A duty is caste upon the insured to supply all requisite documents to the insurance company for efficacious settlement of claims. however, a corresponding duty is caste upon the insurance company to settle the claims at the earliest and without any unnecessary delays, otherwise the same may amount to deficiency in services and may give rise to a consumer claim. If in case you are of the opinion and are in a position to produce records to reasonable show that despite your best and diligent efforts, your claims are not being settled on one pretext or the other, then you might file a consumer complaint for deficiency in services and harassment before the appropriate court seeking to get your claim settled along with costs/damages for harassment, if any. Also, what documents/declarations are to be supplied/made and the relevancy/consequences of such documents are matters that are not capable of being answered/opined upon with the limited set of facts stated above.

Please note that the given set of facts are not sufficient to give a conclusive opinion on the matter and the above stated opinion is only preliminary in nature. Consultation Advised.
