There, unfortunately, is no easy way to research this information. You can do the following to start your search:

1) Go through your mother's important documents, as there may be a policy or information regarding payments to a policy in those documents that may lead to a specific active policy. Check to see if there was a safety deposit box opened at any local banks that your mother may have used.

2) Ask your mother's accountant,financial planner, attorney and/or tax person if known, as this may have been discussed with one or more of them.

3) You can search through various unclaimed money websites. the upside is that they have access to huge databases that can search multiple states to find available funds. The downside is that there is a cost and sometimes they share in the funds found. If your personal search does not find anything and you feel strongly enough that there may some insurance or other funds out there then you may consider a website like I mentioned. 

Hope this helps!
