Vt. has life insurance money intended for 2,500

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont treasurer's office says it's trying to find about 2,500 people who are owed about $2.3 million in unclaimed life insurance payments.

Treasurer Beth Pearce says her office has received the money as the result of a multi-state initiative to require life insurance companies to pay out on old, sometimes forgotten, policies.

Vermonters can see if they're due any money through a website hosted by the treasurer's office.

The site can be found at http://www.vermonttreasurer.gov/unclaimed-property/ and click on the page, "Life Insurance Policies." Vermonters can search for unclaimed property online or call the Unclaimed Property Division at 802-828-2407 or toll-free in Vermont a 1-800-642-3191.
