I'm sorry to hear about the death of your daughter. That has to be painful.
However, in your case you may be in luck when it comes to her life insurance. The reason is two-fold: 1) you have a document showing you as the beneficiary for her pension and life insurance benefits. If the document that you have is authentic (meaning that it is not a forgery) then you should be able to get those under her policies. 2) Even if you can't prove it, because your daughter died without a will, her estate (including her benefits) will go through what's called intestacy. All this means is that the state is going to look to the next of kin to figure out how to distribute the property. Because she had no kids and was not married, the next of kin is almost always the parents. Accordingly, you should receive the property.
