  1. Are death benefits of an insurance contract reportable?

Yes The OECD implementation handbook describes Information with respect to Other Accounts is the total gross amount paid or credited to the Account Holder with respect to the account with respect to which the Reporting Financial Institution is the obligor or debtor. Further description states Gross amount includes, for example, the aggregate amount of: any redemption payments made (in whole or part) to the Account Holder; and any payments made to the Account Holder under a Cash Value Insurance Contract or an Annuity Contract even if such payments are not considered Cash Value.
