The USPS now has a feature called informed delivery.   I’m not an attorney and I can’t find a citation, but if you have this feature in the future it looks like it would be excellent evidence to backup an assertion that the Insurance company never sent a bill or late notice.

  1. That’s interesting.

    While, of course, it might not show that someone never sent something, it could possibly serve as evidence that something was never delivered.

    Generally speaking, the way that’s handled now is someone makes a statement under oath or by affirmation (the whole “I declare under penalty of perjury” thing), and unless the other person can show by certified, registered, or delivery confirmation mail that it was delivered, the lack of receiving is presumed. Sometimes, though, if the person can show that it was mailed as in a certificate of mailing by a law office, it will be presumptively received, but judges don’t usually like that argument.

    We’ll have to see how accurate the post office is found to be with this new service!
