How much time can an insurance company take to pay a claim when proof of the loss has been submitted?

It depends. An insurance company can violate the Kentucky Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act when it fails to affirm or deny coverage of a claim within a reasonable time after proof of loss statements have been completed and submitted. Obviously, what is a "reasonable time" can vary depending on the circumstances and the claim.
