Especially in the case of assisting an elderly loved one or settling the estate of a loved one, finding a lost policy can be very difficult. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners makes the following recommendations to help locate a policy.
To begin, gather personal details of the insured individual including full name, maiden name for a married individual, Social Security number and the state of residence when the policy would have been purchased if possible. Once a benefit is located you'll also need a copy of the death certificate. You need to determine the name of the insurance company and/or the name of the broker or agent who sold the policy.
