TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Kansas is getting more than a half million dollars from settlements over insurance company death benefit practices.

They involve seven insurance companies, includingING, New York Life, Lincoln National, TransAmerica, TIAA-CREF, Midland, and Aviva and Global Atlantic.

Under the settlements, the companies will pay a total of $510,000.

They also agree to use the social security death master file database to identify deceased life insurance policyholders, so they can pay beneficiaries promptly.
