After notification of a death the payments on the annuity may be placed on "hold" while the policy is reviewed. If a payment was made to the annuitant after the date of death and the payments were only due while the annuitant was living the payment will need to be recovered.
If there are remaining payments to be made to the beneficiary or the estate (if there is no named beneficiary), American General will send additional forms to be completed and returned. When the completed forms are returned and processed the beneficiary or estate will receive a payment that includes any payments that were held and the beneficiary or estate will then continue to receive future payments as they become due.
