The Policy Locator Service Report

If application activity is identified, the report will provide the name of the company, the date the application was submitted, and the appropriate contact information for your follow-up activity to see if a policy was issued and remains in-force. The report notifies you whether application activity was identified or not. A Policy Locator Service report will be mailed within 21 business days after MIB receives a completed, written application. A search of the Policy Locator Service may provide evidence that an application was submitted on the life of the decedent, and such an application may have resulted in the issuance of a policy. Results cannot be guaranteed.


Executors or administrators of a decedent's estate are permitted to order a report of life insurance application activity. If no executor or administrator has been appointed, then a surviving spouse or the decedent's closest surviving relative may be eligible to order a Policy Locator Service report.

To submit a Policy Locator Service request, you will need to mail the following to MIB Solutions, Inc.:

  • A completed application form including notary verification.

  • An original death certificate (we will return the death certificate to you with your report).

  • A money order or bank certified check for $75 U.S. (non-refundable).

1In this context, "application activity" means an application for new coverage, an application to modify existing coverage or to reinstate coverage or an application for benefits on a policy (for example, a claim for waiver of premium).
