Announcing CLAIMCHECK Powered by Directors Choice Assignment Services

ABILENE, TX – Funeral Directors Life is proud to announce the launch of CLAIMCHECK™ powered by Directors Choice Assignment Services, a division dedicated to providing expedited payments for assigned life insurance policies. Since 2007, Directors Choice Assignment Services has offered advance payment on life insurance policy assignments for funeral homes and the families they serve. With recent updates to the service, Funeral Directors Life has launched a new name and a new look for the new and improved service: CLAIMCHECK.

“Our new name, CLAIMCHECK, is simple, direct, and easy to explain to families,” said Terry Groban, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Funeral Directors Life. “We wanted a name that reflects exactly what we do for families…provide a check for their claim. We recently released a completely new, easy-to-use online assignment process, simpler fee structure, and less paperwork for funeral home clients. We felt that with these new and improved processes, now was the time to launch a new name, look, and feel to better align with the improved service to funeral homes and families.”

As a division of Funeral Directors Life, CLAIMCHECK is now accessible through the Funeral Directors Life Online Access portal, a feature that will help mutual customers streamline their administrative processes.

“Funeral homes and the families they serve deserve peace of mind when using a life insurance assignment company,” said Kris Seale, President and CEO of Funeral Directors Life. “As a division of Funeral Directors Life, CLAIMCHECK shares in our mission to offer clients the ‘best, most-respected service in the funeral profession.’ Our commitment is to go above and beyond to exceed the expectations of our customers and make the life insurance assignment process faster, easier, and more convenient for everyone involved. With CLAIMCHECK, funeral directors and the families they serve can rest assured that their claims are taken care of.”

“We realize that the last thing you want to do as a funeral director is spend valuable time chasing down insurance companies for payment on life insurance claims,” said Michelle Morgan, Director of Sales & Marketing for CLAIMCHECK. “That is why we are here. We want to make it as simple as possible to get paid for the work you do.”

CLAIMCHECK is also pleased to offer a drastically reduced rate and same-day payment on partner preneed policies administered by Funeral Directors Life/Funeral Agency. “This is a huge benefit to Texas funeral directors who often have to wait several weeks for death certificates and must meet reconciliation requirements on preneed policies,” added Morgan.
