To examine blockchain’s potential role in insurance, this white paper explores ways the technology can help life insurers simplify death claims processing, a process that requires an already traumatized beneficiary to undergo a time-consuming activity to process basic claims. We examine where a blockchain-based solution can combine the current death registration and the death claims processes into a single, simplified procedure requiring minimum intervention from multiple stakeholders. Apart from focusing on claims processing, the white paper also evaluates through a few representative use cases – how life insurers can adopt and creatively leverage blockchain for automating reinsurance claims, processing subrogation claims payments and ensuring auditability.
