Life Insurance Policy - Duplication Request
I purchased a life insurance policy while in college about 15 years ago with a company that is domiciled in Rhode Island. I lived in Illinois and I was married at the time the policy was purchased.
A policy was originally issued to my in-laws or former spouse but I never saw the policy. I did not get around to requesting a duplicate copy of the policy until this year 2003 when I was informed by the life insurance company that they do not issue duplicate policies.
All premiums have been paid in full to date. How do I get a copy of this term life insurance policy from the insurance company?

Re: Life Insurance Policy - Duplication Request
Your insurance company should be able to either provide you with a copy or tell you were you could obtain one. Also, you might want to check with the Illinois Department of Insurance.
Separately, if it was a term policy, as you say, do you know what the term was? If it was only, say, ten years, do you really need the policy?
