Q: Am I entitled to my father's insurance?

My late father passed away when I was around 14. I'm 23 and I never received any information about my father's life insurance. I don't even know what to do about it.

A: Sorry about the loss of your father. It's challenging to find lost life insurance policies, though not impossible. You can check the unclaimed funds in any State your father may have lived in and see if his name or your name appears. There are also services that can help locate lost policies. If he had an employer, you can also check with them to see if they had any insurance offered by the company.
