How To Find Your Life Insurance Policy?

So you think you be named as the beneficiary on a deceased person’s life insurance policy. How do you go about finding the policy and finding out if you are the beneficiary? Louisiana Life Insurance Lawyers and the Louisiana Insurance Commissioner would recommend you contact the former employers of the deceased to see if the deceased had group life coverage with them. Contact banks and credit unions who often offer term life insurance to their customers. Look through the deceased’s personal papers and filing cabinets and computer records for records relating to life insurance policies. Contact professional associations, unions, and fraternal organizations of the deceased associated. For policies purchased in Louisiana, you can also submit an online written request to the Louisiana Insurance Commissioner.
