That depends upon the type of policy it is. Term insurance has no value once the term expires. Whole life insurance has value, and can be cashed in. Read the terms of the policy. Given that the policy in question was found, and therefore was probably forgotten before it was found, I doubt that is has value - but check and see.

If you have found an old whole life insurance policy and you?

don't know what to do with it, you should phone the insurance company and ask if the policy is still in force and if so, if it has any cash value. You might either want to cash it out, or to keep it as life insurance. It's up to you. If it has lapsed and has no cash value, then it is irrelevant.
