I'm sorry for your loss. I hope your father had good estate planning documents. If so, the letter of instruction should list all asset and insurance amounts and contact information. If not, you have your work cut out for you. First, sort through your father's paperwork for any evidence of life insurance policies (I assume that's what you mean by "insurances"). If you were named beneficiary, your job will be easier. Call the contact number for each policy to find out what each company requires in order to give you information such as your father's death certificate and proof of your identity. They will tell you what they need in order to pay a death benefit. You should also check with the human resources department of the company where he was employed to see if he had any group insurances.
