House Floor Amendment No. 2
Adds reference to:
215 ILCS 5/224from Ch. 73, par. 836

Further amends the Illinois Insurance Code in the provision concerning standard provisions for life policies. Provides that the policy may require that due proof of the death of the insured shall consist of a certified copy of the death certificate of the insured, or other lawful evidence providing equivalent information, and proof of the claimant's interest in the proceeds. Provides that interest shall accrue on the proceeds payable because of the death of the insured, from date of death, at the rate of 10% annually (rather than 9%) on the total amount payable or the face amount if payments are to be made in installments until the total payment or first installment is paid, unless payment is made within 31 (rather than 15) days from the latest of certain happenings to occur (rather than the date of receipt by the company of due proof of loss).
