Answer:

Stanley, You would have to check with the retirement funds attached to his former employers (MIBFA, Murray & Roberts, etc) to see if his benefit was paid out or not. Chances are, he would have claimed his benefits as he moved from employer to employer, so only his last employer may still have a benefit in his name. They may also have paid out this benefit already, typically to the deceased's financial dependants. As another option, you could ask a reputable financial adviser with access to the Astute system to a funds search for you under his ID number.
