Tragically, the husband of someone my wife knows killed himself. God knows the turmoil that must have existed in his mind to cause him to do this but it's done. Rest in Peace to him. He came out of the Army several years ago and he has been treated for PTSD over that period of time and even recently was being offered treatment for it. Apparently, because it was suicide, the insurance companies are refusing to pay out. Does anybody know if there is any precedence for insurance companies paying out an insurance on a PTSD related death or alternatively, is there any other scheme where the widow can receive some form of payment because it was PTSD related? I'm not a friend. It's just that my wife knows the widow and any advice would be fed back through her. I understand that the widow could lose their home because of the tragic loss of her husband. That would be a terrible thing to happen after what has already happened.
