attorney General Beshear to Act to Protect Kentuckians’ Insurance Rights

Attorney General Andy Beshear

Kentucky families deserve to have case heard before Supreme Court

FRANKFORT, KY. – “I was outraged to learn that the Kentucky Department of Insurance had turned its back on thousands of Kentuckians and their families by refusing to defend the Kentucky Unclaimed Life Insurance Benefits Act, which requires insurance companies to notify heirs when a policyholder passes away.

Despite serving as the state’s chief lawyer, my office was not consulted by the Department. Rather, the Department acted in a highly unusual manner, dropping a fully briefed case at the last minute. Because of the Department’s reckless actions, this may be an uphill battle, but if the Department of Insurance is going to abandon its duty to protect Kentuckians, the Office of the Attorney General is going to step in.”
