What is the value of a life insurance policy from Metropolitan life insurance taken out in 1924?

This answer will depend on the type of policy that was taken out and if the policy is still "in force". If the policy is a term policy (unlikely), whatever is the death benefit face amount of the policy. If the policy is whole life or universal life policy, the policy may have a cash surrender value and a death benefit value. Meaning that you may be able to simply cash out the policy and get a check prior to death. Or, upon death, the value would be the death benefit face amount plus any unpaid dividends and interest minus any loans that may have been taken out. I am happy to answer more questions or help you with this. Brian Lombardo, CPA, Agent

What rights do you have over a life insurance policy taken out by your parents while you were an adult?

If your parents took out a life insurance policy and paid for it, the policy belongs to them and even if you are the person whose life is insured, that does not give you rights over that policy. I am not entirely sure why your parents would feel the need to have life insurance for their adult progeny, but possibly they are concerned that if you were to suffer a tragic premature death, they would be stuck with funeral expenses that they could not afford to pay unless they had an insurance policy to help them.

If you cash in a life insurance policy do you have to pay taxes on it?

"Insurance and Taxes. No. All proceeds or withdrawals from any insurance policy are not taxable." This is not true. If you cancel a life insurance policy, the growth on the cash value IS TAXABLE. If you do not surrender your policy, the money is taken as a loan and therefore not taxable, but interest that has to be paid back to the insurance company grows.

Can you find out if someone has life insurance on you?

I don't think so. Typically life insurance policies are taken by people for themselves or for their family members.

So, the chances that some random individual has taken a policy on your name are pretty slim and even if they have, the insurance co will not share details with you.
