PROOF OF LOSS - The claimant must send the Company, or its designated representative, Proof of Loss within ninety (90) days after a covered Loss occurs or as soon as reasonably possible. Failure to furnish such proof within the time required shall not invalidate nor reduce any claim if it was not reasonably possible to give proof within such time, provided such proof is furnished as soon as reasonably possible and in no event, except in the absence of legal capacity, later than one year from the time proof is otherwise required.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION AND AUTOPSY - The Company, or its designated representative, at its own expense, have the right to have You examined as often as reasonable necessary while a claim is pending. The Company, or its designated representative, also has the right to have an autopsy made unless prohibited by law.

TIME OF PAYMENT OF CLAIMS - Benefits payable under this Certificate for any Loss other than Loss for which this Certificate provides any periodic payment will be paid immediately upon receipt of due written Proof of such Loss.

All claims shall be paid within thirty (30) days following receipt by the Company of due Proof of Loss. Failure to pay within such period shall entitle the claimant to interest at the rate of six (6) percent per annum from the thirtieth (30th) day after receipt of such Proof of Loss to the date of late payment, provided that interest amounting to less than one dollar need not be paid.
