My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: New York
I was going through some old papers and found three insurance policies, dated 1947, that my maternal grandmother had in which her husband was the beneficiary. In the event of his decease, the benefit would go to her eldest son. That son is also deceased as is all the other children of my grandmother. However, the wife of that uncle is still alive. I called her up and offered to give her the policies, but she wasn't interested. Now I am wondering what to do with them or if they are still any good. What would be the best course of action?
