I am trying to find out if my recently deceased parent in fact had life insurance.
In the will that he wrote out 1 year ago dated June 5, 2008 he clearly states that his life insurance policy has a clause that would pay up to $20K in funeral expenses. Remaining funds from life insurance to be entrusted to myself and 2nd sibling to maintain until minor sibling reaches 18 years of age.He also states that a has funds in bank account(s) to bequest $2500 to several family members (16 persons in total).
I have not been able to locate a bank account with any funds covering such an amount $40k or nor have I located a life insurance policy.
Is there a life insurance commission that I could contact in the state of Oregon? and would the IRS be able to help me locate banking information?
