scott, the two were unable to smooth over differences over rnc rules and delegate allocations or decide if there will be any more presidential debates. how does this change the race? joining us from washington, john dickerson, cbs news political director and anchor of "face the nation." john, how does the delegate map shape up for trump now after new york? >> so far, donald trump has 844 delegates. to lock in the nomination at 1,237 delegates. that's the majority, he'll need to get 52% of the remaining delegates in contests coming up. and some of them are quite favorable to him. connecticut, maryland, pennsylvania, rhode island and new jersey. but, he is going to have to perform at the top of his game if he is going to clear that 1,237 pledge delegate threshold.
3:13 am
1,237 being the number, but, it could be less than that? he could clinch with less than that? >> there is some wiggle room. there will be about 100, little more than 100 unpledged delegates who will go to the convention in cleveland with no allegiance to anyone. if donald trump is short of the 1,237 mark, he could convince some of those unpledged delegates to come his way and give him the majority on the first ballot. it is also possible, that there could be some credentials challenges that take delegates away from his total though. so wiggle room could go either way. >> lot of horse trading yet to do. what about the democrats? >> hillary clinton she has 1,425 pledged delegates. if you add her lead with the pledged delegates to the superdelegates where she has 502 to bernie sanders' 38, she would only need to win 27% of the remaining delegates to reach the democrats magic number which is 2,383. for sanders, he would need 73% of the remaining delegates. >> last primary is june 7. john dickerson we will be watching you on "face the

3:41 am
"60 minutes." the beneficiary never comes forward he or she doesn't know the policy exists. >> reporter: the companies know says kevin mccarty, the insurance commissioner of florida who led the national task force investigating the industry. and the companies don't pay, he says, unless a beneficiary makes a claim. >> what we found is that companies have actual knowledge in their files that people have died yet they have neglected to initiate an investigation and pay the claim. >> in other words, life insurance companies are faelg to pay out death benefits when they know the person is dead and they're claiming they don't know. >> in many cases that has been exactly what we have found. >> when you found that -- what, what, went on inside you. >> my first instinct was unleash

3:45 am
code. i am here to say that you have a spent to investigate a claim if you know someone has died. and if you have a letter that says you are decease you'd have actual knowledge the person has died. >> reporter: insurance come pans are regulated separately by each state. and he says, similar laws are on the books across the country. state regulators first got wind of the insurance industry practice from jim hartly and jeff drubner who run a technology auditing company, veris financial. based on an insider tich in 2006, drubner employing techniques used as an fbi agent combed through insurance company data and discovered the insurers were using the social security death master file which is a constantly updated list of people who have died in the united states. what was the significance that they were using the death master file for something? >> i knew at that point. >> they knew who is alive and
3:46 am
>> they know who they inshurd. if they have a list of everybody that passed away i knew that they new. >> reporter: what us the next step? >> the next step was speak to the states. there wasn't one treasurer, one controller or one attorney general who didn't have a reaction that this, this sthunt be allowed to happen. we have to fix it. >> reporter: drubner went on to discover most insurance companies use the death master file only when it was to their advantage to cut off annuity or retirement payments once the policyholder died. but they didn't then notify the life insurance side of the company. >> we have actual cases, lessly, where a policy holder had both an annuity and a life policy. and they term nated the annuity. and they knew the person was dead. >> claimed over here that they didn't know he was dead. >> leslie, when we went in and looked at the memos. the right side told the left side.
3:47 am
>> saw it in the audits. >> saw it in the audits. >> something else they saw in the audits related to whole life insurance policies. that in addition to a death ben fit, build up a cash nest egg like a 401(k). what they found is that when a beneficiary did not come forward, the company continued to pay themselves premiums out of the dead person's nest egg. in this $20,000 policy for instance, the nest egg was drained down, more than $9,000, to zero, after the person had died. california controller betty yi says that kind of siphoning off was widespread in cases where beneficiaries did not come forward. >> how could you not be outraged by this? >> reporter: she says in a third of the cases there was evidence of death in the file. >> here we have the policyholder. >> reporter: the actual file
3:48 am
deceased? >> yes. in large, large, unmistakable letters. >> deceased and date of death. >> reporter: still they didn't stop paying themselves? >> no, no. you would have thought with that kind of indication, the next step would be to confirm that, by looking at the death master file and beginning the claims process with the family member. >> reporter: they didn't. >> they didn't. >> reporter: when the cash was all used up. the companies cancel the policy. under the law, they're allowed to pay themselves premiums using their customer's accumulated cash, while they're alive. florida's mccarty says the law was originally intended as a way to protect consumers. >> for instance if you have a life policy and you lose your job and you can't make your premium payment, they will take some of the cash value that is built up in your policy, and pay the premium. which is great for consumer er protection. >> reporter: but in this situation after they died -- i think it is tantamount to stealing when you know, you know
3:49 am
and you drain the policy. now if you think about that. if you would have explained that trying to sell the policy. >> reporter: at the beginning. >> sitting in your kitchen and saying, you know, you have got all of these symbols of security and financial stability. we are going to be there for you with your family in their grief. but they say, oh, by the way. if you stick that policy in a shoe box and stick it in your closet not only are we not going to look for you but we are going to take all the cash value in it. >> see the full report on our website. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. dry is everything. have you tried dove advanced care? advanced care? 48 hours wow just give it a try! hehe feels nice oh my gosh ok this is very very smooth. i am not messing around it's soft. i did not know that antiperspirant can actually make my skin feel good. your antiperspirant should give you more
