How Can I Find Out About Life Insurance Policies?

The Child Trust Funds (CTF) were introduced by the Government in 2005 to ensure every child has savings at the age of 18. Many CTF holders are still unaware of their entitlement or have lost connection with these accounts, with an estimated 700,000 CTFs being dormant. If you think you or your child might have a lost CTF, you could find out where your CTF account is by contacting HMRC.

Finding a Lost Insurance Policy

If you have a motor or home insurance policy, or any other type of insurance, but you do not have the policy document or do not know the name of the company that issued it, there is no central policy database you can check. However, you can:

  • Contact the broker who sold you the policy
  • Check your bank statements for any payments made to an insurance company
  • Check with any trade or professional organizations you are a member of, as they may offer group insurance schemes
