Given the fast-paced change underway in regard to unclaimed property compliance, Insurance companies are faced with challenges to develop the capabilities necessary to comply with new unclaimed property regulations.
Some of the challenges facing Insurance companies such as changes in the regulatory landscape include the recently signed Global Resolution Agreements, Regulatory Settlement Agreements and approved regulations from a number of states including New York, Kentucky and Maryland, among others. All of the changing regulations require Insurance companies to perform periodic matches to the Social Security Death Master File (DMF) and compare their insurance and annuity contracts against State Policy Finder files.
