Question – How do you find out if someone has a life insurance policy on you?


You need to sign an application of consent in order to have a life insurance policy taken out on you.  If you did not sign an application, there is no way somebody has a life insurance policy on you, unless it is fraudulent.

Instances of fraudulent life insurance policies are extremely rare because most life insurance policies also require medical examinations before being issued.

In addition, insurances companies also like to make sure that the person buying the life insurance policy has an insurable interest in the insured person.  Examples of “insurable interest” are a wife who relies on her husband’s income or an employer who relies on work from his/her employee.  Unless there is insurable interest, it is rare that an insurance company would allow a policy to be issued.

With that being said, if you still believe there is a chance that somebody has a life insurance policy on you, you can run a search with the Medical Information Bureau (MIB) for $75.

    1. You should contact the authorities! And the insurance bureau in your state if the policy was taken out fraudulently.

  15. Strongly suspect a LI policy taken out on me (without my knowledge) by ex-wife, who I caught perpetrating several other identify theft schemes. It is potentially tragic that no national database exists for a living person to learn whether there is a policy on him/her. My state bureau said it can’t help unless I furnish actual proof of the fraud. WHAT?!?

    Contact NAIC and your state lawmakers to help right this glaring omission in consumer/citizen protection. Criminals in this realm, usually someone you know, are more common than the ‘articles’ on insurance sights would have you believe

    1. He may, and assuming it was taken out legally, he has a right to continue to own it. You can call the life insurance company, as the insured person you have a right to know.

  17. How do I find out if the adopted parents of my disabled daughter have life insurance on her? Thank you so much MM

    1. The truth is if they are the parents and legal guardians, you probably can not find out this information. Don’t assume that just because someone has life insurance on the life of another, that they are rooting for the death of that person. Life insurance provides important financial protection.
