    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Yes it was the lawyer. I'm not under the impression she knows for sure, to be honest. I think she isnt sure, hasn't inquired and therefore is covering bases by telling us to wait. But that's a gut feeling not a fact.

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    To be honest it's not primarily about the money, we just want it all to be over. We are worn out and tired of the run around, the lost documents, the lack of answers or transparency. That is where the rush is: we want to go through probate so that we can move on. But that is a separate issue...

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Thank you for this advice, you are leading me to believe that we should pursue this more aggressively. It's hard to see how tired and checked out you really are until someone else gives you some persepctive. I do, more than anything, just want all of this to be over- I would like the probate to...

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Yes, as far as we understand we cannot move forward until the court approves our final guardianship report. Even though we technically we're only guardians for a matter of days, they must verify that we fulfilled our duties appropriately before we can benefit from his death. This doesn't apply...

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    That all makes sense, thank you for taking the time to read this! It sounds like we just have to wait. The court lost some of our paperwork from the temporary guardianship report that was sent (we have all of the proof that it was sent and multiple copies mailed to multiple places, so they are...

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Hahah, you are right we shouldn't! And it makes sense that he wouldn't be POA anymore, just frustrating- honestly because we are already frustrated from the past year. For the medicaid application we had to request statements from the life insurance policy to confirm that the policy had no cash...

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Thank you for these suggestions, it is so frustrating! So we tried contacting them again and this is what they are telling my brother: they say that he has no right to see a copy of the policy or get any informatiom unless he is named executor. This is despite the fact that he was the financial...

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Ah that is good to know! We we're so focused on the guardianship and medicaid that we we're completely unprepared to deal with the life insurance... As fate would have it, the courts finally granted us guardianship 3 days before he passed.

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    It was a private policy as far as we can tell. You will have to forgive my general ignorance, apologies in advance! We do not have a copy of the original policy, unfortunately. What we have is a tall stack of statements and things. I'm going to try to figure out how to attach an image to show...

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Thanks for replying! He purchased the policy in July of 2002 and has paid on-time ever since.

    Life Insurance only paid partial amount?

    Hello There, I am wondering if anyone knows of any reason why a life insurance company would not pay out the full amount to a beneficiary? My father tragically passed in October 2018. He had a stroke out of nowhere 11 months prior and rapidly declined. We were shocked to find out that he had a...
