Hello,

When he passed did you notify the company and send a copy (not the original) of his policy and his death certificate?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

I notified Fla. Administrators. No death certificate was sent nor requested. I thought some type life insurance.

I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean by "...I thought some type life insurance..."

The Florida Carpenters Pension Fund may or may not have some kind of survivors' benefit, depending on what your late husband chose on his policy.

The pension fund is administered by Southern Benefits Administers, Inc. I would suggest you contact them with all the pertinent information. They are the ones who would know what your husband's choices were when he started receiving pension benefits. Here is their contact information:

I hope there will be some benefit for you, but only they know that.

Kind regards,
