Denial of Death Benefit Claims

(1) the policy is void due to misrepresentation or concealment in the policy application;
(2) the policy lapsed or terminated due to nonpayment of premium;
(3) a policy exclusion is applicable, and negates coverage;
(4) the claimant is not the lawful beneficiary under the policy terms; and
(5) for accidental death policies, the death was not caused by accident.
