NAIC Life Insurance Policy Locator Helps Consumers Find Lost Life Insurance Benefits – Yahoo Finance

WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ (NAIC) Life Insurance Policy Locator (LIPL) helps to connect consumers with their deceased loved ones’ lost life insurance policies and annuity contracts.
“Dealing with the financial aftermath in the death of a loved one is difficult and often confusing,” said NAIC President and Idaho Insurance Director Dean Cameron.
“You might be asking if they had insurance. Their checking account shows a payment was made to a company, but how do you know if there is coverage? The LIPL can help you through the process. This free online tool is available to anyone and is one of the ways insurance regulators help consumers get their entitled insurance benefits,” said Cameron.
How to use the Life Insurance Policy Locator
The Locator is easy to use. In your web browser, go to, hover over Consumer, and click Life Insurance Policy Locator under Tools.

Submit a search request by entering the deceased’s information from the death certificate:
After all required fields are complete, click the submit button.  
Your request will be stored in a secure, encrypted database where participating life insurance and annuity companies can access the information through a secure portal. You will receive a “Do Not Reply” email confirming the request details you submitted. If a policy is found and you are the beneficiary, the life insurance or annuity company will contact you directly, usually within 90 days.
If no policy is found or you are not the beneficiary, you will not be contacted. Please note that the NAIC has no policy or beneficiary information.

Cathie Wood has built her career on holding contrarian views and her Ark Invest firm has been known to go against the grain. As such, 2022’s bear market has done little to change her stance. In fact, recently, Wood has been arguing that the Fed’s aggressive monetary stance in its ongoing efforts to curb soaring inflation is misguided. Highlighting deflationary signals, Wood says that unless it changes tack, the Fed’s actions could result in a repeat of the the Great Depression. “If the Fed does

If a time machine could take you back to the start of the 2000s — without the desire to open up a crypto wallet — what’s the No. 1 investment you would make? Maybe Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), which has sold 1.3 billion iPhones since 2007 and reported a $19.4 billion profit last quarter? Or Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA), which went from selling just 937 cars in 2009 to over 300,000 last year? Some savvy income investors might consider Altria Group Inc. (NYSE: MO). The tobacco giant, formerly Phillip M

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has returned a staggering 3,641,614% since its inception in 1965. Those results speak for themselves. By comparison, the S&P 500 has returned 30,209% in the same time frame. A single dollar invested in Berkshire Hathaway in 1965 would have turned into $36,714, while the same dollar invested into the S&P 500 would have returned just $303. But not even Buffett is immune to the law of large numbers. The bigger something gets, the harder it is for it to keep growi
When I first heard that Elon Musk had determined the identity of his successor, I breathed a sigh of relief. Musk's successor will run Tesla, not Twitter. Elon is sleeping at Twitter headquarters, and says he'll continue to do so until that company "is in a strong place."
