$31 Million Owed in Life Insurance

A state audit has discovered 31-million dollars in unpaid life insurance benefits.

State Treasurer, John Kennedy declared the discovery Tuesday. He says, the money was found when comparing outstanding policies of a dozen insurance companies with social security death records.

Kennedy says the money belongs to Louisianians who didn’t realize they were in line for benefits from insurance policies.

One woman was cut a check for 500-thousand dollars.
