Looking in The 'Lost and Found'
Finding a Life Insurance Benefit When You Don't Have the Policy
Information You Need
Before you start your search, collect necessary documents and information. An old copy of the policy will be most helpful. You'll need some personal details of the insured individual including the full name (maiden name for a married individual), Social Security number and the state where the policy was purchased. To claim the benefit you'll also need a copy of the death certificate.
