Reporting a Life Claim

There are three methods for reporting a death of a person insured by a State Farm® life policy or annuity:

Contact an Agent

Although you may report a death claim to any agent, the agent of record will contact the beneficiary designated in the policy.

Report Online

You can submit an online form to begin the life claims process for death benefits (the online Report a Death form is not eligible for New Brunswick, Canada residents).

Contact Life Claims Directly

Call Life Claims directly — 877-524-497 — select Option 2
