Unclaimed billions: Are you owed a life insurance payout?



By Barbara Marquand

Life insurance is supposed to provide peace of mind, but for some policyholders, it becomes out of sight, out of mind. Policies are stuck in drawers and forgotten. Family members may not know they’re listed as beneficiaries on a policy. As a result, billions of dollars in life insurance benefits have gone unclaimed.
