Dependency Check Investigations

If a surviving spouse is receiving lifetime disability or Workers' Compensation benefits based on marital status, a dependency check can determine whether the individual remains eligible or has remarried.

 

We can call or send out investigators to conduct a direct check at a beneficiary’s home, or conduct an indirect check, where neighbors may be interviewed. Whichever method is used, we will accurately determine whether a beneficiary is legitimately receiving benefits, according to specified policy requirements.
