Finding an Insurance Company
How can I go about finding out what insurance company bought out my father's insurance policy's company? He had a policy with the Independent Life Insurance Company.
We've tackled this question in the past. It's a tough one, but it will likely require that you either hire a "Business Researcher" or get some help from a Business Librarian. What you need is someone who can help you sort through the "change of hands" from one insurance company to another.
Business research people can sometimes be found through a lawyer that specializes in business law and incorporation. A good business librarian can usually be found at a good college or university campus. You may also have a good business library with business librarians on staff in a larger metropolitan area.
