Can’t find policy’s

5 replies 327 views
My father died in July , all his paperwork was ‘stolen’ out of his friends car. I can’t find his pension or policy’s and he was collecting royalties as my grandfather invented something ? But I can’t find the company’s that hold his money. 
Please help

    What was 'all his paperwork' doing in one place? Doesn't sound very convincing. I'd have another word with his 'friend'.

    Is there a will and do you know where it is? If you know where he banked, get copies of bank statements and they should show you who was paying him what.

    There was no will?
    Your father was unmarried at the time of his death?
    You are his only child?
    You have been able to access his home?

    Unfortunately I have moved to Devon and my dad passed away with out me knowing . 
    Nobody could find me or so they said, he wasn’t ill and had a heart attack leaving no will. 
    They had a funeral without me and cleared out my dads flat ( he rented ) 

    my dad told his family he wanted me to benefit financially from his policy’s , but I can’t find them as they were supposedly stiffen from his friends car

    Doesn’t sound plausible unless you’ve deliberately blocked contacts on your phone, email and even then they could have sent you a letter.
    doesnt sound feasible that someone would put all their paperwork in a car (unless both him and his friend had dimensions).
    bank statement may help.
    did he have a will?
    did he have a partner?
    are there other children?
    who has been arranging the funeral and taking the possessions?
