My Mother has a Life Insurance Policy, but it lapst on Jan 7 2017. She was in the hospital and then Rehab at this time. She lives by her self. They forced her to retire. She called them to possibly get it reinstated. Sent letter back denied. Now she worked for this company who wrote the policy. In April 2017 we found she has stage 4lung cancer terminal she's in hospice as we speak. She went on dialysis in December 2016 due to a reaction to an antibiotic. So she made me her POA. So I called her previous employer asked the atty told him my Mom's name & mine as well. Was calling about the life insurance policy being lapsed. He said and I quote ( I have no record of any policy ) I said you don't, well I guess I will have someone else look at it. Then he remembers all about it!! He said it won't be reinstated. I feel he is not being honest & fair to my Mom. any idea's

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
