    Previous employers: Previous employers should be contacted, to know if the person was a part of any group insurance plan or scheme.

    Income tax returns: Income tax returns should be checked for any tax deduction, or any returns availed, on any of the policy holder's investments.

    Answered . If you feel you or a loved one were wrongfully denied money to which you were entitled under a life insurance policy, this could be insurance bad faith. You should contact my office so we can discuss what can be done to help force the policy to pay.
