My mother died recently and her husband my step father is

Customer Question

My mother died recently and her husband my step father is surviving. She had her own back account and my step father has closed the account and transferred the money to his account - is this correct? She also took out a life insurance that would be payable to me on her death, however my step father is being difficult and will not let me search any paperwork to try and claim this - which I feel he may have already had access to - how can I check? Finally before my mother met my step father she accumulated a vast amount of precious jewelry which I have not been able to access - do I have any rights to this?
