Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the sister will not disclose the contents of mom's estate to you have to file a petition for probate in the probate court together with a motion for YOU to be named administrator of the estate. Once you do that you can force he into court to disclose ALL of the assets including the insurance policies. Then you can find out everything that was in the accounts and also you and your sister can then split your fair share of the estate.
The only problem you could have is if that insurance policy was in your sister's name as beneficiary, because then she would not be liable to share that insurance policy with you, she would be entitled to it all by herself and the only way for you to find that out is to file your petition for probate and get named as administrator of the estate to find out.
