If my distant relative named me the sole beneficiary on their life insurance policy years ago, how am I supposed to find out if there is any money owed to me?
Finding out if there is any coming coming to you when you are named the sole beneficiary to a distant relative many years ago can be difficult. The longer the relative passed away, the more difficult it is to look up their records. If your relative took out the life insurance policy before the computer, then finding the records many be very difficult and take a long time. You will need to contact the name of the insurance company to see if there is any money coming to you. One way you can speed up this process is by having the policy number on hand. This will increase your chances of finding the records and claiming what is yours.
