Financial and Insurance Information

Act 30205/2014

In May 2014 the Congress of the Republic of Peru approved a legal measure facilitating access to financial, pension and insurance information for legal probate.

As a result of this now statutory provision, legal heirs can obtain the information on life insurance policies, private-sector pension funds and deposits or other financial products, which appears on the certified copies of death certificates.

Thus, certified copies or filing information of death certificates issued by the offices of the National Identity and Civil Status Registry (Reniec) include summary and reference information to apprise heirs of the existence of due procedures and a legal framework under which they may exercise their rights.
