ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – Less than one week after turning to Better Call Behnken for help finding her missing insurance policy money, Eleanor Fetkin has a check for the full $1,250.
“I’m real happy, and I thank you for helping us get it back,” Fetkin said.
Eleanor kept track of the 1934 life insurance policy her mother bought her. But when the 94-year-old needed the money now, her son Bob Fetkin was told by MetLife that the policy no longer existed.
“For me, taking on MetLife was taking on an 800-pound gorilla,” Bob Fetkin said. “I couldn’t get anywhere, and you guys were able to open doors that we weren’t able to. And I’m very much appreciative to you and your team at Channel 8 for getting the results that you guys did.”
Better Call Behnken called MetLife and confirmed the money was sent years ago to California, Unclaimed Property Division.
I called the state, and then MetLife decided to send Eleanor a check. Her son is thrilled.
“I was really shocked,” he said. “I was confident you guys would get results. I didn’t know you’d get results that quickly.”
